Hank Williams Jr - Old Nashville Cowboys

The old Nashville cowboy was burdened with time

He was bent by his years and the fight with the wine

With a head full of music and an old nursery rhyme

A heart full of sadness and dark sunken nights

He told me they've cheated he told me they stole

The strenght from his youth and the songs from his soul

He said he raised family till he got too old

And he called them miners mother Lord finders

Digging so deep in search of more gold

Oh where are the cowboys and the home on the range

Does anyone know that they've killed Jesse James

Now the good guys on TV seem bad ain't it strange

And the old Nashville cowboys missed out on the change

The old cowboy's life now is gone with the past

Like whiskey he drank it all went out too fast

He didn't know how to make each swallow last

And a head waitress won't be back to fill up his glass

Oh where are the cowboys and the home on the range

Does anyone know that they've killed Jesse James

Is anyone listening or is everyone blind

And old Nashville cowboys will sing for a dime

And hard times are cheap at the end of the line
