Marcus King Band, The - This Ol' Cowboy Lyrics




Well I'm sittin' down in San Anton'
Waiting on an eight o'clock train
My woman left me here last night
Things ain't been quite the same

I gotta get back to Dallas
And tie up a few loose ends
I'm gonna work a week make a hundred dollars
Aw and hit the road again

So I don't want you to think
That you're the first one
To leave me out here on my own
Cause this ain't gonna be the first time
This ol' cowboy spent the night alone

Now honey I've been a fool but a bigger fool
I can't remember when I've been
Just to open up my heart
And let you walk right in

Now there's one thing in this life
Ain't hard for me to do
That's as soon as I kiss the lips of another woman
I'm gonna forget all about you

So I don't want you to think
That you're the first one
To leave me out here on my own
Cause this ain't gonna be the first time
This ol' cowboy spent the night alone

If you wrote down all the woman's names I knew
And let me pick one out
Wouldn't be one in the whole bunch
I'd give a hoot about

I don't want you to think
That you're the first one
Leave me out here on my own
Cause this ain't gonna be the first time
This ol' cowboy spent the night alone

I don't want you to think
That you're the first one
Leave me out here on my own
Cause this ain't gonna be the first time
This ol' cowboy spent the night alone

    Have you seen our latest session with The Marcus King Band? https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL2WI4mMDDI__XfT3HXNngOe8lybXpYF7b

  14. Joachim Kane

    Little known fact: Jammin' Joe Kane is playin' guitar on this one. OK. Not exactly true... but I've listened to this and the original about 19,876 times. Truth … And bein' a good Christian, I probably wouldn't sell my soul to play with this execution and soul, but I am FUCKING TEMPTED!

  15. eric blaich

    So Good, So much feel from this new Blues Master ! Superb Voice and even better guitar chops ! Onwards and Upwards Marcus

  16. Dave Martin

    Outstanding Marcus how cool it is to have a horn section and unbelievable band at age 22!

    Charles Lowery

    Have loved the Marshall Tucker Band ever since I first heard them back in the early 70's. Marcus and the band nailed this one. I think that it's better than the original.

  17. David Glass

    Did justice to what was already a great song and could have screwed up but they nailed it

  18. walkalittle

    Perfect!!

  19. Benita Pretti

    They simply keep shiny and bright each daybreak.
    So glad to be part of this sound comin in the realm.
    Y’all keep it up!

  20. Johnny Morris

    Man, they killed it! Very few covers are better than the original, but this comes close! That's coming from a huge Marshall Tucker fan!

    Pagano

    I’m not hating on it I think it’s awesome they covered it. They did a good job but they could try this one all day long and they won’t come close. We’ve all got opinions mine just differs from yours.

    Jeremiah Rogers

    @Pagano I actually thanked you for expanding my musical horizons:)

    RCCrawling And More

    @Pagano well at least old bands are getting credited for pioneering such amazing sound! Like the cover band Grateful Shred, good cover band, possibly the best Grateful dead cover band, but not a match for any of the original members

    Trac3y

    i think the horns take it to another level...

    Trac3y

    @Jeremiah Rogers that's what i love about youtube and all the other sites you can find music on the internet... i have discovered more music just sitting here key stroking finding jewel after jewel .....

  21. Hearsticles

    Oh man, what a great cover.

  22. Priscilla Ann Kinkle
