I was a new kid on the circuit
Gold buckles in my eyes
But the horse I drew was plenty rank
Much to my surprise
I did a double back flip
And landed on my head
This old cowboy limped out in the arena
Leaned over me and said

You gotta cowboy up
When you get throwed down
Get right back in the saddle
As soon as you hit the ground
You heard that the tough get goin'

When the goin' gets tough
Around here what we say is
Boy you better cowboy up

By the end of my last season
They said I was among the best
So I proudly called a girl back home
Hopin' she would be impressed
But her momma said she married a guy
That I used to call my friend
But before the first tear could fall
These words came back again

You gotta cowboy up
When you get throwed down
You get right back in the saddle
As soon as you hit the ground
You heard that the tough get goin'
When the goin' gets tough
Around here what we say is
Boy you better cowboy up

Well its not an easy lesson
To learn in life and love
But its the only way to go
Whenever you bite the dust

You gotta cowboy up
When you get throwed down
Get right back in the saddle
As soon as you hit the ground
You heard that the tough get goin'
When the goin' gets tough
Around here what we say is
Boy you better cowboy up

Around here what we say is
Boy you better cowboy up
