Eddy Arnold - "Cowpoke" lyrics

(Stan Jones)

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
'Cause I drift with the wind
All the ranges I know

No one cares where I go. (Moan)
In these old worn out jeans
I ain't got a dime
And go back to beans.
So I'll stop eatin' steak
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
And we might spend all the summer
With her on my mind.
A felly I'll find

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