Where have all the Cowboys gone – Part 2

While the Cowboy may not be gone, they are disappearing in large numbers.Cowboy

Have we set our expectations too high? I love this song, sung by Paula Cole, titled “Where have all the Cowboys gone?” The lyrics, while simple enough really define the times. To hear the song in its entirety, click on the link. 

Oh you get me ready in your 56 chevy
Why don’t we go sit down in the shade
Take shelter on my front porch
The dandy lion sun scorching,
Like a glass of cold lemonade
I will do laundry if you pay all the bills

CHORUS:
Where is my John Wayne
Where is my prairie song
Where is my happy ending
Where have all the cowboys gone

Why don’t you stay the evening
Kick back and watch the TV
And I’ll fix a little something to eat
Oh I know your back hurts from working on the tractor
How do you take your coffee my sweet
I will raise the children if you pay all the bills

I am wearing my new dress tonight
But you don’t, but you don’t even notice me.

I will wash the dishes while you go have a beer
Where is my Marlboro man
Where is his shiny gun
Where is my lonely ranger
Where have all the cowboys gone
Yippee yo, yippee yeah
