Strait, George - Cowboys Like Us Lyrics

I take off time to time
With those crazy friends of mine
Head out on steel horses
With wheels and we ride

We burn up that road to old Mexico
Blend in with the desert
Just we amigos
And we roll

Cowboys like us sure do have fun
Racin' the wind, chasin' the sun
Take the long way around back to square one
Today we're just outlaws out on the run
There'll be no regrets, no worries and such
For cowboys like us

We talk about livin', babies, and women
All that we've lost and all we've been givin'
We sing about true love, lie about things we ain't done
Drink one more cold one, come mornin' get up
And we roll

[Chorus 2x]

Cowboys like us

    I originally wrote this comment on another older country video, but I'm going to paste it here. As I said, it was written by me, so it's not like I'm stealing someone else's comment. Original comment below:It just sucks because this isn't even a very old song, but it was back when country music was actually COUNTRY music. I'd give just about anything for somebody to revive country music the way George Strait did back in the day with his song "Unwound" that made him a household name. Those of you who are old enough to remember know exactly what I'm talking about. Nashville had turned into "urban cowboy" crap right before George came along and took it back to where it belonged. He opened the flood gates for guys like Keith Whitley, Alan Jackson, Randy Travis, Clint Black, and even Garth was actually country back when he first came onto the scene.

    George Strait even helped revive the careers of a lot of the older guys who had been doing since way before he came along. He sent a message to Nashville that he was going to do things his way, and he kept his word and stuck to his guns. Because of him, we have guys like Tracy Lawrence, Doug Stone, Toby Keith (not that his songs have been COUNTRY in a long time, but he was at first), Brooks and Dunn, Montgomery Gentry, Brad Paisley (before he turned into a Hollywood liberal), Gary Allen, Mark Chesnutt, Tim McGraw (before he turned into an anti-gun liberal and pop cross-over "artist"), Lonestar, and just about every other great artist from the 80s and 90s.

    I know I'm not alone in my love of REAL COUNTRY music because I read it in the comments section of all the older stuff. But it's going to take an all-out boycott of the crap they're passing off as "country" music today before the record label execs in Nashville will listen to us. All they care about is money. If people will continue to buy the "music" of these wannabe country stars (we all know they're nothing but pop) and continue buying tickets to their concerts, Nashville has no incentive to reevaluate their standards. I literally haven't listened to "country" radio in well over 10 years. Not a single time. But I know who the so called "country stars" of today's crap are because my friends and family are always trying to convince me that one of these pop stars is actually legit. I don't care whose feelings get hurt when I say that Chris Stapleton is NOT country. He's an extremely talented guy. I actually even like his music (sometimes). But he's a blues guy. Plain and simple. And he's the one guy that I hear the most about being a legitimate "country" singer. George Jones rolls over in his grave every single time Tennessee Whiskey is played on "country" radio.

    By the way, I don't care who agrees with me. So save yourself some time and don't bother arguing your opinion. If I think there's any validity to what you're saying, we can have a debate over what constitutes REAL COUNTRY music. If not, I will simply ignore you. Oh yeah, I would also like to point out that guys like Eric Church and Cole Swindell are not country music stars. Growing up "in the country" and wearing cowboy boots does not make a man a country music singer. Cole's song about his dad is a very sad (and actually pretty good) song. But you have to look at a singer's full body of work before you can say they belong in a particular genre. Any singer that uses "snap tracks" as the percussion in their songs is NOT a country singer. Again, feel free to disagree. Just know that I don't care about the opinion of someone who thinks today's pop stars are country singers. I'll step down from my soapbox now.

  30. Gerald Otonchi

    i have never been to texas or tennesee but the country music this persons sing is soooo graet

  31. Tim Strickland

    George is the pimping cowboy. .real country.

  32. William Whitney

    That "steel horse" I believe scared me more than a real horse. Then up on it n began to ride chasing the wind with sun in my face. This was the best no counselor or shrink made me feel like this. The good Lord bestowed this on me it got me through a divorce n 25yrs of law enforcement.

  90. Carrie Merkle

    Good music and good time

  91. Trevor Philips

    Real country shit

  92. Marc Henson

    I can't remember what year this song came out, it's been a little while but I remember thinking at the time that there was never another song like it on the radio at the time.

    All these years later and that's never been more true. The real country doesn't exist on the radio anymore.

  93. Dylan Clark

    Is and always will be the king of country

  94. Ronald McReynolds

    In the middle of what is called Country Western, nearly hidden by glitz infiltrating from Pop, Rock and Punk, can be found still the nearly invisible, barely existent thread of pure country western music that centers that genre of music, makes up it's core and still marks the best of what it's about.  But you got to look hard for it and from within that core resides the man who  represents it best.  His name is George Strait.

  95. Skinny Redneck

    I'll admit I ain't no cowboy, but yalls music is just fuckin great. Strait is a real deal. He earns those belt buckles he's got. I've seen him rope. But Justin Moore wants to act like he's fuckin Cowboy Troy or some shit. The fakeness it today's music is just sad...

    cowboy up

    im a cowboy in heart not in my closet i was born a cowboy i love horses and cows i ride bull i was raised tough i was raised with two older bros they use to beat the shit out of me but i still out cowboy em love this life work hard and party loud love this song

    cowboy up

    Tyler Edgar but u r right my freind wanna be john wayne jrs

    Skinny Redneck

    Yeah I do wear slip on work boots. They're called Justin's

  96. Misty Dobbins

    George Strait will always be king of country.. I wish they would bring country back it used to be like Tim McGraw,Allen Jackson the real country but some ones are okay

  97. Charles Beckham

    Kicking back on the Frio, lawn chairs and cold beer, cool breeze in the moon light. Thank you Mr. Straight for the music
