He’s been known to lose more than he wins
He falls down just to get back up again

And when he smiles
His face is weathered and leathered and lined
You can tell he’s learned to laugh
Through a lot of hard times

He gets by without shoving a drifter and a dreamer
Born to roam, rolls his own
What you get is what you see here

Once a cowboy always a cowboy
Between the blue sky and unbroken ground
He wears his freedom like a crown

Let the whole world around him change
That don’t mean a thing
Once a cowboy always a cowboy

She tries to tell him he’s running outta time
But that ain’t what you’d see
If you were looking through his eyes

He’s still chasing sunsets, still trying to find
Something better than what he left behind
She tries to love him but somehow she understands
That it was over the moment it began

Once a cowboy always a cowboy
Between the blue sky and unbroken ground
He wears his freedom like a crown

Let the whole world around him change
That don’t mean a thing
Once a cowboy always a cowboy

He’s been known to lose more than he wins
He falls down just to get back up again

Once a cowboy always a cowboy
Between the blue sky and unbroken ground
He wears his freedom like a crown

Let the whole world around him change
That don’t mean a thing
Once a cowboy always a cowboy
