  • I was a lonesome cowboy
    Lonesome as I could be
    You came along, changed my life
    And fixed what was broken in me

    I was a lonesome cowboy
    I didn't have a friend
    Now I got friends comin' out of my ears
    I'll never be lonesome again

    You can't be happy when you're all by yourself
    Go on, tell me I'm wrong (you're wrong)
    When someone takes you down from the shelf
    And plays with you some, it's wonderful (wonderful)

    I was a lonesome cowboy
    But not anymore
    I just found out what love is about
    I've never felt this way before

    I was a lonesome cowboy
    But not anymore Writer/s: Randy Newman
    Publisher: Walt Disney Music Company
