I could be a cowboy
In the big wide open space
And every single sunrise
There's a story on my face
I wouldn't need a blanket
To keep me warm at night
I'd lay down all my secrets
The only thing by my side
I could be a cowboy but that'd mean leaving
Where the stars above are the company I'm keeping
I could walk right out the door and never come back home
Oh I could be a cowboy but I don't like to be alone
I could be a dreamer
A gun slinger in black and white
I could be the good guy
And always win the fight
Or I could lose a quick draw
And lay forgotten in the dust
Watching my last sunset
While my spirit turns to rust
I could be a cowboy but that'd mean leaving
Where the stars above are the company I'm keeping
I could walk right out the door and never come back home
Oh I could be a cowboy but I don't like to be alone, yeah
Oh, I could be a cowboy
In my muddy worn out boots
I could be a cowboy
It'd give me the right to run like you
I could be a cowboy oh, but that'd mean leavin
Where the stars above are the company I'm keeping
I could walk right out the door and never come back home
Oh I could be a cowboy but I don't like to be alone
