Arnold, Eddy - Cowpoke Lyrics




[Moan]
I'm lonesome but happy
Rich but I'm broke
And the good Lord knows the reason
I'm just a cowpoke

From Cheyenne to Douglas
All the ranges I know
'Cause I drift with the wind
No one cares where I go [Moan]

I ain't got a dime
In these old worn out jeans
So I'll stop eatin' steak
And go back to beans

I'll pick up a ten spot
And press God I know
Well, I'm ridin' the broncs
In the big rodeo [Moan]

Some evening in springtime
A felly I'll find
And we might spend all the summer
With her on my mind

But I'll never be branded
And never be broke
I'm a carefree range ridin'
Driftin' cowpoke... [Moan]

    I'm lonesome but happy
    Rich but I'm broke
    And the good Lord knows the reason
    I'm just a cowpoke.
    From Cheyenne to Douglas
    All the ranges I know
    'Cause I drift with the wind
    No one cares where I go. (Ooooh-eee-oooh oooooh)
    I ain't got a dime
    In these old worn out jeans
    So I'll stop eatin' steak
    And go back to beans.
    I'll pick up a ten spot
    And press God I know
    Well, I'm ridin' the broncs
    In the big rodeo. (Ooooooh-eeee-ooooh-we-ooooh)
    Some evening in springtime
    A felly I'll find
    And we might spend all the summer
    With her on my mind.
    But I'll never be branded
    And never be broke
    I'm a carefree range ridin'
    Driftin' cowpoke... (oooooooh-eeeeee-ooooh—-)

    It's Prescott (old cow town in Arizona that's been there since the territory days), not press god, other than that spot on!

    Thanks, love the song. I need an analog source, to avoid these thin digital blues.

    I love all these old songs! I live in the The Crowsnest Pass area of southwestern Alberta and we have a Salvation Army type of store here and the other day I got lucky and I found myself some excellent condition 33 1/3 RPM records: The Best of Eddy Arnold, The Living Legend of Eddy Arnold complete with his 8x10 color picture!, The Last Ride by Hank Snow and Herman's Hermits 1964 or '65 record too haha! Just 5 Bucks for the lot of them. I'll be going back weekly and now I need to find enough old cowboy music 45s to fill my best friend's old Jukebox, a nice task.

    George Loyie, WOW that’s great!!!

    Damn good find. I always cruise in to Regina and check out the Salvation Army in there alongside vintage vinyl. Great stuff to find!

  13. Connie H

    What a voice!!!

  14. ArdRick1

    makes you want to go out west and just drift around

    Trevor

    ArdRick1, If I go anymore west I’ll be in the ocean and I’d rather head south and a little east
