This is my first life, or is my last life?
Am I gonna make it to nirvana?
Am I ever gonna see God?
Is space really expanding?
Am I getting bigger in my chair?
I want to know it all and see it all too

I'm a southern man but I'm an atheist
A Pudding Swamp kid with tattooed fists
I'm never in the middle and always on top
Always screaming, "Fuck the cops"
I'm a cosmic cowboy
I'm a cosmic cowboy

They say my uncle Pete was a hard drinker
He'd get drunk by himself pass out in the field behind his store
My great granddaddy Cook was an itinerant preacher
Always preaching about the liquor that he'd been drinking the night before

I'm a southern man but I'm an atheist
A Pudding Swamp kid with tattooed fists
I'm never in the middle and always on top
Always screaming, "Fuck the cops"
I'm a cosmic cowboy

That's what I think

I'm a southern man but I'm an atheist
A Pudding Swamp kid with tattooed fists
I'm never in the middle and always on top
Always screaming, "Fuck the cops"
I'm a cosmic cowboy
Cosmic cowboy
