The lonesomest cowboy in the West
(dalla serie Tv "Lucky Luke")
Of all the lonesome cowboys in the
I figure I've gotta be the lonesomest.
I want to ride the range where there's lots of elbow
feel the wind blow free and smell the sagebrush
Gotta be on my ownsome, singing my lonesome cowboy
I'm the lonesomest cowboy that I know,
but when it comes to courtin' and such I move real
Met a purdy gal itchin' to get hitched the other day
my horse got so upset we rode the other way.
I've gotta be on my ownsome, singing my lonesome
Some folks think it's Heaven in a hotel
with their puffed up pillows and their quilts piled high.
well I don't hanker for no hotel:
just wanna kick my boots off
by the campfire's glow
while the lonely coyotes cry.
Well my bed is my horse and saddle
and my blanket is the sky.
Of all the lonesome cowboys in the west
As far as I can see I'm still the lonesomest.
Beneath the prairie stars I'm gonna drift and dream
I never find what I'm looking for, but then I might,
so let me be on my ownsome, singing my lonesome cowboy blues;
just living the life I choose
singing my lonesome cowboy blues
di Arlo Guthrie
