cowpoke lyrics – hank williams jr.


from cheyenne to douglas. all the ranges i know
i drift with the wind, no one cares where i go

i’m lonesome but happy’ rich but i’m broke
and the good lord knows the reason i’m just a cowpoke

well i ain’t got a dime in these old worn out jeans
so i’ll quit eatin’ steak and go back to beans

i’ll pick up a ten spot in prescott i know (not press god)
from ridin’ the broncs in the big rodeo

maybe this winter, a filly i’ll find,
and i’ll spend the whole summer with her on my mind,

but i’ll never be saddled, i’ll never be broke,
i’m a ramblin’, gamblin’, driftin’ cowpoke
uh huh huh ooo ooo ooo

been down in the prairie my pony and i
hear the wail of the coyote hear his cry
uh huh huh ooo ooo ooo

thanks for helping me remember the words to this old-timer. i learned it from my dad when i was a kid, (i’m 62). i thought of this song today, couldn’t remember all the words. now i have them back. never heard the last one though. kind of awkward. needs another word or two.
thanks-george bentley
