Cowboy Logic (Murphey Michael Martin)

There's a great American hero, we all look up to When the times are hard and the chips are down He knows just what to do Now a cowboy's got a set of rules that he lives by day to day If you ask for his advice, he'll more than likely say If it's a fence, mend it, if it's a dollar bill, spend it Before if burns a hole down in them jeans It it's a load, truck it, if it's a punch, duck it If she's a lady, treat her like a queen That's cowboy logic, every cowboy's got it It's in the way he lives his life and the songs he sings That's cowboy logic, every cowboy's got it He's got a simple solution to just about anything If it's a job, do it, put your back in to it. Cause a little bit of dirt's gonna wash off in the rain If it's a horse, ride it, if it hurts, hide it Dust yourself off and get back on again That's cowboy logic, every cowboy's got it It's in the way he lives his life and the songs he sings That's cowboy logic, every cowboy's got it He's got a simple solution to just about anything An old cowboy and a young buckaroo were workin', ridin' fence The old hand was testin' the kid on his skill and common sense He said, "Son, if you seen three men in a pick-up truck Dressed alike from boot to hat Could you tell which one was the real cowboy just from where he sat?" The kid scratched his head awhile and then he said "Well, there ain't no way to know" The old hand grinned and then he said "Kid, you've still got a ways to go The real cowboy's the one in the middle He ain't there just by fate Cause first he don't have to drive And then he don't have to mess with the gate" That's cowboy logic, every cowboy's got it It's in the way he lives his life and the songs he sings That's cowboy logic, every cowboy's got it He's got a simple solution to just about anything He's got a simple solution to just about anything
