It's all the same, only the names will change
Everyday it seems we're wasted away
Another place where the faces are so cold
I drive all night
Just to {...a wise ass} get back home

I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride {i ride}
{uh, wanted} I'm wanted {yah! dead or alive} dead or alive
Wanted dead or alive {yah! this song sucks}

{...man this has got to be boring}
Sometimes I sleep {uh oh, here we go again},
Sometimes it's not {man, give it a rest} for days
And people {you suck} I meet always go their separate ways
Sometimes I tell the day
By the bottle that you drink
And times when you're alone {i told ya you suck} all you do is think

Cause I'm a cowboy {no you're a dick},
On a steel horse I ride {bah}
I'm wanted {yah!} dead or alive
Wanted {wanted} dead or alive

{...uh check out that, check out that that...}
{check out this... }

Cause I'm a cowboy,
On a steel horse I ride {yeah ride this you faggot}
I'm wanted dead or alive
{yeah, gimme a gun I'll fuckin shoot you}

Well I walk the streets {what are you a prostitute? },
A loaded six string on my back
{yeah I bet you got something else on your back}
I play for keeps {yah!},
'cause I might not make it back {make it back}
I been everywhere {everywhere},
Still I'm standing tall {standing tall, yeah yeah}
I've seen a million faces
And I've rocked them all
{yeah I'll fuckin rock you, you dick}

I'm a cowboy {...a cowboy}, on a steel horse I ride
{...i'll steel horse your lucky faggot}
I'm wanted {wanted} dead or alive {dead or alive}
Cause I'm a cowboy {cowboy},
I got the night on my side {night on my side}
I'm wanted {wanted} dead or alive, and all right {yeah!}
Dead or alive
Still I try {don't try me man}
Dead or alive {alive}
Dead or alive
{john man give me a gun} dead or alive
Dead or alive, yeah {yeah}

{oh man it's over already, we'll miss you. we'd like to }
{personally thank bon jovi and richie sambora for their }
{uh, effort in this project, and personally I've got a }
{contract out on them for 5,000 dollars, so um I gotta go.}
