"Broken Down Cowboy" as written by and Fogerty....
If I was a gamblin' man
Never would've let you play your hand
With a broken down cowboy like me

'Cause you never can trust your luck
He's bad news in a pick-up truck
That broken down cowboy like me

He's played every card he?s got
Had a good hand but he messed it up
With that bum around tumble down heart

Saddle bags full of pain
Carries 'em around just like a middle name
A losin' streak waitin' for dark

Oh, he'll string you along
Sing you a lonesome song
But he'll wind up alone again

No matter how hard you try
Never gonna let you get inside
That tumble down broken down heart

It's a tough riding rodeo
Mean horse threw him long time ago
A broken down cowboy like me

But the way I feel about you
Wouldn't want that horse to hurt you too
A broken down cowboy like me

Oh, he'll string you along
Sing you a lonesome song
But he'll wind up alone again

If I was a gamblin' man
Never would've let you play that hand
With a broken down cowboy like me
