Hey Ol' Lady let's go

To the Motel Cowboy Show

We'll drink and dance

There's no place else to go

We'll stay out all night long

We'll toast the break of dawn

Hey Ol' Lady let's go

To the Motel Cowboy Show


Well they rolled one for the road

Put on the same dirty ol' clothes

Down the trail they rode

To the Motel Cowboy Show

Well they parked at the end of the line

Underneath the cold beer sign

It's a long long way to ride

Without your whiskey and your wine

Something stronger would be fine

Something stronger would be fine


I said Hey Ol' Lady lets go

To the Motel Cowboy Show

We'll drink and dance

There's no place else to go

We'll hang out all night long

We'll toast the break of dawn

Hey Ol' Lady let's go

To the Motel Cowboy Show


Well they walked through the swingin' doors

Through the sawdust on the floor

Everybody was ready to go

At the Motel Cowboy Show


Well they've been all over the land

Not bad for a honky tonk band

Well it's a long hard hill to climb

When you're so far ahead of time

And you've never seen a dime

You're so far ahead of your time


Hey Ol' Lady lets go

To the Motel Cowboy Show

It's late but there ain't nowhere else to go

We'll hang out all night long

We'll toast the break of dawn

Hey Ol' Lady let's go

To the Motel Cowboy Show


Well the doses soon kicked in

And the fun would soon begin

The fun would soon begin


And the world did a great big spin

Ooooh baby it's fun

It ain't no sin


I know you well

You don't remember

We partied way back in November

Of '72 or was it '73

I know you well

You don't remember me


All the faces changed

And the room went round

What a mystic place

What a mystic sound


Well they rolled one for the road

And they candied up their nose

Down the trail they rode

To the Motel Cowboy Show


Hey Ol' Lady let's go

To the Motel Cowboy Show

We'll drink and dance

There's no place else to go

The boys are in their prime

We'll see 'em one more time


Hey Ol' Lady let's go

To the Motel Cowboy Show
