There are fences the need to be mended
There's a stray cut off from the heard
That needs to be defended
By a lonely campfire
Underneath the stars
He sings his sad songs
And strums his guitar
Tell u what the world could use
Is a little john wayne kind of attitude

(chorus)
The world could use a cowboy right about now
Run those bad guys right outa town
Round 'em up and hunt 'em down
The world could use a cowboy right about now
The world could use a cowboy...

There's a stallion that wont be broken
All the town folk need to here
A word of courage spoken
From new york city to atlanta G.A.
From edmonton to californ-ia
I tell you what the world could use
Is a roy rogers and a trigger too...

(chorus)
The world could use a cowboy right about now
Run those bad guys right outa town
A bronckin' buck, you can't keep down
The world could use a cowboy right about now
The world could use a cowboy...

Tell you what the world could use
Is the cavalry riding to the rescue
Yeah, i tell you what the world could use
Is a little john wayne kind of attitude

The world could use a cowboy,the world could use a cowboy, yeah
The world could use a cowboy right about now
Run those bad guys right outa town
Put yours hands up, lay your weapons down
The world could use a cowboys right about now
The world could use a cowboy right about now
Rides off into the west when the sun goes down
He tips his hat
When the ladies come 'round
The world could use a cowboy right about now
The world could use a cowboy...
