Shane Wyatt – The Last Cowboy lyrics

He rode a golden horse
With a golden heart
A forty-five
Strapped on his hip
I was twelve years old
When he passed on
Sometimes I think
That he still lives

Chorus (2x):
He was the last cowboy
In Oklahoma
The last true pioneer's son
He was the last cowboy
In Oklahoma
Never be another one
When I was old enough
To hold a gun
He taught me how to ride
And shoot
And I was proud
That I was his grandson
But could I ever
Fill the boots?

He said to work that gun
'Til it's a part
Of your own hand
Don't hesitate to defend
Your family or your land
Oh' and I tried to hang on
To every word he said to me
So he wouldn't have to be
Oh, oh, oh


Never be another one
Never be another one
Or am I the only one?
