"Broken Down Cowboy" lyrics

Broken Down Cowboy

If I was a gambling man
Never would let you play your hand
With a broken down cowboy like me

Cause you never can trust your luck
He's bad news in a pickup truck
That broken down cowboy like me

He's played every card he's got
Had a good hand but he messed it up
With that bum-around
Tumble-down heart

Saddlebags full of pain
Carries them around
Just like a middle name
A losing streak waiting for dark

Oh, he'll string you along
Sing you a lonesome song
But he'll wind up alone
Again

No matter how hard you try
Never going to let you get inside
That tumble-down
Broken down heart

It's a tough riding rodeo
Mean horse threw him
Long time ago
A broken down cowboy like me

But the way I feel about you
Wouldn't want that horse
To hurt you too
A broken down cowboy like me

Oh, he'll string you along
Sing you a lonesome song
But he'll wind up alone
Again

If I was a gambling man
Never would let you play that hand
With a broken down cowboy like me
