I own this horse and saddle
And that old Cadillac
This broken down horse trailer
And the clothes that are on my back

Well, I know that it ain't a hell of a lot
But it's all that I can show
From seventeen years
I'm makin' my livin' and ridin' in a rodeo

My wife left me five years ago
In one of them rodeo towns
I can't say that I blame her much
She just wanted to settle down

Oh God, how I miss that woman
It hurt so to see her go
If I was smart, I would've stuck by her
But I'm hooked on this rodeo

And I'm just a lonesome cowboy
I'm a little bit over the hill
I should've quit this thing a long time ago
But I guess, I never will

So I keep on movin' from show to show
Hopin' to change my luck
My good old days are all a memory
But I just can't give it up

There was a time I used to do alright
And bring home my share of the dough
But now I'm losin' out to the younger boys
I guess, I must be gettin' slow

But there's one thing you learn from this
You gotta make it on your own
'Cause when you're on top you've got a million friends
But when your down buddy you're all alone

And I'm just a lonesome cowboy
I'm a little bit over the hill
I should've quit this thing a long time ago
But I guess, I never will

So I keep on movin' from show to show
Hopin' to change my luck
My good old days are all a memory
But I just can't give it up

My good old days are all a memory
But I just can't give it up
