Treasure Island

Cowboy Goodbye


I grabbed a roll of quarters, stopped at the ATM
Adjust my hat as I walk in
its a cowboy goodbye time again
Oh sure girl I miss you In a cowboy sorta way
But for tonight I'm saying good bye
In a cowboy kinda way
I'm gonna fill that box with every goodbye song
Pretend I'm strong, while holding on
Say goodbye by the double
When its a cowboy goodbye Just stand clear
What ever you do, dont ask if that's a tear
Oh I'm saying goodbye the only way I know how
Pouring a double then getting buck wild
Sure girl I think about you
But you'll never know
cause somethings darling, a cowboy just dont show
Oh its a lonely life in a cowboy way
Hell its who I am, ant gonna change
So tonight I'm gonna say goodbye
the only way I know
Hey bartender pour me another
Dont let my glass go dry
Im saying goodbye.....in a cowboy sorta way

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
