​Drugstore Cowboy

This song is by Humble Pie and appears on the album Eat It (1973).

I just came inside, 'Cause there weren't no place to hide
I had no idea Babe, I'd find you here today
Well you can see I was doing fine, Working hard right down the line
Played the holes from Bethnal Green down to LA.

Before you trust me like your brother
There's something in my head I want you to know.

I've been resting, a drugstore cowboy
Higher than a hawk's nest
I was let down by an East End plowboy
Who needed more time to rest, oh
I had to rest and think again.

Well I remember how you tried to explain
(Remember) how you felt the same as me
But you were tied to habit, not a lover. (Remember)
And I guess you came to me 'cause you needed to be free
It's sure good to know girl how we once we loved each other.

But before you take me, before you love me like no other
There's something on my mind I want you to know.

Resting, a drugstore cowboy
Higher than a hawk's nest
Let down by an East End plowboy
Who needed more time to rest
I need more time to think again...

I wanna warn you before you take me for your lover
There's something that if you don't know by now, you ought to know.

Resting, a drugstore cowboy
Higher than a hawk's nest
Let down by an East End plowboy
Who needed more time to rest, oh
And I ..., my darling, and I thought again
Yes I did, oh look out now!
