John Wayne Cowboy

Recorded by The Trishas - High, Wide, and Handsome (2012)
Music and Lyrics by Owen Temple and Jamie Lin Wilson



  

Hands like granite rock
Door you can't unlock
Keeps ticking like a windup clock
Won't ever stop

Comes in like an earthquake
Bends but never breaks
Look you in the eyes handshake
That's all it takes

Plays cards close to the vest
Hard on all the rest
He don't care for second best
Not impressed

If you can
Show me the hand
You were dealt along the way
Heartbreak, pain, joy, John Wayne cowboy
Come to save the day

Narrow eyes in the morning sun
Count the days one by one
Never finish 'til it's done
Are you, son?

If you can show me the hand
You were dealt along the way
Heart break pain joy John Wayne cowboy
Come to save the day

If you can show me the hand
You were dealt along the way
Heartbreak, pain, joy, John Wayne cowboy
Come to save the day, hey

Heartbreak, pain, joy, John Wayne cowboy
Come to save the day
Heartbreak, pain, joy, John Wayne cowboy
Come to save the day

If you can show me the hand
You were dealt along the way

If you can show me the hand
You were dealt along the way
Heartbreak, pain, joy, John Wayne cowboy
Come to save the day, hey
