Singing Cowboy

Lyrics: Skip Battin, Kim Fowley
Music: Skip Battin, Kim Fowley

Chorus
Gene Autry and Roy Rogers were singin' cowboy men
But I can ride as hard and fast and shoot as straight as them
'Cause I'm a singin' cowboy with a guitar in my hand
Yeah, I'm a singin' cowboy and I'm gonna sing again
Yeah, I'm a singin' cowboy and I'm gonna sing again

I saw the ad in the Rolling Stone
So I called up on the telephone
Hollywood said I could sing a song

Rode the Greyhound south one day
From Stinson Beach and the Frisco Bay
Hollywood said I could sing that day

[chorus]

I saw the line at the studio
There were guys dressed up like a rodeo
Hollywood said I could sing a song
Let's get on with the show

I sang one song it was very strange
No one liked "Home On The Range"
Hollywood hurt me it stung like pain
Oh, didn't it rain

I rode the Greyhound north today
To Stinson Beach and the Frisco Bay
I don't need no Hollywood
I'm coming home to stay

[chorus]
