Chris Ledoux – Thirty Dollar Cowboy lyrics

I'm just a workin' cowboy this ranch I'm on ain't mine
But I got a bed in the bunk houseand a place come supper time
I don't get much for wages but it's good enough for me
Maybe I don't own this place but mister I've got the key
Just a thirty dollar cowboy and I ride the lone prairie
The good Lord knows I'm happy cause I'm where I want to be
Well I ain't got much of nothing but I got about all I need
Just a thirty dollar cowboy with a million dollar dream

Someday I'm gonna buy a place that I can call my own
Find me a pretty lady and build us a little home
Until that day I'm gonna save all the wages I can
Who knows I may just buy this place and stay right where I am.
Just a thirty dollar cowboy...
Just a thirty dollar cowboy...
I'm just a thirty dollar cowboy with a million dollar dream
