Toby Keith Should've Been A Cowboy (Live) Lyrics

Last updated: 07/14/2009 12:00:00 PM

I bet you never heard ol' Marshall Dillon say
Miss Kitty have you ever thought of running away
And settling down, would you marry me
If I asked you twice and begged you pretty please?
She'd have said yes in a New York minute; they never tied the knot.
His heart wasn't in it, he just stole a kiss and he rode away.
He never hung his hat up at Kitty's place.

I should've been a cowboy.
Should've learned to rope and ride.
Wearing my six-shooter, ridin' my pony on a cattle drive.
Stealing a young girl's heart. Yeah, just like Gene and Roy.
Sing those campfire songs. Oh, I should've been a cowboy.

I might've had a sidekick with a funny name,
Running wild through the hills chasing Jesse James.
Ending up on the brink of danger,
And riding shotgun with the Texas Rangers.
Go West, young man!
Haven't you been told that
California's full of whiskey and women and gold.
Hidin' out all night beneath the desert star
With a dream in my eye and a prayer my heart.

I should've been a cowboy.
Should've learned to rope and ride.
Wearing my six-shooter, ridin' my pony on a cattle drive.
Stealing a young girl's heart, just like Gene and Roy.
Singing those campfire songs, oh I should've been a cowboy.

I should've been a cowboy.
I should've learned to rope and ride.
I'd be wearing my six-shooter, riding my pony on a cattle drive.
Stealing a young girl's heart, just like Gene and Roy.
Singing those campfire songs, yeah, I should've been a cowboy.

Yeah I should've been a cowboy
I should've been a cowboy
