Are There Any More Real Cowboys?

(Written: t.b.d.)


Are there any more
    real cowboys
Left out in these hills?
Will the fire hit the iron
One more time?
And will one more
    dusty pick-up
Coming rolling down the road
With a load of feed
    before the sun gets high?
Well, I hope that
    working cowboy never dies.

Not the one
    that's snortin' cocaine
When the honky-tonk's all closed
But the one
    that prays for more rain
Heaven knows
That the good feed
    brings the money
And the money buys the clothes
Not the diamond sequins
    shining on TV
But the kind the
    working cowboy really needs.

Are there any more
    country families
Still working hand in hand
Trying hard to stay together
And make a stand?
While the rows and rows of houses
Come creepin' up on the land
Where the cattle graze and
    an old grey barn still stands
Are there any more
    real cowboys in this land?

Are there any more
    real cowboys in this land?
