The Cowboy in Me

Album: Set This Circus Down (2001)
Charted: 33
  • I don't know why I act the way I do
    Like I ain't got a single thing to lose
    Sometimes I'm my own worst enemy
    I guess that's just the cowboy in me

    I got a life that most would love to have
    But sometimes I still wake up fightin' mad
    At where this road I'm heading down might lead
    I guess that's just the cowboy in me

    The urge to run, the restlessness
    The heart of stone I sometimes get
    The things I've done for foolish pride
    The me that's never satisfied
    The face that's in the mirror when I don't like what I see
    I guess that's just the cowboy in me

    The urge to run, the restlessness
    The heart of stone I sometimes get
    The things I've done for foolish pride
    The me that's never satisfied
    The face that's in the mirror when I don't like what I see
    I guess that's just the cowboy in me

    Girl, I know there's times you must have thought
    There ain't a line you've drawn I haven't crossed
    But you set your mind to see this love on through
    I guess that's just the cowboy in you

    We ride and never worry about the fall
    I guess that's just the cowboy in us all Writer/s: Al Anderson, Craig Michael Wiseman, Jeffrey Steele
