All Around Cowboy Of 1964

This song is by Buck Owens and appears on the album 41st Street Lonely Hearts Club (1975).

Folks used to think that I could ride
Any bronc or bull alive
Maybe in my younger days I could
But now I'm slowin' down a bit
Friends tell me that I should quit
And if I didn't love it so, I would

I recall when folks thought I was great
And all the riders used to hate
To see my name upon the entry door
'Cause I could ride and I could rope
The others seem they have no hope
A-lookin' at a buckle that I wore

It's that all around cowboy of nineteen sixty four
Long days and lucky breaks have me alone
Workin' hard and ridin' fast and sleepin' in the cold
Made me all around cowboy of nineteen sixty four

Folks don't seem to realize
The thrill I get from every ride
That bronc feels like you're dynamite to me
Scratched and bruised, my body aches
From day to day, to use its takes
Lord only knows the way that sets me free

Now my days have shortened up
I'm out of breaks and out of luck
And things will never be the same old way
As I look back and shed a tear
Sometimes I can almost hear
The echo of the judges, they would say

You're the all around cowboy of nineteen sixty four
Long days and lucky breaks have me alone
Workin' hard and ridin' fast and sleepin' in the cold
Made me all around cowboy of nineteen sixty four

Yes, I'm the all around cowboy of nineteen sixty four
