And Cowboy Is His Name

Luke Reed, Brice Long

    Lyrics »

He rode north out of Texas
To an uncharted land
Lookin' for a place
To make his way
With his saddle and his bedroll and a dream in his
He started a legend still livin' today

With a hat made by Stetson, spurs n' high heeled boots
Through the years not that much has changed
He never meant to be a hero, it just turned out that
He's still around and cowboy is his name

He's what all the little fellows want to grow up to be
And what women think they can domesticate
He's at home on the range and alone in a crowd
Feels he was born a hundred years too late
What he does he doesn't do for the fortune or the fame
It's a way of life cause cowboy is his name

He's been wrote about in poetry and sung about in
Talked about in Houston and Cheyenne
You might see him at the stockyard or the local rodeo
But most days he's out makin' a hand

He doesn't measure worth in money or a fancy house in
He's happy with his life out on the plains
He's a friend you can depend on in show and sleet and
He takes pride in known' cowboy is his name


He's still out there somewhere, ridin' on the range
He takes pride in knowin' cowboy is his name
