Mamas, Don't Let Your Babies

Sarah's picture

I bet you never heard ol' Marshall Dillon say

Miss Kitty have you ever thought of running away

And settling down, would you marry me

If I asked you twice and begged you pretty please?

Aw, she'd have said yes in a New York minute,

they never tied the knot. His heart wasn't in it,

He just stole a kiss and rode away,

never hung his hat up at Kitty's place.

Shoulda been a cowboy

Shoulda learned to rope and ride.

Wearing my six-shooter,

Ridin' my pony on a cattle drive.

Stealing a young girl's heart just like Gene and Roy.

Singin' those campfire songs ... shoulda been a cowboy!


I shoulda been a cowboy ...

I mighta had a sidekick with a funny name,
Running wild through the hills chasing Jesse James.

Ending up on the brink of danger

Riding shotgun with the Texas Rangers.

Go West, young man!Haven't you been told?
California's full of whiskey and women and gold.

Hidin' out all night beneath the desert stars

With a dream in my eye and a prayer in my heart.

Shoulda been a cowboy, shoulda learnt to rope and ride.

Wearin my six-shooter, ridin' my pony on a cattle drive.

Stealing a young girl's heart,

just like Gene and Roy.

Singin' those campfire songs,

I should've been a cowboy.

Maybe I ought to cut him some slack.

He is from Connecticut. He did go to those fancy schools. Andover. Ivy League. UT-Law did turn him down.

The Crawford Coward is one of the handful of people in my 54 years that I've had the privilege of hating. As much of a clown as I am, I find it difficult to lighten up and laugh at the psycho. But you got me good with this one. Pure genius. Thanks!
