Ain't A-Gonna Be No Cowboy


(punk song on the guitar)

I'm used to ramblin' 'round an' 'round
Can't tell you 'bout all the shit I've found
And now I'm stuck in this no-good town
But at least,

I ain't a-gonna be no cowboy
Ain't a-gonna be no cowboy
Ain't a-gonna be no cowboy
Anymore! ! !

Now I've spent plenty of time with fat ole hicks
They always act like the biggest dicks
Slap their women 'round just for kicks
But,

I ain't a-gonna be no cowboy
Ain't a-gonna be no cowboy
Ain't a-gonna be no cowboy
Anymore! ! !

They're tryin' keep ignorance and bigotry alive
With all their neo-fascist redneck jive
They kiss their guns an' shoot their wives
But,

I ain't a-gonna be no cowboy
Ain't a-gonna be no cowboy
Ain't a-gonna be no cowboy
Anymore! ! !

My life's always been a Hank Williams song
Can't say the number of girls I've done wrong
Our relationships have never lasted too long
But,

I ain't a-gonna be no cowboy
Ain't a-gonna be no cowboy
Ain't a-gonna be no cowboy
Anymore! ! !

I got me a dorm and I'm a-goin' to school
I'll do my best to follow all 'em rules
Now I'm playin' my cards very cool,
Cuz,

I ain't a-gonna be no cowboy
Ain't a-gonna be no cowboy
Ain't a-gonna be no cowboy
Anymore! ! !

Now I'm a good ole college boy
Gonna get me an education, oh joy
Let all 'em smart girls use me as a sex toy,
Yeehaw! ! !

I ain't a-gonna be no cowboy
Ain't a-gonna be no cowboy
Ain't a-gonna be no cowboy
Anymore! ! !

(kiss my ass, rednecks, yeah! ! !)

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
