Cowboys Of The Sea (Springsteen Bruce)

They ride beneath the waves at 20,000 leagues On stallions stitched to seaweed strands So smiling, so smiling They herd the fishes of the deep They ride for you and me They ranch the rich and the sunken soil At the bottom of the sea In the dead of night, alive in sleep I hear them calling me Them deep sea desperadoes Them midnight maelstrom freaks The cowboy of the sea So on wings of sleep I pierce the deep And ride like a hurricane At midnight still I paid my bill And turned my back on the land With the help of Old Paint, that seaweed nag It's just Jesse James and me We ride the depths and rob the banks At the bottom of the sea With a seaman's grip on navigation And some fired, hired hands We set forth to confront the nation And lend a cowboy's hand We do the Dolphins' Dance duet My mermaid babe and me Then I ride of into the blue sunset At the bottom of the sea And with the seaman's grip on submarining And some aqualung outlaws Our guns are made of solid dreamin' And bullets from a broken cause And with hand held high to touch the sky A good Texas Ranger I'll beBut sometimes I feel like a lone stranger 'Midst the cowboys of the sea Oh and men above he cannot make love He's got to rape his mother the sea And because of his greed We're a vanishing breed We cowboys of the sea
