Cowboy Song by Thin Lizzy

Album: JailbreakReleased: 1976Charted:
77
  • "Cowboy Song" is described by Phil Lynott biographer Mark Putterford as "a cross between Clint Eastwood and Rudolph Valentino, with a bit of George Best thrown in for good measure. Philip strode into the sunset of his own imagination and always, of course, lived to fight another day."
    It was also, he says, "one of Lizzy's most effortlessly seductive rockers to date".
  • Though the song is strong lyrically, bass player and writer Lynott was never afraid to allow the axemen to dominate a track, and it features some typically blistering Lizzy soloing. "Cowboy Song" was released on the Mercury label in 1976 backed by "Angel From The Coast". (thanks, Alexander Baron - London, England, for above 2)
