"Ride Cowboy Ride" as written by Jon Bon Jovi and Richard Sambora....
Ride cowboy ride
Through the back door to heaven to the other side
I wanna know the danger of a kiss at midnight
Ride, cowboy, ride

Yeah, I learn my lesson
In the story of trial
So I made my confession
In this sleazy motel

I could be the romantic
I could try my best lines
But I ain't got the money
An' ain't got the town

Ride, cowboy, ride
Through the back door to heaven to the other side
I wanna know the danger of a kiss at midnight
Ride, cowboy, ride

So you want to be a cowboy
Ride, ride, ride
You wanna be a big shot
Baby, come on
Ride, ride, ride

    General CommentA cowboy track. Was the song that led up to Stick to your guns on New Jersey. I like the recording technique they used on the song.

    General Commentthese lyrics are so wrong!

    the correct lyrics are:

    Ride cowboy ride
    Through the back door to heaven to the other side
    I wanna know the danger of a kiss at midnight
    Ride, cowboy, ride
    Yeah, I learned my lesson
    Here's a sordid tail
    So I make my confession
    In this sleazy motel
    I could be nomadic, I could try my best line
    But I ain't got the money
    And we ain't got the time
    Ride, cowboy, ride
    Through the back door to heaven to the other side.
    I wanna know the danger of a kiss at midnight
    Ride cowboy ride
    So you want to be a cowboy?
    Ride, cowboy, ride
    Baby, come on.
    Ride, ride, ride.

    General CommentWell, you still got two bits of it wrong ;-)

    Here's a sordid tail -> Here's a story to tell

    I could be nomadic, I could try my best line -> I could be the romantic, I could try my best line

    General CommentThe writing credit is to Captain Kidd and the King of Swing. Enough said. :)

    General CommentThis song was actually recorded on Bon Jovi's tour bus, they just decided to throw it into the albu last minute. The full and correct lyrics are;

    Ride cowboy ride
    Through the back door to heaven to the other side
    I wanna know the danger of a kiss at midnight
    Ride, cowboy, ride
    Yeah, I learned my lesson
    Here's a story to tell
    So I make my confession
    In this sleazy motel
    I could be the romantic, I could try my best line
    But I ain't got the money
    And we ain't got the time
    Ride, cowboy, ride
    Through the back door to heaven to the other side.
    I wanna know the danger of a kiss at midnight
    Ride cowboy ride
    So you want to be a cowboy?
    Ride, cowboy, ride
    Baby, come on.
    Ride, ride, ride.

    great song~~~
