Story Behind The Song

Sometime you get to feeling a little rundown. Such was the case when I picked up my guitar and set to writing this here tune.

Song Description

The Cowboys greatness has faded. He's been replaced by the "cowboys" of our times, the space cowboys, and super heros.

Song Length 2:53 Genre Country - Traditional, Folk - Country
Tempo Medium Slow (91 - 110) Lead Vocal Male Vocal
Subject Age, Aging, Rodeo


I'm Just a Rundown Cowboy
A long Shadow in a sunset town boys
Feeling lower than the dirt
on the over-sized shoes of
a rodeo clown boys

Just a rundown cowboy
ain't got no horse oh
to get around boys
ain't got no gun...
I'm just a rundown cowboy


I was the best
I won the west
but that was then
there's nothing left
but memories

I've been replaced
by men from space
Super HEros
3D games

And I'm a rundown COwboy
I'll take the bus
if you run me out of town boys
I was once so much more
Something children did adore
but now I'm just
rundown cowboy
a rundown cowboy

etc. el fin.
