My heroes were all cowboys and they still are, it seems
Always in search of and one step behind of
Themselves and their slow moving dreams.

-- Willie Nelson

Cowboys ain't easy to love and they're harder to hold
They'd rather give you a song than diamonds and gold
Lone Star belt buckles and old faded Levi's
Each night begins a new day
If you don't understand him or he don't like you
He'll probably just ride away.

Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys
They're never at home, and they're always alone
Even with someone they love.

-- Waylon Jennings
