They didn't have Texans back in the day, used to be Oilers, if they weren't Cowboys, at least in Texas.
He sang this song at the Grammy's with Blake Shelton.

The Waylon and Willie show.

When I was a baby my dad didn't know any lullabys.. So he sang me this.. Per my mom
One of my favorite Waylon and Willie songs :) so true...
Willie is awesome. It doesn't matter how old you are ��
Willie and Waylon are two of my favorites. This song never gets old! I love the sound of Steele guitar that is one of the best features of older country that I love!
I'm kinda of young but i love this music. I hate this new pop crap.
There ain't nothing wrong with a cowboy most settle down some were

Awesome song
You just can't beat Willie, Waylon and the boys...
Cowboys like smokey old pool room.... tha one of my song
I grew up on this music, and still even go back to the older music. My best is sitting around a fire and having this music playing.
You don't have to necessary have wear a cowboy hat to be cowboy I just can't stand them k mart cowboys that has no clue how ride or work around livestock so there's not a thing to be a cowboy I'm proud of my farm roots!!!!
Willie sucks. Waylon was the man.

Raising my children on a healthy dose of cowboy stories. So hard to find those good old childrens' books anymore I so loved growing up.
losgators
Cowboys still exist! I love cowboys! Go to Montana out on the range, go to Argentina, go to the country town I grew up in, lots of cowboys still! All over the world there are cowboys...
CHIPMUNKS!
come to west texas, im sure youll meet a few...
i'm a cowboy
You do have Zep's third album right?
this is on my zeppelin station???
khragthung
I like the song but Cowboys no longer exist, so therefore its fake. Just my opinion. Unless you think wearing a cowboy hat makes you a cowboy.

Okay, I can understand Johnny Cash on The Smiths station given Marr's penchant for rockabilly guitar riffs, but this is ridiculous
