Even A Cowboy Can Dream

He’s not much to look at, a hard working hand
Riding that long lonesome trail
His hat’s worn out, his boot’s are worn down
He’s tall and thin as a rail

He don’t say too much, in the fire’s glow
While the others are shooting the breeze
He stares at the stars, hand on his chin
And they wonder what he sees

It’s something to do with a woman
Down around Abilene
It’s long since over and done with
But even a cowboy can dream
Yes, even a cowboy can dream

Not that he’s sorry, for the life he chose
He’s roamed too far for regrets
The longhorns have led him across thousands of miles
And into as many sunsets

But when the silent nights, give him room to think
There’s a face he can’t shake from his mind
It makes him consider, what life would be like
If he were the settling kind

It’s something to do with a woman
Down around Abilene
It’s long since over and done with
But even a cowboy can dream
Yes, even a cowboy can dream
