Last Of The Singing Cowboys
by The Marshall Tucker Band

In the corner of dark bar room
Sat an ole' cowboy singin' western tunes
Singin' songs he learned as a child
All about the West back when it was wild
He said he came from down Texas way
The cowboys were tough
The women the same way
Said he was a star back in '31
Hollywood had liked him for some songs that he had done

He's the last of the singin' cowboys
Singin' songs of inspiration and joy
Yippie Yi Yo, Yippie Ay Aye
He took a break, just to chug him down a beer
C'mon folks holler out the songs you'd like to hear
If I know one, I know a million tunes
I'm not up here playin' for me
This is all just for you
And then he bragged on the Stinson hat that he wore
Said it was the finest made since the war
And he won the silver buckle ridin' on a cow
And as he laughed he said
I'll bet you're wonderin' how?

He's the last of the singin' cowboys
Singin' songs of inspiration and joy
Yippie Yi Yo, Yippie Ay A ye

And after three hours or maybe more
A lady grabbed his arm
And showed him to the door
The bartender said, "he's blind, you see
Don't tell him the only audience he had was you and me"

'Cause he's the last of the singin' cowboys
Singin songs of inspiration and joy
Yippie Yi Yo, Yippie Ay A ye

barrys

Hot damn, That's a great analogy.

Michael J. Cronin

So rap acts are in the R&R Hall of Fame, but not the Tucker boys, WTF is up with that?

Chris B

@barrys It has everything to do with it. Not just rap, though. Lame pop acts like Madonna & Prince get in & MTB hasn't. If it were called American Music HOF, sure, but Rap isn't Rock & Roll. I can see why people get annoyed by it.

barrys

What the heck does rap have to do with the Marshall Tucker Band? Sure, they deserve to be in the Hall of Fame, but there is no rap group keeping them out.
Some of us like both.

Andy Romejko

So damn sad loved MTB

thanx WP-- I believe it was Rolling Stone magazine who said (at least while Toy was alive) MTB never put out a bad album.
