Well, Cowboy Dan's a major player
In the cowboy scene
He goes to the reservation drinks
And gets mean

He's gonna start a war
He's gonna start a war
And he hops in his Pickup
Puts the pedal to the floor
And says "I got mine but I want more"

Because, Cowboy Dan's a major player
In the cowboy scene
He goes to the reservation drinks
And gets mean

He goes to the desert
Fires his rifle in the sky
And says, "God if I have to die
You will have to die"

Because, Cowboy Dan's a major player
In the cowboy scene
I didn't move to the city
The city moved to me
And I want out desperately

Can't do it, not even if sober
Can't get that engine turned over
Can't do it, not even if sober
Can't get that engine turned over

No, no, not even if sober
Can't get that engine turned over

Standing in the tall grass
Thinking nothing
You know we need oxygen to breathe
Oxygen to breathe

Standing in the tall grass
Thinking nothing
You know we need oxygen to breathe
Oxygen to breathe

Everytime you think you're walking
You're just moving the ground
Everytime you think you're talking
You're just moving your mouth
Everytime you think you're looking
You're just looking down

Well, Cowboy Dan's a major player
In the cowboy scene
He goes to the reservation drinks
And gets mean

He hops in his Pickup
Puts the pedal to the floor
And says "I got mine
But I want more"

'Cause, Cowboy Dan's a major player
In the cowboy scene
He goes to the reservation drinks
And gets mean

He goes to the desert
Fires his rifle in the sky
And says, "God if I have to die
You will have to die"

Cowboy Dan's a major player
In the cowboy scene
He goes the the reservation drinks
And gets mean

I didn't move to the city
The city moved to me
And I want out desperately

Can't do it, not even if sober
Can't get that engine turned over
Can't do it, not even if sober
Can't get that engine turned over

No, no, not even if sober
Can't get that engine turned over
Yeah, not even if sober
Can't get that engine turned over
