Cowboy Up

This song is by Chris LeDoux and appears on the album After the Storm (2002).

I was a new kid on the circuit, gold buckles in my eyes
But the horse I drew was plenty rank and much to my surprise
I did a double back flip and landed on my head
This old cowboy limped out in the arena leaned over me and said

You gotta cowboy up when you get throwed down
Get right back in the saddle as soon as you hit the ground
You've heard that the tough get goin' when the goin' gets tough
Around here what we say is, boy, you better cowboy up

By the end of my last season they said I was among the best
So I proudly called a girl back home hopin' she would be impressed
But her momma said she married a guy that I used to call my friend
But before the first tear could fall these words came back again

You gotta cowboy up when you get throwed down
You get right back in the saddle as soon as you hit the ground
You've heard that the tough get goin' when the goin' gets tough
Around here what we say is, boy, you better cowboy up

Well, it's not an easy lesson to learn in life and love
But it's the only way to go whenever you bite the dust

You gotta cowboy up when you get throwed down
Get right back in the saddle as soon as you hit the ground
You've heard that the tough get goin' when the goin' gets tough
Around here what we say is, boy, you better cowboy up
Around here what we say is, boy, you better cowboy up
