lyrics

We Could Be Cowboys - Written by Roger Campo / ASCAP

You said we could be cowboys
Riding down Broadway
Two Queens desperados
Making our escape

We could ride stolen horses
Across the fifty ninth street bridge
I could be the king of Egypt
Or a Siamese prince

They say that blood, is thicker than,
Most anything
Cause the same blood that runs
through your brother’s heart
runs through
your own veins

In the bright lights of Broadway
I redeemed our name
For a moment we could dream
Of fortune and fame

But you got lost in the illusion
Tripped up by the lights
Until the dream was a delusion
That ruined the promise of the night

And you rode into a darkness
So distant and black
Until you lost that part of you
That you could never get back

And they say that love is thicker than,
Most anything
Cause the same wound that run
through your brother’s heart
runs through your own veins

Last night I dreamed, I found you on the street
Your once powerful horse, lying at your feet
All it’s beauty, and majesty was gone
You drew a gun, and you put him down

I gave you a hand up, onto my horse
Your hand was swollen, blistered and coarse
Your eyes were cold, distant and dark
We slowly road my horse into, central park

The city lights in all the windows
Look like candles in a church
And in this open air cathedral
We blessed your horse’s last breath on this earth

This cowboy life ain’t for the weak hearted
Those still alive and those departed
Cause the lonesome rider, who can’t make his peace
Will forever haunt, these empty streets
