Lonesome Rodeo Cowboy

This song is by George Strait and appears on the album Livin' It Up (1990).

I own this horse and saddle
And that ole Cadillac
This broken down horse trailer
And the clothes that are on my back
I know that it ain't, a hell of a lot.
But it's all that I can show,
For 17 yrs makin my livin' ridin the rodeo.

My wife left me 5 yrs ago
In one of them rodeo towns
I c-ain't say that I blame her much,
She just wanted to settle down.
Oh God how I miss that woman
And it hurt so to see her go.
But if I was smart I woulda stuck by her
But I'm hooked on this rodeo.

Now I'm just a Lonesome Cowboy
I'm a little bit over the hill.
I shoulda quit this thing a long time ago
But I guess I never will
So I keep on movin from show to show trying to
change my luck.
My good ole days are all a memory
But I just can't give it up.

There was a time I used to do alright
And bring home my share a dough
But now I'm losin out to the younger boys
I guess I must be gettin slow.
If there's one thing you learn from this,
You gotta make it on your own.
Cause when your on top you got a million friends
But when your down Buddy your all alone.

Now I'm just a Lonesome Cowboy
I'm a little bit over the hill
I should quit this thing a long time ago
But I guess I never will.
So I keep on movin from show to show trying to
change my luck.
But I just c-ain't give it up.
My good ole days are all a memory but I just c-ain't give it up.
