so you think you’re a cowboy lyrics – emmylou harris

so you think you’re a cowboy but you’re only a kid
with a mind to do everything wrong
and it starts to get smoother when the circle begins
but by the time that you get there it’s gone

so you think you’re a winner but you’re losing again
the cards are all lucky and then
and the hand that you’re holding means nothing at all
just knowing is all that is there

so you think you’re a cowboy but you’re only a kid
with a mind to do everything wrong
and it starts to get smoother, the circle begins
but by the time that you get there it’s gone

so your life is fun, best that you can
tomorrow could not right the wrong
and don’t wait for tomorrow bring you your dreams
’cause by the time that they get there, gone

so you think you’re a cowboy but you’re only a kid
with a mind to do everything wrong
and it starts to get smoother when the circle begins
but by the time that you get there it’s gone
yeah but by the time that you get there it’s gone
