All my life I've been a cowboy in my heart
Every western hero on the screen's
Been with me from the start
Ridin' high and showin' me the way
And they've been there with me through my toughest times
We'd ride out to the boundries but we never crossed those lines
And that's a code that I'm still livin' by today

The code of the west was black and white
Good guys and the bad
You would always know who's wrong or right
By the color of their hat

Now there aren't so many happy trails
I've ridden some you wouldn't wanna see
You don't go off into the sunset
And they don't run from sea to shinin' sea

And it's good to see the bad guys on the run
While our modern day heroes show 'em how the west was won
On their trail 'til they bring the last one down
We could use a few more cowboys here today
A few more days of reckoning and a lot more hell to pay
Where that debt is owed there ain't no middle ground

The code of the west was black and white
The good guys and the bad
You would always know who's wrong or right
By the color of their hat

Now there aren't so many happy trails
I've ridden some you wouldn't wanna see
You don't go off into the sunset
And they don't run from sea to shinin' sea

The code of the west was black and white
The good guys and the bad
You would always know who's wrong and who was right
By the color of their hat

Now there aren't so many happy trails
I've ridden some you wouldn't wanna see
You don't go off into the sunset
And they don't run from sea to shinin' sea

All my life I've been a cowboy in my heart
