Cowboys they are ladies men alright
They love 'em up & talk 'em up all night
But they're lonely when there's nothin' else to do
And that's what makes the cowboys sing the blues

He does a little Shakespere & he sings
He plays the mandolin & other things
He looks for love, beauty & I. Q.
And that's what makes the cowboys sing the blues


Cowboys have to fall in love get hurt & all that bit
Let thier hearts hang out so they can write you all a hit
So ladies if they ask you don't refuse
Let's all help the cowboys sing the blues

Inst verse.........

Cowboys they don't ever understand
This thing between a woman & a man
Untill they find the one they always lose
And that's what makes the cowboys sing the blues


A cowboy takes his lonely pen in hand
And tries to make somebody understand
But she has ears to hear a different tune
And that's what makes the cowboys sing the blues
