Cowboys Are Frequently Secretly Fond Of Each Other Lyrics - Willie Nelson



Review The Song (4)


Cowboys Are Frequently Secretly (Fond of Each Other)

Well, there's many a strange impulse out on the plains of West Texas.
There's many a young boy who feels things he can't comprehend.
And a small town don't like it when somebody falls between sexes.
No, a small town don't like it when a cowboy has feelings for men.

And I believe to my soul that inside every man there's the feminine.
And inside every lady there's a deep manly voice loud and clear.
Well, a cowboy may brag about things that he's done with his women.
But the ones who brag loudest are the ones that are most likely queer.

Cowboys are frequently secretly fond of each other.
Say, what do you think all them saddles and boots was about?
And there's many a cowboy who don't understand the way that he feels for his brother.
And inside every cowboy there's a lady that'd love to slip out.

And there's always somebody who says what the others just whisper.
And mostly that someone's the first one to get shot down dead.
So when you talk to a cowboy don't treat him like he was a sister.
You can't fuck with a lady that's sleepin' in each cowboy's head.

Cowboys are frequently secretly fond of each other.
What did you think all them saddles and boots was about?
And there's many a cowboy who don't understand the way that he feels for his brother.
And inside every lady there's a cowboy who wants to come out.
And inside every cowboy there's a lady that'd love to slip out.

Not Willie's | Reviewer: Doogie | 3/21/12

People, people... Willie Nelson did NOT write this song. It is from the 80's. Written and recorded/released by Ned Sublette in 1981. Willie had a tape of song for years and years and AFTER Brokeback Mountain came out he decided he ought to record a version of it himself for release, not thinking it would get any airplay.

And yeh, to the reviewer-dude who "brags loudest" on here.... umm.. time to come out of the closet already. You're obviously going nuts hiding your true identity.

What a surprise! | Reviewer: Joe Collins | 3/2/12

Why does it not surprise me that the person with the bigoted point of view chose to remain anonymous?
Doesn't the song even say that the one who denies it most is "most likely queer"?

Willie Nelson must be queer | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/24/11

Don't know about the other country boys but this country boy ain't got a woman that would love to slip out. But I do have a feeling isn't that slips out every now and then. Kicking queers asses and raising hell

good movie, great song. | Reviewer: Nancy Morrison | 3/16/06

Willies Nelson's song about cowboys is the greatest! The movie Broke Back was good, but combined with the song makes the set really great.
I highly recommend the DVD to anyone with an open mind.
