"Can't Be a Cowboy Forever" as written by Lee Thomas Miller, Kelley Lovelace and Jacob Lyda....
Now he don't expect her, to stay true to him
And she never says that she will
But he's got a first love, that just might kill him
And she knows he's hooked on the thrill

So she'll wait and worry
Then she'll wait some more
For the fever that drives him
To just run its course
She talks to that picture
They took, their last night together
Says you can't be a cowboy forever
No you can't be a cowboy forever

Sometimes he calls her
He swears that the ground hurts
More than it did yesterday
She knows his voice
And he still sounds determined
To do whatever it takes

So she'll wait and worry
Then she'll wait some more
For the fever that drives him
To just run its course
The whiskey he drinks
Said some things, last spring that upset her
Lord he can't be a cowboy forever
No you can't be a cowboy forever

Then one night he shows up
And says 'what's for dinner?'
With that cocky grin on his face
The way that she smiled
And the way that she held him
Told him, he wasn't too late

And she closed her eyes
And he put that ring on her finger
Said you can't be a cowboy forever
Naw you can't be a cowboy forever
No you can't be a cowboy forever
