  • I throwed and I throwed that old rope
    At that make-believe steer
    I'd never been so frustrated
    In all my nine years
    I was about to give up on that old bail of hay
    When from the front porch I heard my Dad say

    My little cowboy
    You make me so proud, boy
    Don't give up now
    'Cause I know that somehow
    You'll figure it out
    My little cowboy

    I played and I played this old bar
    Trying to make the big time
    I stayed broke which was cool
    Until along came a kid and a wife
    That's when I called up my Dad, I said today is the day
    It's time to put this old guitar away... and he said

    Hold on there, cowboy
    You make me so proud, boy
    Don't give up now
    'Cause I know that somehow
    You'll figure it out
    Yeah, my little cowboy, yeah

    Now I've got a boy of my own
    With his own set of dreams
    He works hard to play quarterback
    For his pee-wee league team
    A blue star on his helmet, our last name on his back
    Three downs in a row, all end with a sack... and I hollered out

    That's my little cowboy
    You make me so proud, boy
    Don't give up now
    'Cause I know that somehow
    You'll throw that touchdown
    Oh, my little cowboy
