​The Young Vaqueros

This song is by Kevin Johnson and appears on the album Night Rider (1980).

Leaving London was a pity
Leaving Paris was a shame
Still Australia could be pretty
And the chance of new surroundings Was a chance to start again

San Francisco held the answers
Then the answers live in Spain
Now you say we'll go to Texas
In the great wide open spaces
We may find ourselves again

Like a couple of young vaqueros
With a couple of big sombreros
We will ride through the day like tomorrow will never come
On our painted pintos
Going where the wind blows
You and I and the setting sun with our hearts on fire
With our wild desires
Will our Texas life lift us higher and higher
Who lives for reason
Who lives forever
Who looks for things to stay the same when they may never
As long as you go
Then I guess we all know
That I'll be there
Amigo

Distant hills are always greener
Somewhere else won't be the same
Girl I know we're only dreamers
And the chance of new surroundings
Is the chance to dream again

Like a couple of young vaqueros
With a couple of big sombreros
We will ride through the day like tomorrow will never come
On our painted pintos
Going where the wind blows
You and I and the setting sun with our hearts on fire
With our wild desires
Will our Texas life lift us higher and higher
Who lives for reason
Who lives forever
Who looks for things to stay the same when they may never
As longs as you go
Then I guess we all know
That I'll be there
Amigo
