  • Lyrics: Cowboy Song by Marty McDermott Well I wanna’ be a cowboy So I could ride the range I don’t even want to know about These New York City games A cowboy’s life’s a weary one Yes I know that’s true So when I get to bein’ lonesome I’ll just come home to be with you. Chorus: And you’ll see me ridin’ through the mountains, I’ll be ridin’ cross the old plateau With the desert sun in my eyes and I’d have the blues I know But I’ve got the blues anyhow sittin’ here in my dirty underwear So what the hell’s the difference I’d rather be ropin’ a steer. Well I wanna’ be a cowboy So I could ride a horse I’d sit around and sing songs at night and they’d be lonely songs of course And when I hit the next town I’d get my hair slicked up And truck on down to the local saloon just to see what I could pick up. Chorus Instrumental Break This fast, classy New York City life just ain’t the thing for me Sittin’ round the air conditioned room, watching the TV I’ll take the life on the prarie, any old year or day Cause when I get the yen to move along again I’d just up and ride away. Chorus (plus) So what the hell’s the difference I’d rather be drinkin’ a beer So what the hell’s the difference I’d rather be Anywhere but Here!!!
