Swingin' Thing – Cowboy On The Run lyrics

Here I stand with this bottle in my hand
I don't know what I'm gonna be
A modern day Gypsy, I got no home
A sinking ship in an endless sea
Well I stand in the crowd still I'm so alone
And I'm feelin like another round
So many plans have fallen through, my ship is goin' down

It's for your own good baby
You've got to stay away from me
For you I'm no good
I'd only take you down with me
Girl, hear what I'm saying
Lost in love just ain't no fun
Girl, hear what I'm saying
I'm just a cowboy on the run

Some people say that I'm much too young
To be feelin' the way I do
But I've seen so much pain and baby
I don't wanna hurt you
Some say there's love inside my heart
But I say you can't get blood from a stone baby


Ride for me baby


I'm no good for you
I'm no good for you
I'm no good for you
I'm no good, I'm no good for you
