Well you don't see him much on the big screen anymore
The kids don't ride along with Roy or Gene
And that ain't really him with all those feathers in his hat
And some frenchman's name embroidered on his jeans

Chorus:

But he's still out there ridin' fences
Still makes his livin' with his rope
As long as there's a sunset he'll keep ridin' for the brand
You just can't see him from the road

Well he never learned to two step hell he barely learned to walk
But he's worn a lot of leather off the tree
He's had one or two good horses that he counts among his friends
He never drew a breath that wasn't free

Repeat chorus:

Well he's tall in the saddle short on the cash
The last to quit the first to buy the beer
Well he's a knight in leather armor still livin' by the code
That's made him what he's been a hundred years

Repeat Chorus:

As long as there's a sunset he'll keep ridin' for the brand
You just can't see him from the road

    This song reminds me of a character of people
    who were honest, hard working and true to their own values and beliefs and would rather live life in the slow lane than to seek 15 minutes of fame... " livin' by the code" of the old west.
