Ain't Always the Cowboy

Album: Heartache Medication (2019)
  • Her hands wrapped up in mine
    Tears rollin' out of her eyes
    No messin' with a made-up mind
    Sun settin' on goodbye
    Yeah, it's hard to believe
    It wasn't me tryna leave this time

    It ain't always the cowboy
    That ain't got a lot of hang around
    Ain't got no settle down in their boots
    Gone's just what they do
    That restless runnin'
    Searchin' for somethin'
    Leavin' love in the dust of a midnight Chevrolet
    It ain't always the cowboy that rides away

    I've never seen over from this side
    Never heard lonely get this quiet
    Still, I can't keep from smiling
    'Cause damn, that girl can fly

    It ain't always the cowboy
    That ain't got a lot of hang around
    Ain't got no settle down in their boots
    Gone's just what they do
    That restless runnin'
    Searchin' for somethin'
    Leavin' love in the dust of a midnight Chevrolet
    It ain't always the cowboy that rides away

    A tumbleweed heart chasin' that wind
    Goin' too far, wherever that is

    It ain't always the cowboy
    That ain't got a lot of hang around
    Ain't got no settle down in their boots
    Gone's just what they do
    That restless runnin'
    Searchin' for somethin'
    Leavin' love in the dust of a midnight Chevrolet
    It ain't always the cowboy that rides away
    Rides away
