I told you 'bout living in the U.S. of A. 
Don't you know that I'm a gangster of love 
Let me tell you people that I found a new way 
And I'm tired of all this talk about love 
And the same old story with a new set of words 
About the good and the bad and the poor 
And the times keep on changin' 
So I'm keepin' on top 
Of every fat cat who walks through my door 

I'm a space cowboy 
Bet you weren't ready for that 
I'm a space cowboy 
I'm sure you know where it's at 
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah 

I was born on this rock 
And I've been travelin' through space 
Since the moment I first realized 
What all you fast talkin' cats would do if you could 
You know, I'm ready for the final surprise 
There ain't no way around it 
Ain't nothing to say 
That's gonna satisfy my soul deep inside 
All the prayers and surveyors 
Keep the whole place uptight 
While it keeps on gettin' darker outside 

I'm a space cowboy 
Bet you weren't ready for that 
I'm a space cowboy 
I'm sure you know where it's at 
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah 

I see the show downs, slow downs, lost and found, turn arounds 
The boys in the military shirts 
I keep my eyes on the prize, on the long fallen skies 
And I don't let my friends get hurt 
All you back room schemers, small trip dreamers 
Better find something new to say 
Cause you're the same old story 
It's the same old crime 
And you got some heavy dues to pay 

I'm a space cowboy 
Bet you weren't ready for that 
I'm a space cowboy 
I'm sure you know where it's at 
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
