Allison Ponthier – Cowboy Lyrics

Cowboy Lyrics – Allison Ponthier

It took New York to make me a cowboy
Now everybody knows
Even if I change my clothes

Familiar but strange
Like an android
But from every gaping hole
A new garden fully grows from me

I wasn’t ready, I wasn’t ready
I had a foot in my mouth
I saw the cutters through barbed wire
I didn’t know I could come out

Undoing the weaving of the old roots
My greatest enemy
Took up residence in me

Feel like a criminal with no history
Running from the law
Though I really loved them all

I wasn’t ready, I wasn’t ready
I had a foot in my mouth
Saw the cutters through barbed wire
I didn’t know I could come out

I wasn’t ready, I wasn’t ready
I had a foot in my mouth
I know her everything by memory
I’m just a girl from the south

Born from the beige
These feelings made me feel strange
A neon sign
Not the only one of my kind

It took New York to make me a cowboy
Now everybody knows
Even if I change my clothes

Familiar but strange
Like an android
But from every gaping hole
A new garden fully grows

Born from the beige
These feelings made me feel strange
A neon sign
Not the only one of my kind

This is how I felt
In the Bible Belt
Want to be that girl
For someone else
