What Cowboys Do

Donahew, Casey
Broken bones and broken hearts
And I've had my shoulder torn apart
But it nothing like the pain I felt when I lost you
Honky-tonks and short brown checks
And all those late nights I regret
And I left you all alone crying wondering why I lay it all on the line

I've earned scars and I've earned buckles
Been in the chutes with blood on my knuckles
I've driven all night long trying to make a rodeo
I'm as strong as a freight train just as steady
Crack the gates you know I'll be ready
And I'm gonna hang on until the ride is through
Cause that's what cowboys do

Worn out duly full of whiskey dents
And memories of the times we spent
A million miles of black top that never lead me home to you
Eight seconds of pain and fame
And these thoughts of you drive me insane
I left you all alone crying wondering why I lay it all on the line

I've earned scars and I've earned buckles
Been in the chutes with blood on my knuckles
I've driven all night long trying to make a rodeo
I'm as strong as a freight train just as steady
Crack the gates you know I'll be ready
And I'm gonna hang on until the ride is through
Cause that's what cowboys do

One day when the glory's gone
And I've got no strength to carry on
I'll realize the only thing I should have held on to is you

I've earned scars and I've earned buckles
Been in the chutes with blood on my knuckles
I've driven all night long trying to make a rodeo
I'm as strong as a freight train just as steady
Crack the gates you know I'll be ready
And I'm gonna hang on until the ride is through
Cause that's what cowboys do
That's what cowboys do

Broken bones and broken hearts
