Last Cowboy Song Lyrics - Ed Bruce

Review The Song (6)

This is the last cowboy song the end of a hundred year waltz
Voices sound sad as they're singing along another piece of America's lost

He rides a feed lot and clerks in a market on weekends selling tobacco and beer
His dreams of tomorrow surrounded by fences
But he'll dream tonight of when fences weren't here
He blazed the trail with Lewis and Clark
And eyeball to eyeball Ol' Wyatt backed down
He stood shoulder to shoulder with Travis in Texas
And rode with the Seventh when Custer went down
This is the last cowboy song...

Remington showed us how he looked on canvas
And Louie L'Amore has told us his tale
And Willie and Waylon and me sing about him
And wish to God we could have ridden his trail

The Old Chisholm Trail is covered in concrete now
And they truck 'em to market in fifty foot rigs
They blow by his marker never slowing to read
Like living and dying was all he did
This is the last cowboy song...
This is the last cowboy song...
[ guitar ]
This is the last cowboy song...

The Last Cowboy Song | Reviewer: Danny Combs | 12/9/12

I just lost one of my best friends who this song described to a tee. He was a true cowboy, and one of the finest men I have ever known. Loved his cattle, his horses, and his land. Kept a U.S. flag flying full time.
God Bless you Bill, as you blessed us with being part of our lives

Review of Ed Bruce's "The Last Cowboy Song" | Reviewer: Jilm Flynn | 1/31/12

Great song by a great writer. It's so true, and that's what makes the song sink in. It's a song of substance with historical meaning, and when you hear it by either Ed Bruce or the Highwaymen, you immediately get caught up in the saga of the American cowboy.

real country music | Reviewer: cowboy of the north | 6/18/10

i love this song, the highwaymen sing real country for real kaboys, country today is sung by shoe salesmen and bar skanks, i just wish george strait would sing this song, or chris ledoux.
this song topic is what my mind wanders to almost everynight.

Abeautiful,sad song | Reviewer: Marty Pishioner | 12/23/08

I love The last Cowboy song.It's lyrics and rythem are some of Ed Bruces' best,and it reminds us of a way of life that is vanishing and if ever lost will make us much the poorer because of it. May the words of this song always be rememberd by somebody who cares.

Great Song | Reviewer: Sue Rogers | 8/17/08

I love the Last Cowboy Song, especially when the Highwaymen sing it.It's got good lyrics and it makes me want to know about all those men mentioned in it, such as Lewis and Clark, Louis L'amore and Travis. I think the whole American cowboy thing is very interesting and wish I had been born an American! Love Johnny Cash & co - real men!

The Last Cowboy Song | Reviewer: Bob Caito | 7/21/07

The lyrics of today's country music are boring and meaningless sung by people who are trying to be cowboys. Ed Bruce's "Last Cowboy Song" tells a story, the tale of the American cowboy that has all but vanished from the scene. As the song says, Remington and Louie L'Amore immortalized the image of the American cowboy in their works. This is a very underrated song that tells a realistic and unforgetable story.
