Moe Bandy Cowboys Is not Supposed To Cry Lyrics

Oh I am just a cowboy on my way back to Houston
I used to play the rodeos
But I can’t play ’em like I used to

I’ve given it up I’m layin’ it down
I’ve had enough of being a rodeo clown
So if I see a tear running down my face
Don’t ask me why cause cowboys ain’t supposed to cry
( steel – fiddle )
Oh I am just a drifter on my way back from Denver
I kept ’em laughin’ from in my barrel
But now it seems it’s too hard to handle

So I’ve given it up I’m layin’ it down…
Cause cowboys ain’t supposed to cry
