Lyrics

Cowboy Up

Written By: Dave Greer

Cowboy Up ® Dave Greer (2005)

E A E
1. His old man said he was crazy, plumb out of his mind.
E A B7
To be a cow puncher, at fourteen he gave it a try.
E A
The wide open spaces, so many places.
E B7
He’d be a cowboy all of his life.

2. From one outfit to another, he drifted alone.

Where he’s hang his hat, was where he’d call home.

The wind in the cedars and tumble weed fever.

Some day he’d have a place of his own.

Chorus
A E
Sometimes you need to cowboy up.
A E
Hold on to something new
A E
Take a look inside yourself.
B7 E
For that bit a cowboy in you.

3. Found work in the fall for an honest man.

To hold up for the winter months.

The old man asked have you got any sand.

Don’t want you turn’n tail and run.

Hunt down the rustlers, men that couldn’t be trusted.

He faught when the fight’n had to be done.

Chorus

Sometimes you need to cowboy up.

Hold on to something new

Take a look inside yourself.

For that bit a cowboy in you.

Bm A E
He can see her standing there.
Bm A E
No one should be alone.
Bm A E
A wild Mustang never settles down.
Bm A B7
She needs her man to come home

Chorus

Sometimes you need to cowboy up.

Hold on to something new

Take a look inside yourself.

For that bit a cowboy in you.

Chorus

Sometimes you need to cowboy up.

Hold on to something new

Take a look inside yourself.

For that bit a cowboy in you.

For that bit a cowboy in you.
