"The Cowboy In Me" as written by Craig Michael Wiseman, Al Anderson and Jeffrey Steele....
I don't know why I act the way I do
Like I ain't got a single thing to lose
Sometimes I'm my own worst enemy
I guess that's just the cowboy in me

I got a life that most would love to have
But sometimes I still wake up fightin' mad
At where this road I'm heading down might lead
I guess that's just the cowboy in me

The urge to run, the restlessness
The heart of stone I sometimes get
The things I've done for foolish pride
The me that's never satisfied
The face that's in the mirror when I don't like what I see
I guess that's just the cowboy in me

The urge to run, the restlessness
The heart of stone I sometimes get
The things I've done for foolish pride
The me that's never satisfied
The face that's in the mirror when I don't like what I see
I guess that's just the cowboy in me

Girl I know there's times you must have thought
There ain't a line you've drawn I haven't crossed
But you set your mind to see this love on through
I guess that's just the cowboy in you

We ride and never worry about the fall
I guess that's just the cowboy in us all

    General CommentThis song is me 100%. I can apply this whole song to my life. I love that last line "We Ride And Never Worry About The Fall,
    I Guess That's Just The Cowboy In Us All. . ." That line makes the whole song.

    General CommentThis song is great. It's talking about how we act sometimes. We act tough, rugged, much like cowboys, eventhough we are just normal people. Sometimes when we do stuff it's like it brings our the cowboy in us all.

    General CommentThis is an AWESOME song.

    It's about living life and not worrying about what comes next.... because you are enjoying the ride... the ups and down... the urge to run, restlessness, not liking what we see of ourselves sometimes... it's all part of being human.... and if you fall then so be it because at least you've taken the ride and have no regrets of what you might have missed - "We Ride And Never Worry About The Fall, I Guess That's Just The Cowboy In Us All." (best line in the song of course)

    General CommentThis song describes me very well... But then again... it describes just about anybody else also. I have to dissagree with "the best line of the song"... Most people think it' the last part. "We ride and never worry 'bout the fall, I guess that's just the cowboy in us all." My favorite line is: "Sometimes I'm my own worst enemy. I guess that's just the cowboy in me". That's my favorite because everybody feels that way sometime.

    General CommentWe all have kind of a rough, rugged cowboy exterior. We have a pride that causes us to do things that we're not proud of and we sometimes do stuff that we regret, that makes us angry at ourselves. But it's "the cowboy in us all", it's part of being human. Great song!
