Willie Nelson – So You Think You're A Cowboy lyrics

So you think you're a cowboy but you're only a kid
With a mind to do everything wrong
And it starts to get smoother when the circle begins
But by the time that you get there it's gone
So you think you're a winner but you're losing again
The cards are all lucky but then
And the hand that you're holding means nothing at all
Just knowing is all that is there
So you think you're a cowboy...
[ guitar ]
So your life is a fun the best that you can tomorrow is not right or wrong
And don't wait for tomorrow to bring you your dreams
Cause by the time that they get there they're gone
So you think you're a cowboy...
Yeah but by the time that you get there it's gone
