Broken Down Cowboy Lyrics

by John Fogerty

If I was a gamblin man
Never wouldve let you play your hand
With a broken down cowboy like me

Cause you never can trust your luck
Hes bad news in a pick-up truck
That broken down cowboy like me

Hes played every card hes got
Had a good hand but he messed it up
With that bum around tumble down heart

Saddle bags full of pain
Carries em around just like a middle name
A losin' streak waitin' for dark

Oh, hell string you along
Sing you a lonesome song
But hell wind up alone again

No matter how hard you try
Never gonna let you get inside
That tumble down broken down heart

Its a tough riding rodeo
Mean horse threw him long time ago
A broken down cowboy like me

But the way I feel about you
Wouldnt want that horse to hurt you too
A broken down cowboy like me

Oh, hell string you along
Sing you a lonesome song
But hell wind up alone again

If I was a gamblin man
Never wouldve let you play that hand
With a broken down cowboy like me
