Mummas dont let your babies grow up to be cowboys by 


Cowboys ain’t easy to love and they’re harder to hold.
They’d rather give you a song than diamonds or gold.
Lonestar belt buckles and old faded levis,
And each night begins a new day.
If you don’t understand him, an’ he don’t die young,
He’ll prob’ly just ride away.

Canon 20D, 50mm prime lense

Mamas, don’t let your babies grow up to be cowboys.
Don’t let ‘em pick guitars or drive them old trucks.
Let ’em be doctors and lawyers and such.
Mamas don’t let your babies grow up to be cowboys.
‘Cos they’ll never stay home and they’re always alone.
Even with someone they love.

Cowboys like smokey old pool rooms and clear mountain mornings,
Little warm puppies and children and girls of the night.
Them that don’t know him won’t like him and them that do,
Sometimes won’t know how to take him.
He ain’t wrong, he’s just different but his pride won’t let him,
Do things to make you think he’s right.

Mamas, don’t let your babies grow up to be cowboys.
Don’t let ‘em pick guitars or drive them old trucks.
Let ’em be doctors and lawyers and such.
Mamas don’t let your babies grow up to be cowboys.
‘Cos they’ll never stay home and they’re always alone.
Even with someone they love.

    ok madwoman- here is a story
    i used to show Quarter Horses and one year, at the year end banquet, i was about 6 months pregnant and my friend was about 7 months pregnant. We got up and sang this song at karaoke. LOL (and no i cant sing, and yes i was sober- never drank while pregnant).
    Excellent image and great song.
    (so i guess a song about babies wont get you a virtual 2×4 to the head….) mwah

  • Good god, I wouldve paid a dime to see that. Youre meant to lull your babies with Mozart and the like not whiney Country Singers. You should have actually sang We gotta get out of this place….couldve had a double meaning hahaaaaaaaaaa.

    MMMMM so if I write of babies and kittens I must be somewhat NORMAL….Ima never gonna do it again in that case lol. xx

    awh, but you just can’t help falling, I’m a sucker for long legs in light blue denim, bandy legs where the horse has been even better. Thanks for the great image and tale x

  • Lol at the bandy legs, Tonys legs are as straight as tree trunks…big tree trunks hahaha. Thanks for the comments, very much appreciated :P

  • Thanks Ran, I dont know why but dark seems the norm for me at the moment, must be a mindset thing perhaps
