Jamey Johnson – The Last Cowboy lyrics

An old pickup truck
Means you're down on your luck anymore
And boots and straw hats
Are just a thing of the past anymore
And ever since Whelan I can't find no one
To buy into sad country songs
And tell me who's gonna ride us away
When the last cowboy's gone?

Is there a place I can find
Any three quarter time anymore?
Is there a dirty jukebox
That spins on a dime anymore?
They changed all the words
And the cowgirls they all sing along
But tell me who's gonna ride them away
When the last cowboy is gone?

If John Wayne, Gene and Roy
Are now just some cowboys
That yesterday stampeded on
And tell me who's gonna ride us away
Who's gonna do it that way
Does everything good have to change
'Til the last cowboy is gone?
