They ride beneath the waves at 20,000 leaguesOn stallions stitched to seaweed strandsSo smiling, so smilingThey herd the fishes of the deepThey ride for you and meThey ranch the rich and the sunken soilAt the bottom of the seaIn the dead of night, alive in sleepI hear them calling meThem deep sea desperadoesThem midnight maelstrom freaksThe cowboy of the seaSo on wings of sleep I pierce the deepAnd ride like a hurricaneAt midnight still I paid my billAnd turned my back on the landWith the help of old paint, that seaweed nagIt’s just jesse james and meWe ride the depths and rob the banksAt the bottom of the seaWith a seaman’s grip on navigationAnd some fired, hired handsWe set forth to confront the nationAnd lend a cowboy’s handWe do the dolphins’ dance duetMy mermaid babe and meThen I ride of into the blue sunsetAt the bottom of the seaAnd with the seaman’s grip on submariningAnd some aqualung outlawsOur guns are made of solid dreamin’And bullets from a broken causeAnd with hand held high to touch the skyA good texas ranger I’ll bebut sometimes I feel like a lone stranger’midst the cowboys of the seaOh and men above he cannot make loveHe’s got to rape his mother the seaAnd because of his greedWe’re a vanishing breedWe cowboys of the sea
