Troubles For A Cowboy Hat

Drew James © 2010

 

I'm going back to Texas where I came from

I'm gonna leave this New York City far behind

This big town left me flat

Now I ain't never coming back

I'm gonna trade my troubles for a cowboy hat

 

I had a dream that once did not seem crazy

A boyhood dream that I just had to chase

I wasn't so much out for fame and fortune

It was more like trying to win the human race

 

But sometimes dreams don't end the way you wanted

Sometimes things just don't go as planned

Happiness is only where you find it

And I guess sometimes it takes a moving van

 

(Chorus)

 

I landed here with hope and expectations

I felt I had the whole world at my feet

But when they turned the bright lights out on Broadway

I could see that it was just another street

 

There's so many people in Manhattan

Seven million call this island home

But somehow out there on those crowded sidewalks

I get lonelier than I've ever known

 

(Chorus)

 

Maybe I wasn't meant to be successful

Maybe I'm just naïve and confused

But I could never call myself a winner

When it meant someone else had to lose

 

So if you're ever out in New York City

As you walk beneath that beautiful skyline

Maybe you can keep an eye out for me

There's a dream I lost there maybe you can find

 

(Chorus)

This big town left me flat

Now I ain't never coming back

I'm gonna trade my troubles for a cowboy hat

I'm gonna trade my troubles for a cowboy hat
