The Cowboy Rides Away

Lyrics

I knew the stakes were high right from the start
When she dealt the cards I dealt my heart
Now I just found a game that I can't play
And this is where the cowboy rides away

I knew the stakes were high right from the start
When she dealt the cards I dealt my heart
Now I just found a game that I can't play
And this is where the cowboy rides away

And sadly, on June 7, 2014, the cowboy DID ride away from any future touring concerts. I'll miss seeing him in concert. Just hoping he doesn't quit singing new songs and putting out new music. HE IS THE BEST COUNTRY SINGER BY FAR.

Funny how this one took off without any real help from radio. It gets more play now then when it was released. That's why you buy George Strait albums though. Most songs are winners---no t just the singles---an d a lot are classics. This might be the best he ever made.

I Love to listen to George Strait please play This Cowboy Rides Away.
