The Spirit of the Cowboy
by Cliff Erickson
The Spirit of the Cowboy by Cliff Erickson
Listen to Cliff Erickson Play This Song
The Spirit of the Cowboy lies deep within the soul
It makes no difference if you're young or old
 
Where the Spirit comes from, I'll never know
It may have come from an ol' TV show
It may have come when I stood on the plains
and looked at the ruts made by an ol' Wagon Train
 
As I lay in my cowboy bed
That's the saddle beneath my head
I look up at the millions of star in the sky
And think of the eras gone by
 
I see the exploits of the Trapper, Scout, and Mountain Man
And what a difference they made upon this land
We tried to take pride of our Native Americans born
As we Killed, Pondered, and Scorn
 
Now that the Great Civil War was done
The Cowboy movement has just begun
I can picture how hard the Cowboy would strive
Working that fence line, or the Dirty and Dusty Cattle Drive
 
As the Cowboy rode out upon the plains
He could hear the sounds of the Trains
Now that the Cattle drives were done
The Buffalo would also fall at the hands of the Gun
 
A new era has come
The westward movement has just begun
The old Days of the West are gone
But the Legends and the times will live on
 
As I awake for another day
And go to work for that same old pay
I will put on my Jeans, or my three piece suit
But I will always wear my Cowboy Boots
 
The Spirit of the Cowboy lies deep within the soul
It makes no difference if you're young or old
