That Girl Is A Cowboy

Album: The Lost Sessions (2006)
  • In the Garth Brooks 6 CD set, Brooks said of this song: "I was on the road when I got a call from a buddy of mine, telling me my horse, Cracker Jack, had died. This was the first horse all 3 of my girls rode and the last horse my mother had ridden... a true friend. I tried like hell to find a way to get back home to bury him that evening, but I couldn't get there until the next morning. As I pulled up in the pasture where Cracker Jack laid, I realized my buddy had built a campfire and had slept next to Cracker Jack all night with a 30/30 to keep the coyotes off him. Where I'm from, when someone does something extraordinary for someone else, we call him a cowboy. Well in this case, my buddy was a cowgirl friend of mine named Tami. I guess it just goes to show you... 'sometimes the best cowboys ain't cowboys at all.'" >>
