  • Well the boys round here ain't like the boys back home
    They don't plant the fields they don't work the farms
    The boys round here well they talk to fast
    But when the times get hard, no they won't last

    Cocaine cowboys, they're bad in the saddle
    But they're coming from New York, LA and Seattle
    They're all hat, they don't rope no cattle, they don't ride no bulls
    They're cocaine cowboys, they never get sleep
    With their bloodshot eyes and their cigarette teeth
    And I wish that someone warned me, stay away from them cocaine cowboys

    Well they're riding the rails right before the show
    Better call up James when the bag gets low
    But the crowd thins out the longer they play
    You can't write a song without nothin to say

    Cocaine cowboys, they're bad in the saddle
    But they're coming from New York, LA and Seattle
    They're all hat, they don't rope no cattle, they don't ride no bulls
    They're cocaine cowboys, they never get sleep
    They're out in the bars and up grinding their teeth
    And I wish that someone warned me, stay away from them cocaine cowboys Writer/s: Margo Price
