I Want a Cowboy

Album: Keep On Loving You (2009)
  • Everybody told me he was a dream
    Picture perfect like he stepped right off the silver screen
    Said that he would sweep me off my feet
    But I'm still standing no he didn't do it for me
    'cause I don't go for all that wine and dine
    With the ray ban fake tan never mind

    I want a down home up with the sun rise man
    A pick-up truck driving bull riding strong steady hand
    I want the wranglers stetson and all that stuff
    I want the real McCoy
    I want a cowboy

    I'm tired of talking 'bout it wasting my time
    On all the cheap talkers needing me feeding me lines
    Give me somebody who's tender but tough
    Simple and honest knows a thing or two about love
    I've seen enough to know I know what I like
    It's the hard working head turning rugged type

    I want a down home up with the sun rise man
    A pick-up truck driving bull riding strong steady hand
    I want the wranglers stetson and all that stuff
    I want the real McCoy
    I want a cowboy

    I've seen enough to know you know what I mean
    Ride me off into the sunset that's my thing

    I want a down home up with the sun rise man
    A pick-up truck driving bull riding strong steady hand
    I want the wranglers stetson and all that stuff
    I want the real McCoy
    I want the real McCoy
    I want a cowboy
    I want a cowboy a cowboy Writer/s: KATRINA ELAM, WAYNE KIRKPATRICK, JIMMIE LEE SLOAS
