"Like a Good Cowboy" as written by Greg Barnhill and Holly Lamar....
Walking down the street in L.A.
Caught in the middle of a heat wave
Pass by the star of John Wayne
And I think to myself how times change

Now, where the cattle once roamed
There's a Burger King and a peep show
We do everything from our cell phones
Ridin' in, out steel broncos

Ooh, it's Dow Jones
Hi-low price of corn in Tokyo
Wild west neighborhood

It's quick draw credit cards
The world turns but in my heart
I'm ridin' down the range like a
Good, good, good, good

(Cowboy)
I do what I say, say what I mean
Try to get a grip on the American dream
(Like a good cowboy)
From Sunrise to Sunset Strip I'll be
Workin' to the bone just to try to have a voice

When Friday night comes
I'm gonna turn up the noise
Like a good, good, good cowboy
Oh, yeah, alright

Dollar don't go far these days
The new frontier is a freeway
5 PM is a rat race
Even Eastwood moved to Monterey

Yeah, it's Lean Cuisines, microwaves
Silicone and cellophane, 'Aliens' in Hollywood
Bright lights, big city, concrete nitty gritty
Ridin' down the range like a good, good, good, good

(Cowboy)
I do what I say, say what I mean
Try to get a grip on the American dream
(Like a good cowboy)
From sunrise to sunset, strip I'll be
Workin' to the bone just to try to have a voice

When Friday night comes
I'm gonna turn up the noise
Like a good, good, good, good
Good, good, good, good cowboy

Oh, it's Dow Jones
Hi, low, price of corn in Tokyo
Wild west neighborhood

Yeah, it's quick draw credit cards
The world turns but in my heart
I'm ridin' down the range like a
Good, good, good, good

I do what I say, say what I mean
Try to grab a piece of that American dream
(Like a good cowboy)
From sunrise to sunset, strip I'll be
Workin' to the bone just to try to have a voice

When Friday night comes
I'm gonna turn up the noise
Like a good, good, good, good
Good, good, good, good, good cowboy
