Anthrax – Cowboy Song Lyrics

Originally by Thin Lizzy.

(Lynott, Downey)

I am just a cowboy lonesome on the trail

A starry night, a campfire light

The coyote call, the howling winds wail

So I ride out to the old sundown

I am just a cowboy lonesome on the trail

Lord, I’m just thinking about a certain female

The nights we spent together riding on the range

Looking back it seems so strange

Roll me over and turn me around

Let me keep spinning ’till I hit the ground

Roll me over and let me go

Running free with the buffalo

I was took in Texas, I did not know her name

Lord, all these southern girls seem the same

Down below the border in a town in Mexico

I got my job busting broncs for the rodeo

Roll me over and turn me around

Let me keep spinning ’till I hit the ground

Roll me over and let me go

Riding in the rodeo

Roll me over and set me free

The cowboy’s life is the life for me
