Cowboy On The Run

Album: The Criminal Record (2017)
  • Rivers runnin' through
    Lovin' it with you
    Inspiration comes like the next day
    The next and the next and the next and the next

    Nowhere I couldn't go, no one I wouldn't know
    Freedom was feelin' you
    Way up to the sky you and I
    So secure
    Beauty azure
    Crystal clear

    Til it was gone and the sun that I soaked in
    Just burned I was broken

    How many women
    Have you done and left
    Like you left me?
    I loved you so
    Where did you go?
    What have you done?
    Cowboy on the run

    There you ride with my identity and pride
    I loved how I spent my days

    How many women
    Have you done and left
    Like you left me?
    I loved you so
    Where did you go
    What have you done?
    Cowboy on the run
    Cowboy on the run
    Cowboy on the run
