about

Although it sounds like one, this is not a cowboy song - it's a wannabe a cowboy song. If you grew up watching old cowboy serials on TV (and probably if you didn't), then you'll relate.
The sound of the pedal steel in Kevin's hands really makes it for me.
Special thanks to my fellow cowpokes Damon, James, and Jeff. Yee-Haa!

lyrics

I.
This old boy was born with the dreams of the old songs,
Of ridin' the range and singin' like Gene Autrey.
Watchin' Roy Rogers and Trigger right after Hopalong,
I'd ride through my backyard prairie just like they taught me.

CHORUS:
Singin' Ki-Yi-Yippee-I-Yay, Yippee Ki-Yi-Yippee-I-Yay
YEE-HAA!
If I had a horse and a blanket, I'd leave here today.

II.
I played all the usual games that all little boys played.
Soldiers, and sailors, and racin' our soap box cars.
But I knew in my heart I'd be leavin' here someday,
And head for the land of the longhorn and sleep under stars.

CHORUS:

Lead Verse

CHORUS:

III.
Seems the older ya get, the more ya forget things.
I don't climb trees anymore, or play with toy guns.
But some things just never leave, ya know, I can still sing.
And still I can dream about ridin' into the sun.

CHORUS:
Repeat CHORUS:

OUTRO:
Happy Trails to you.
