I ain't a cowboy anymore
I pulled the spurs up off my boots
I left my Stetson in the dust
Now my six-shooter's gone to rust
And my lasso is my noose

I sold my horse to Bill the Kid
I learned to walk the straight and narrow
No robbin' banks or stealin' hearts
No more false words or hopes or starts
The sunset calls, but I don't care, oh

Every time I walked into that saloon
They had to play a minor chord
I'm lookin' for a major overhaul
I'm in good-woman withdrawal
And I ain't a cowboy anymore

I'll get my mind out the corral
I gotta get down from the saddle
Stop treatin' girls like they was cattle
I'm shorin' up moral morale

La la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la

That's not to say I'm goin' soft
Hard luck's taught me a thing or two
I can still kill a man
With my bare hands
But that's not what these hands wanna do

They wanna (???) your body down
They wanna take you on the floor
They wanna make you scream and shout
But for today, they'll do without
I stand undaunted at your door
You think you know what I'm about
But sugar, don't you have a doubt
I ain't a cowboy anymore
