So you think you're a cowboy but you're only a kid
With a mind to do everything wrong
And it starts to get smoother when the circle begins
But by the time that you get there it's gone

So you think you're a winner but you're losin' again
The cards are all lucky but then
And the hand that you're holdin' means nothin' at all
Just knowin' is all that is there

So you think you're a cowboy but you're only a kid
With a mind to do everything wrong
And it starts to get smoother when the circle begins
But by the time that you get there it's gone

So your life is a fun, the best that you can
Tomorrow is not right or wrong
And don't wait for tomorrow to bring you your dreams
'Cause by the time that they get there they're gone

So you think you're a cowboy but you're only a kid
With a mind to do everything wrong
And it starts to get smoother when the circle begins
But by the time that you get there it's gone
Yeah, by the time that you get there it's gone
