Oh, I am just a cowboy on my way back to Houston
I used to play the rodeos
But I can't play 'em like I used to
I've given it up I'm layin' it down
I've had enough of being a rodeo clown
So if I see a tear running down my face
Don't ask me why 'cause cowboys ain't supposed to cry.

--- Instrumental ---

Oh, I am just a drifter on my way back from Denver
I kept 'em laughin' from in my barrel
But now it seems it's too hard to handle
So I've given it up I'm layin' it down
I've had enough of being a rodeo clown
So if I see a tear running down my face
Don't ask me why 'cause cowboys ain't supposed to cry.

'Cause cowboys ain't supposed to cry...
