JOHN DENVER lyrics - Farewell Andromeda

I'd Rather Be A Cowboy

Original and similar lyrics
(Lady's Chains) Jessie went away last summer, a couple of months ago. After all our time together, it was hard to see her go. She called me right up when she arrived, asked me one more time to come, but living on an LA freeway ain't my kind of having fun. I think I'd rather be a cowboy, I think I'd rather ride the range. I think I'd rather be a cowboy than to lay me down in love and lady's chains. When we were just beginning, it was such an easy way. Laying back up in the mountains making love for sunny days. She got tired of picking daisies and cooking my meals for me, she can live the life she wants to, yes, it's all right with me. I think I'd rather be a cowboy, I think I'd rather ride the range. I think I'd rather be a cowboy than to lay me down in love and lady's chains. I'd rather live on the side of a mountain than wander through canyons of concrete and steel. I'd rather laugh in the rain and sunshine and lay down my sundown in some starry field. Oh, but I miss her in the morning when I awake alone. The absence of her laughter is a cold and empty sound. But her memory always makes me smile and I want you to know, I love her, yes I love her just enough to let her go. I think I'd rather be a cowboy, I think I'd rather ride the range. I think I'd rather be a cowboy than to lay me down in love and lady's chains. I think I'd rather be a cowboy, I think I'd rather ride the range. I think I'd rather be a cowboy than to lay me down in love and lady's chains.

If I Knew Then

CHER "Foxy Lady"
The funny-face kid from down the street Always very close at hand He was just a cowboy, I was Lady Gran But I don't think I would have shot him down If I knew then what I know now High school days and puppy love Learning what it's all about He was kinda akward, I was filling out But I don't think that I would have played around If I knew then what I know now Too many years, too many chairs Too many other things, too many men Time and again I had to test my wings No time for love, strings or wedding rings A pretty young girl from Baltimore Got herself a real good man Once he was a cowboy who wanted Lady Gran And I know that I would have made that now If I knew then what I know now Once he was a cowboy who wanted Lady Gran And I know that I would have made that vow If I knew then what I know now

The Cowboy Who Started The Fight

JOHNNY CASH "Rockabilly Blues"
The legs on the lady a walkin' Was tanned to a dark berry brown. Her body was made like a song to be played To the tune of a million a pound. She was a wonder of a woman I reckon And she's who screwed her head on right. The toast of the world was a long legged girl And the cowboy who started the fight. He'd just pulled into town in an old green 1953 Chevrlet pickup truck with whiskey bumbs all over it and the right front fender falling off. He coasted on into a no parking zone, got out and took the keys and chunked 'em down a gutter, turned around and just walked off. He allowed how his time had been wasted On drinking and running around. He spend half his life searchin' barrooms at night For the sweetheart that he never found. It was plain from the moment their eyes met, They'd wind up in each others arms. The lady's young life was laid open that night And the cowboy drank deep from of her charms. Singing hey-h-ide-he from the depths of the sea To the mountains so hollering high. "I've found the best one under God's given sun." Yeah the cowboy got lucky tonight. While the angel beside him lay sleeping He silently thanked God above For being a kind hearted father And blessing his life with her love. For one night of love with that woman Was more than he knew he deserved. So he found all he had left worth givin' And he gave all he had left for her. He slid back inside his ole Levi's And filled up his boots with his feet While the subways beneath New York City Screamed through the veins of the street. For the lady gave up without question The trophy she saved all her life. Then she curled up beside His old weather worn hide And the cowboy just laid down and died. Hey-hi-de-he when a whoop through the street As his soul slowly winged out of sight. The lady was torn from the child bein' born And the cowboy found heaven that night. The lady was torn from the child bein' born And the cowboy found heaven that night.

Rodeo Hand

JOHNNY CASH "Sings The Ballads Of The True West"
He's a rodeo hand a dyin' breed driftin' like a tumble weed Rollin' where the urge tells him to go And all this cowboy really needs is a tank of gas and entry fees To get him to the next big rodeo Now most athletes take alfalfa pills and super B's A cowboy don't need all that motern stuff A cowboy's gotta be lean and mean he trains on caffine and nicotine And them all night drives help to make him tough He's underfed and under paid and too damn hungry to be afraid Some where between the crazy and insane Cowboys ain't afraid pf dyin' shoot he'd even ride a red eyed Lion If you'd show him where to take the rein Now the only coach a cowboy needs is a growlin' gut that says come on let's eat So tonight cowboy you better make a winning ride Bout the only thing that makes him go Is that big gold buckle waitin' down the road And a bad case of too much cowboy pride

So You Want To Be A Cowboy Singer

WAYLON JENNINGS "Waylon And Company"
[Tony:] City light are shining like diamonds Coming from the southwestern lows Big jet engines screaming like ten thousand horses Another town, another show. [Waylon:] I don't talk about the women that I've known from time to time You know that I just can't be alone You know there's no one waiting for me anywhere That I love, like I love the one at home, love the one at home. [Chorus:] So you want to be a cowboy singer It can make you rich or make you poor Just turn it loose, let it out, and hook em' down the road There's always room for one more. [Waylon & Tony:] Sometimes when I look into the mirror I can see that I've been crazy now and then The lines on my face won't tell you where I'm going But it sure as hell can tell you where I've been. [Chorus:] So you want to be a cowboy singer Pick them ol' guitars every night If you're ever down around Corpus Christi Texas Be sure to tell them all, I said, ''Hi.'' "tell 'em me an' ol' Waylon said hi.''...

Little Lady

Roy Harper
I once held a lantern of love in my hands She was all I could see Kicking the brown leaves of childhoold around us We danced the deep sea That welled from the spring of the boy that I was Held in her flame Feeling her learning Watching her burning To see the first man I became Little lady Who made me Was it you Or is it that old unforgiveness That I can't forget I was her warchild and she was my wildcat We lived in a dream Broke up for summer unfolding the secret And woke up downstream Facing the current that said that we couldn't Go on Tearing the seed out With sharp tongues And no doubt Before it was born Little lady, etc Sometimes I cry in the flood of my guts Laughing in sadness Bursting with rage in the wounds of revenge Bleeding forgiveness It isn't you love or anything new I just tasted It's myself standing Standing watching me, Getting hung up Spaced and wasted Little lady, etc
