There's a little boy on his knees beside his bed
With a cowboy hat upon his bowed head
Tryin' to keep the tears in his eyes
And his heart breaks as the little cowboy cries

As the cowboy cries
He says God forgive me please
I didn't want my daddy to leave
And I promise to be good this time
But his heart breaks as the little cowboy cries

There's another heart in pain outside his door
His momma heard him cry as she walked the floor
Her love for his daddy has died
And her heart breaks as her little cowboy cries

As her cowboy cries
She says God forgive me please
I know I made him leave
But the pain will go away in time
But her heart breaks as her little cowboy cries

In a smoky little bar way downtown
His daddy is drinkin' whiskey down
Tryin' to kill the pain he feels inside
And his heart breaks as his little cowboy cries

And his cowboy cries
He says God forgive me please
I know I had to leave
Things haven't been good for a long, long time
And his heart breaks as his little cowboy cries
As his cowboy cries
As his cowboy cries
As his cowboy cries
As his cowboy cries
As the cowboy cries
As the cowboy cries
As the cowboy cries
As the cowboy cries
