Lyrics

Born Cowboy

Written By: Andy Rice

When I was a young boy I rode a stick horse
Put on my daddy’s boots and rode right out the back door
A black felt hat with a feather in the side
On that old broomstick is where I learned to ride

Don’t wanna go to heaven in no three piece suit
Just put me in some Wranglers and a pair of cowboy boots
Lay my hat beside me there before you close the lid
Cause I was born a cowboy and that don’t change cause I’m dead

I raised up right a set of reins in my hand
Ring in my pocket from an old snuff can
A buckle I won in some podunk town
You know I owe my life to that rodeo clown

Don’t wanna go to heaven in no three piece suit
Just put me in some Wranglers and a pair of cowboy boots
Lay my hat beside me there before you close the lid
Cause I was born a cowboy and that don’t change cause I’m dead

I’ve picked up a bible once or twice in my life
I know there will be a big ranch in the sky
Cause in Revelations death rides a pale horse
Who better to break him, but a cowboy of course

Don’t wanna go to heaven in no three piece suit
Just put me in some Wranglers and a pair of cowboy boots
Lay my hat beside me there before you close the lid
Cause I was born a cowboy and that don’t change cause I’m dead

Yes, I was born a cowboy and that don’t change cause I’m dead
