The Cat Empire

The Cat Empire - Voodoo Cowboy

rate me

His mother was a snake

His father was a scarecrow

Born in the desert with his hat on his head

Never missed a shot

Sharp as a Pharaoh

Tequila in the sunrise

The desert was his bed

Now he could dance the barn dance

Like nobody before him

But no woman would take him

Cos his eyes were rather strange

In them you could see the emptiness of the desert

Yellow like a scarecrow

Black like a snake

He was a voodoo cowboy

And he had never found a girl to call his own

On and on and on

That lonely cowboy

But a cowboy's never really

Cowboy's never really alone

He had a horse

Whose name was plenty

And they saw things no man or beast should ever see

Out in the redness

Out in the empty

Where ghost and spirits walk around like you and me

He met a girl

Called Annabelle

And she was just the prettiest thing he'd ever seen

Under a lake at the edge of the world

He met a girl

Walking through the edges of his dreams

He was a voodoo cowboy

And he was following a psychedelic stream

On and on and on

That lonely cowboy

But a cowboy's never really

Cowboy's never really deceived

So they rode in

Under the water

And the sunset made a fire above his head

In search of warmth in search of love

In search of heaven above

But all he felt was cold

And all he touched was wet

But he could see her down a little bit deeper

And all he wanted was to hold her to his chest

So he reached out and she reached out

And he touched her

And she drew him in

And kissed him as he breathed his final breath

Because you see

He was a voodoo cowboy

And he had finally found a girl to call his own

On and on and on

Lucky lucky cowboy

Because cowboy's almost always

Cowboys almost always die alone
