OLD NASHVILLE COWBOYS (Arthur Killough / Billy McClelland) Hank Williams Jr. - 1979 The old Nashville cowboy was burdened with time He was bent by his years and the fight with the wine With a head full of music and an old nursery rhyme A heart full of sadness and dark sunken eyes He told me they cheated, he told me they stole The strength from his youth and the songs from his soul He said he was family till he got too old And he called them miners, motherlode finders Digging so deep in search of more gold Oh, where are the cowboys and the home on the range Does anyone know that they've killed Jesse James Now the good guys on TV seem bad, ain't it strange And the old Nashville cowboy's missed out on the change The old cowboy's life now is gone with the past Like the whiskey he drank, it all went down too fast He didn't know how to make each swallow last And the head waitress won't be back to fill up his glass Oh, where are the cowboys and the home on the range Does anyone know that they've killed Jesse James Is anyone listening or is everyone blind Them old Nashville cowboys will sing for a dime And hard times are cheap at the end of the line (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - July 2012)
