The Ballad of Cowboy Twenty Songtext
von Dave Loggins

The Ballad of Cowboy Twenty Songtext

A small-town cowboy walked the streets of Dallas
′Til a driving rain drove him into a telephone booth
He asked the operator for assistance
Said, "Honey, I'm not calling long-distance
I′ve done spent all my money on a bus ticket just to come see you"

"Now you knew I wouldn't make a lot of money riding in the rodeo
And I'd never be good for more than a couple of beers
So you thought it′d be best to forget me
So you moved to the city and left me
Riding herd on a heartache headed down a river of tears"


"So I came here ′cause I still love you
Yes, I came here 'cause you weren′t there
I came here against your will
But I got a wound that just won't heal
Yes, I came here ′cause I still care"

Night falls on four gray walls in a cheap hotel
Where Cowboy Twenty sleeps but he does not hear
'Cause he′d swallowed more than her answers
And now her change of heart was preceded by an angel
Leaving these words and the telephone ringing in her ears

He said, "I came here 'cause I still love you
Yes, I came here 'cause you weren′t there
I came here against your will
But I got a wound that just won′t heal
So I came here 'cause I still care"
