Singing songs that he learned as a child All about the West back when it was wild He said he came from down Texas way The cowboys were tough the women the same way Said he was a star back in `31 When Hollywood liked him For some songs that he had done He`s the last of the singing cowboys Singing songs of desperation and joy Yippie-I-Oh......Yippie-I-Ay.......Yippie-I-Ay He took a break just to chug him down some beer C`mon folks now holler out The songs you`d like to hear And if I know one I know a million or two I`m not just up here playing for me This is all done for you And then he bragged of the stetson hat that he wore Said it was the finest made since the war And I won this silver buckle ridin` on a cow As he laughed he said I bet you`re wonderin` how `Cause I`m the last of the singing cowboys Singing songs of desperation and joy Yippie-I-Oh......Yippie-I-Ay.......Yippie-I-Ay And after three hours or maybe more A lady grabbed his arm and showed him to the door The bartender said he`s blind you see Don`t tell him the only audience He had was you and me `Cause he`s the last of the singing cowboys Singing songs of desperation and joy Yippie-I-Oh......Yippie-I-Ay.......Yippie-I-Ay Yippie-I-Ay
