TOBY KEITH lyrics - I Should've Been A Cowboy

TOBY KEITH
"I Should've Been A Cowboy"

I bet you've never heard ol' Marshall Dillion say
"Miss Kitty have you ever thought of running away
Settling down, would you marry me?
If I asked you twice and begged you pretty please"

She'd have said yes in a New York minute
They never tied the knot, his heart wasn't in it
He just stole a kiss as he rode away
He never hung his hat up at Kitty's place

I should've been a cowboy
I should've learned to rope and ride
Wearing my six-shooter
Riding my pony on a cattle drive

Stealing the young girl's hearts
Just like Gene and Roy
Singing those campfire songs
Oh, I should've been a cowboy

I might of had a sidekick with a funny name
Running wild through the hills chasing Jesse James
Ending up on the brink of danger
Riding shotgun for the Texas Rangers

Go west young man, haven't you been told
California's full of whiskey, women and gold
Sleeping out all night beneath the desert stars
With a dream in my eye and a prayer in my heart

I should've been a cowboy
I should've learned to rope and ride
Wearing my six-shooter
Riding my pony on a cattle drive

Stealing the young girl's hearts
Just like Gene and Roy
Singing those campfire songs
Oh, I should've been a cowboy

I should've been a cowboy
I should've learned to rope and ride
I'd be wearing my six-shooter
Riding my pony on a cattle drive

Stealing the young girl's hearts
Just like Gene and Roy
Singing those campfire songs

Oh, I should've been a cowboy
Yeah, I should've been a cowboy
Yeah, I should've been a cowboy
