I am just a lonesome cowboy And I'm travelling all alone I ain't even got a nickel To call my baby on the phone
Just beyond the mountain lies a city And I hear it calling me Saddle up and ride you lonesome cowboy Here is where you'll find your destiny In my dreams the lights shine bright and pretty Near to me and yet so far Will I always be a lonesome cowboy Am I only reaching for a star
Ride. Ride, ride, ride along cowboy Sing, sing, sing, sing a song cowboy
Will I ever leave this lonesome valley Really see the lights that shine Gotta find what lies beyond the mountain Gotta rope and tie that dream of mine
I am just a lonesome cowboy And I'm travelling all alone If you don't call me baby Then I'm never coming home.
