All Around Cowboy

(Marty Robbins)

Well, all around cowboy, I’ve won it six years in a row,
All around cowboy means champ of the big rodeo.
I made me some money, I had me some good times,
The falls that I’ve had have been few.
Till a rodeo queen made the all around cowboy
Look like an all around fool!

I was the cowboy that said he would never be roped,
I even bragged how I’d never be branded or broke.
I was doing right well till this blonde, little filly
Rode into my life like a dream,
And the all around cowboy fell head over heels
In love with the rodeo queen.

The moment I looked in her blue eyes I knew I was gone.
I tried to hide them, but the feelings I had were too strong.
She showed the world what an all around cowboy could do.
She showed the world how an all around cowboy
Could look like an all around fool!

She made me feel like a horse without any fire,
Too late I realized, breaking me was her desire.
She rolled me, and raked me with spurs, that left such a hurt.
She left me broken, and she left me crying
Out there in the rodeo dirt.
