Cowboys From Hell

Album: Cowboys From Hell (1990)
  • Under the lights where we stand tall
    Nobody touches us at all
    Showdown, shootout, spread fear within, without
    We're gonna take what's ours to have
    Spread the word throughout the land
    They say the bad guys wear black
    We're tagged and can't turn back

    You see us comin'
    And you all together run for cover
    We're takin' over this town

    Here we come, reach for your gun
    And you better listen well my friend, you see
    It's been slow down below,
    Aimed at you, we're the cowboys from hell
    Deed is done again, we've won
    Ain't talking no tall tales friend
    Cause high noon, your doom
    Comin' for you we're the cowboys from hell

    Pillage the village, trash the scene
    But better not take it out on me
    Cause a ghost town is found
    Where your city used to be
    So out of the darkness and into the light
    Sparks fly everywhere in sight
    From my double barrel, twelve gauge,
    Can't lock me in your cage

    You see us comin'
    And you all together run for cover
    We're takin' over this town

    Here we come, reach for your gun
    And you better listen well my friend, you see
    It's been slow down below,
    Aimed at you, we're the cowboys from hell
    Deed is done again, we've won
    Ain't talking no tall tales friend
    Cause high noon, your doom
    Comin' for you we're the cowboys from hell

    Here we come, reach for your gun
    And you better listen well my friend, you see
    It's been slow down below,
    Aimed at you, we're the cowboys from hell
    Deed is done again, we've won
    Ain't talking no tall tales friend
    Cause high noon, your doom
    Comin' for you we're the cowboys from hell
    Step aside, we're the cowboys from hell Writer/s: DARRELL LANCE ABBOTT, PHILIP ANSELMO, PHILIP HANSEN ANSELMO, REX BROWN, REX ROBERT BROWN, VINCENT PAUL ABBOTT

RIP Dime, and hopefully that rumor about the Pantera Reunion, with Zakk filling in for Dime will come true. No one else can touch what Dime can do. Great guy, amazing guitarist, legendary band.
  • Dave from Beamsville, CanadaI love playing this song in "Guitar Hero" for the Playstation 2! If I could only play it as well on an actual guitar....RIP Dimebag
  • Todd from Brisbane, AustraliaThis is probly one of the best songs i've ever heard. Pantera are probly one of, if not the most underated band(of all time) and im using this song in class for my english assighment.

  • Eric from Wichita, KsThis song came into my life when a very very close relative and mentor passed away. This song made me think of that person. This song holds a near and dear part of my heart....."When she died I couln't cry, the pride within my soul. you left me incomplete. memories now unfold...Through all those Complex years. I thought I was alone I didn't care to look around and make this world my own and when she died. I should've cried and spared myself some pain...Left me incomplete
    All alone as the memories still remain." No lie, I didn't cry at the service but as much as she meant to me I should have. Speaks to my heart. RIP Dimebag, Pantera KICKS ASS!!!!!
