Mammas don’t let your babies grow up to be cowboys

   What is it about this country that causes old country songs to pop into my head? Hahah, or maybe it’s just the fact that I’m not at home.. wherever that is at this point. Woke up yesterday remembering half of that damn song… but I don’t remember what the dream was about. What causes you to remember things? I don’t know. I’d like someone more intelligent than me to do a study and find out – do we ever really forget things or just push them aside? There’s a lot of things I thought I forgot.. but they always find away back into my mind.. at the most appropriate time? Or just at random.. who knows… I’m not steerin’ this big ole boat – don’t ask me.
 

Mamas, Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys Lyrics

Cowboys ain’t easy to love and they’re harder to hold.
They’d rather give you a song than diamonds or gold.
Lonestar belt buckles and old faded levis,
And each night begins a new day.
If you don’t understand him, an’ he don’t die young,
He’ll prob’ly just ride away.

Mamas, don’t let your babies grow up to be cowboys.
Don’t let ’em pick guitars or drive them old trucks.
Let ’em be doctors and lawyers and such.
Mamas don’t let your babies grow up to be cowboys.
‘Cos they’ll never stay home and they’re always alone.
Even with someone they love.

Cowboys like smokey old pool rooms and clear mountain mornings,
Little warm puppies and children and girls of the night.
Them that don’t know him won’t like him and them that do,
Sometimes won’t know how to take him.
He ain’t wrong, he’s just different but his pride won’t let him,
Do things to make you think he’s right.

Mamas, don’t let your babies grow up to be cowboys.
Don’t let ’em pick guitars or drive them old trucks.
Let ’em be doctors and lawyers and such.
Mamas don’t let your babies grow up to be cowboys.
‘Cos they’ll never stay home and they’re always alone.
Even with someone they love.
