I know why cowboys sleep at night
If they didn’t they’d ride neath the black open sky
And see they could fly instead of ride
And they’d ride ride off the rocks
They’d fly off the rock
Off their rockers

I know why cowboys sleep at night
If they didn’t they’d ride neath the black open sky
And they’d count all the stars
And the distance to Mars
And they’d see they could go even farther

I know why cowboys sleep at night
If they didn’t they’d ride neath the cracked open sky
And they’d see they could fly instead of ride
And they’d notice that, oh! there’s no roof on the earth
There’s no ceiling
And get this strange feeling and have to try

And then they’d wonder how
And then they’d find out how
And then all the cows would be running about
Left on their own just to wander

So sleep cowboy, sleep cowboy
sleep cowboy, sleep cowboy
