Cowboy Life

from Go Deep by Richard Turgeon

/

about

An alt-country fantasy about ditching it all for a calmer, quieter life with more time to love, dream, and reflect.

lyrics

Well the sun went down
on our way of life
Big-city living
With its smoggy skies

No time to think
No time to dream
And the days get busier
I wonder what it means

I wanna cowboy life
with my frontier wife
I wanna place to settle down
and build a night campfire

I wanna see you smile
I wanna rest a while
I want the stream to wash away
The memories and miles

Let’s pack our bags
It’s time to say goodbye
We’re heading down that dusty road
To find a clear blue sky

We’ll find a plot of land
We’ll stake a modest claim
And this I promise you
We’ll never the same

It’s getting harder every night to see the stars
I never knew the life we chose could be this hard
I wonder where we find the answers
Wonder where we’re free to roam
I wonder where on god’s green earth it feels like home

I wanna cowboy life
with my frontier wife
I wanna place to settle down
and build a night campfire

I wanna see you smile
I wanna rest a while
I want the stream to wash away
The memories and miles

We built the cabin of our dreams
Looked up at skies we’d never seen
We found the time and space to finally find our way
It’s led me back to you today…

I wanna cowboy life
with my frontier wife
I wanna place to settle down
and build a night campfire

I wanna see you smile
I wanna rest a while
I want the stream to wash away
The memories and miles
