ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL lyrics - This Old Cowboy

ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL
"This Old Cowboy"

Well I'm sittin' down in San Anton'
Waiting on an eight o'clock train
You know, My woman left me here last night
Things ain't been quite the same
I gotta get on up to Dallas
And tie up a few loose ends
Gotta work a week make a hundred dollars
Get on the road again

So I don't want you to think
That you're the first one
To leave me out here on my own
'Cause this ain't gonna be the first time
This ol' cowboy spent the night alone

Hit me

Now I've been a fool but a bigger fool I can't remember when I've been
Just to open up my heart
And let you walk right in
Now there's one thing in this life
It ain't hard for me to do
As soon as I kiss the lips of another woman
I'm gonna forget all about you

So I don't want you to think
That you're the first one
To leave me out here on my own
No this ain't gonna be the first time
This ol' cowboy spent the night alone

[Solo]

If you wrote all the woman's names down I know
And let me pick one out
There wouldn't be one in the whole darn bunch
I'd give a hoot about

So I don't want you to think
That you're the first one
To leave this ol' boy out here on his own
'Cause this ain't gonna be the first time
This ol' cowboy spent the night alone

No this ain't gonna be the first time
This ol' cowboy spent the night alone
