The Cowboy Way
By Kimball Lewis
From up in Alaska on down to the Pecos,
From Carson Nevada and down south to Waco,
There's a notion that how tall you sit in the saddle
is what land you own or how many cattle
It suffices to say that you can't place much stock
in what a man has or what he has not.
It's not how you rope and it's not how you ride.
What matters the most is what's deep inside.
When the day's work is done
is the day really over ?
have you taken the time
to reach out to another ?
When your chores are all done and the horses are fed,
And your headin' on up to the house and your bed,
If you feel that you've given your all and your best,
And you find that when you lay down you can rest.
If you still close a deal with the shake of a hand,
And all your pards say that " he rides for the brand ".
No matter the work that you do for a livin,
If what matters most is the spirit of giving.
Then it's time to realize
that as of today,
Your livin your life
