Wild West Songs and Poems

I'm Just a Young Cowboy


by Paul Harwitz


I'm just a young cowboy. I'm just starting out,
With a yip and a holler and a bodacious shout.
I'm just a young cowboy, and I want to say,
Thank God I'm a cowboy on this glorious day!

Everything's new, and nothing is old,
Except for the jokes and the stories I'm told.
I'm good with a catch-rope and I'm good with a horse.

I love working cattle from my saddle, of course.

I'm just a young cowboy, I'm just breathing free.
I don't need no towns or much of humanity.
You go be a doctor, a lawyer, or judge.
From this cowboy life, I'll never budge.

I love the freedom and I love the range.
There's not a single thing that I would change.
I'll never marry, I'll never settle down.
But I'd like to see that pretty new schoolmarm in town.
