My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys
Willie Nelson

Lyrics

I grew up a-dreamin' of bein' a cowboy,
and lovin' the cowboy ways.
Pursuin' the life of my high-ridin' heroes,
I burned up my childhood days.
I learned all the rules of the modern day drifter,
don't you hold on to nothin' too long.
Just take what you need from the ladies, then leave them
with the words of a sad country song.
My heroes have always been cowboys, and they still are, it seems.
Sadly in search of, but one step in back of
themselves and their slow-movin' dreams.
Cowboys are special with their own brand of misery
from bein' alone too long.
You could die from the cold in the arms of a nightmare,
knowin' well that you're best days are gone.
Pickin' up hookers instead of my pen,
I let the words of my years fade away.
Old worn-out saddles, and old worn-out memories,
with no one and no place to stay.
My heroes have always been cowboys, and they still are, it seems.
Sadly in search of, but one step in back of
themselves and their slow-movin' dreams.
Sadly in search of, but one step in back of
themselves and their slow-movin' dreams.
