This Cowboy's Hat Lyrics - Chris LeDoux

Review The Song (7)



(Spoken) Well there's always been groups of people that could never see eye to eye... an' I always thought if they'd get the chance to sit down and talk face to face they might realize they got a lot in common.....

Well I was sittin' in a coffee shop, just havin' a cup to pass the time.
Swappin' rodeo stories with this ole cowboy friend of mine.
When some motor-cycle riders started snickerin' in the back
started pokin' fun at my friend's hat.
One ole boy said hey Tex, where'd you park your horse.
My friend just pulled his hat down low, but they couldn't be ingnored.
One husky fellow said, I think I'll rip that hat right off your head.
That's when my friend turned around, and this is what he said.....
You'll ride a black tornado, cross't the western sky
Rope an ole blue norther and milk it till it's dry
Bull dawg the Mississippi, pin it's ears down flat...
Long before you take this cowboy's hat....
Now partner, this ole hat is better left alone,
She used to be my daddy's, but last year he passed on.
My nephew skinned the Rattler that makes up this ole hatband,
sponsored links
But back in 69 he died in Viet_Nam
Now the eagle feather was given to me by an indian friend of mine
But someone ran him down somewheres round that Arizona line
And a real special lady gave me this hat pin
But I don't know if I'll ever see her again.
You'll ride a black tornado, cross't the western sky
Rope an ole blue norther and Milk it till it's dry
Bull dawg the Mississippi pin it's ears down flat...
Long before you take this cowboy's hat
Now if your leather jacket means to you what this hat means to me
Then I guess we understand each other, and we'll just let it be.
But if you still think it's funny, man, you got my back up against the wall.
And if you touch my hat, your gonna have to fight us all...
Well, right then I caught a little sadness in that gang leaders eyes,
And he turned back t'wards the others and they all just sorta shuffled on outside
But when my friend turned back t'wards me, I noticed his old hat brim
Well it was turned up.. in a big ole texas grin
You'll ride a black tornado cross't the western skies
Rope an ole blue norther, milk it till it's dry
Bull dawg the Mississippi, pin it's ears down flat
Long before you take this cowboy's hat.

I spent some time with Jake Brooks, who wrote the song 'This Cowboy's Hat'. I have to say he is one of the most upstanding, honest, ethical and talented people that I have ever had the pleasure to write with. Love you Jake & Cindy!!



I saw Chris sing this song | Reviewer: Michelle Steinwachs | 4/6/11

I saw Chris preform this song in Laughlin Nevada and when he got to
But when my friend turned back t'wards me, I noticed his old hat brim
Well it was turned up.. in a big ole texas grin
every single person in the crowd roared the lyrics. It was one of the best concerts I have ever seen.



Jake Brooks songwriter | Reviewer: jtc | 9/22/10

I was at a friends place -- Artemis Acres Paint Horse Ranch -- in northwest Montana -- musta been four years ago. They had a big trail ride and a cookout up in their meadow, and everyone had come back to the lodge as the evening got cooler. A guy there started pickin and singing this song. It was awesome. Just him and one other guy on guitars. He wrote the song for Chris Ladoux. I think he had won an award for it. I just googled his name -- Jake Brooks. He was an amazing talent.



Best song ever | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/1/10

I heard this song for the first time in 1997 when I was stationed in Korea while in the Army, was at a bar outside of Camp Casey when it was played, all of a sudden about a dozen guys with cowboy hats went into the middle of the dance floor, bowed their heads down and lifted their hats in the air for the entire song. Unbelievably powerful. I'm not a cowboy or from Texas, but can relate to this song as a proud American that would do anything for my country!

one of my favorite songs by one of my favorite artists. LeDoux tells great stories, this is one of them. This one really pumps in your blood, especially if you are a cowboy.
