My homage to the Old West. Lyrics below.

"Ain't No Cowboy" by: Nick Swan

I read "All the Pretty Horses" by Cormac McCarthy
Seen every damn western that's ever been made
But growin' up in Knoxville, didn't see too many horses
Just pretty woman and beer and football games

Well I grew up in the suburbs, not a ranch in Oklahoma
I ain't ever set foot in the Rio Grande
But I know one thing for certain - I can whisper to the ladies
And stroke their manes before I mount 'em from the back

I ain't no cowboy, but I can wear this hat well
I ain't from Texas, but I been down there
I don't fight Injuns, cause they always been here
I ain't no cowboy, but I can ride a wild mare

Well I been up in this city about as long as I remember
Wanna breathe that air on the open plains
Just drive out to the country with a dog, some dames and whiskey
And light that fire before we light up this stage

I ain't no cowboy, but I can wear this hat well
I ain't from Texas, but I been down there
I don't fight Injuns, cause they always been here
I ain't no cowboy, but I can ride a wild mare

You see, I'm not up here tryin' to be somethin' that I ain't never gonna be
I just like singing and pickin' these lonesome songs
But me and John Wayne and the Man With No Name
We're all three lookin for the same old thing
Just to be free

I ain't no cowboy, but I can wear this hat well
I ain't from Texas, but I been down there
I don't fight Injuns, cause they always been here
I ain't no cowboy, but I can ride a wild mare
I ain't no cowboy, but I'm gettin there
