Aaron Watson – Long Live Cowboys Lyrics

Long Live Cowboys Lyrics – Aaron Watson

While the world keeps changing he won’t budge an inch
He’d ride lightening and never even flinch
He tips his hat to the ladies and the legends too
Skoal ring on his pocket just like Chris LeDoux
He loves whiskey and rolling smokes
Campfires, songs and old man jokes

Long live cowboys, chasing gold buckle dreams
Pearl snap shirts and old faded blue jeans
Real life cowboys who weather the wind and the rain
Like desperados waiting on a train
Those honky tonk heroes and their six string guitars
Outlaw troubadours beneath those neon stars
Long live cowboys

Well, listen up girl your mama learned first hand
The reason they don’t call him a cowman
He’s a cowboy, he won’t always save the day
He’ll ride off into the sunset even when he should stay
The same thing that stole your heart
Is the same dang thing that’s gonna tear it apart

Long live cowboys, chasing gold buckle dreams
Pearl snap shirts and old faded blue jeans
Real life cowboys who weather the wind and the rain
Like desperados waiting on a train
Those honky tonk heroes and their six string guitars
Outlaw troubadours beneath those neon stars
Long live cowboys
Modern day, real life, cowboys

Naw, he’ll never settle down, you can’t tame his soul
He was just born a hundred years too slow

Long live cowboys, chasing gold buckle dreams
Pearl snap shirts and old faded blue jeans
Real life cowboys who weather the wind and the rain
Like desperados waiting on a train
Those honky tonk heroes and their six string guitars
Outlaw troubadours beneath those neon stars
Long live cowboys
Yeah, long live cowboys
