Eagle's type thing nested in my head today...

"Ride 'Em Cowboy" Copyright 2017 M.Healey

They wanna take your boots
And put 'em on a shelf
A minute past you're gone
They'll be on someone else
It's time for you to go
There's no one on your side
Can't you hear the prairies knockin'
They're callin you to ride

Ride 'em cowboy
Race the wind
You may never get this chance again
Ride 'em cowboy
Lead the breeze
There's no limit-time is on it's knees

You don't need rememberin'
Someone else can do the past
When the hell hound's on your tail
And your future spell's been cast
The present's all you have
Gotta do it on your own
They're gonna leave you in the dust
So saddle up-get go'n

Ride 'em cowboy
Race the wind
You may never get this chance again
Ride 'em cowboy
Lead the breeze
There's no limit-time is on it's knees

He saw a sign that said forever
Got to choose how he would die
We all should be so lucky
When we go for our last ride

Ride 'em cowboy
Race the wind
You may never get this chance again
Ride 'em cowboy
Lead the breeze
There's no limit-time is on it's knees
Ride 'em cowboy
Ride 'em cowboy
Ride 'em cowboy

I think what makes satan so attractive to others is
that he tastes like chocolate...
....and he played real drums

This one reminds me a bit of the urban cowboy days. But he didn't have to wait long for his last ride as that nightlife fad was even shorter-lived than was the disco craze which preceded it. Another way of saying that life's too short to not live it to the fullest.

Hey Travis! Yes, America also. (name that horse!) I've been working on some music for the chorus but it's difficult to sound like a country rock band without the band. LOL. I appreciate your commenting!

Hey Mike,

Great read. This one feels like when country was country before it became pop. Well done.

Peace,

Dave

There was country pop long before the legend has it. Think of Marty Robbins with "El Paso" and some of Patsy Cline's pop oriented material. And the original country-rock act might have been the Everly Brothers. And you can go back even further to the heyday of the likes of Gene Autry and Red Foley. Of course that was before music became so categorized the way it is today.
