Cowboy Blues

I Recently wrote lyrics to the following song for my band Audioroad.  Thought I would share.

Cowboy Blues (Lyrics)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A tired worn old man
Standing on edge of dawn
Peering back on a yesterday
And a love that was lost
A sunset that burned his eyes
They shut tight for the day
A girl he once held close
A lifetime that slipped away

A stronger man back then
Forged from braver lands
Wild and free like the wind
Lost among the lonely sands
She stole his restless heart
And found an open space
He tied an anxious horse
To an unfamiliar place

At times the night shines blue
Among the canyon walls
And light brings to pass
The beauty of it all
But light often fades
As cowboys sometimes do
And rivers run away
And cowboys often choose

Ride me back to her heart
Give me one more day
Forgive me for my wanderings
Let her know that I’d stayed
Tell the stars I loved her
This a cowboy prayed

A tired worn old man
Standing on edge of dawn
Peering back on a yesterday
And a love that was lost
A sunset that burned his eyes
They shut tight for the day
A girl he once held close
A moment that slipped away
