Show her a good time
make her think she's number one
treat her nicely
until the deed is done
Dressed to kill
Carry your gun to the poker game
Just lie still
They don't need to know your name

Cowboys never cry
They only ride off in the sunset and they're gone
They don't know why
But the cowboy carries on

You wear a uniform
though you said you never could
Secret handshakes
though you said you never would
Dressed to kill
Carry your gun to the poker game
Just lie still
They don't need to know your name

Cowboys never cry
They only ride off in the sunset and they're gone
They don't know why
But the cowboy carries on

Stuck in a movie
you once saw on TV
Living-room heroes
from the 1970's
Now the doctor's here
it's just a waiting game
Just lie still
They don't need to know your name

Cowboys never cry
They only ride off in the sunset and they're gone
They don't know why
But the cowboy carries on
