Seven hundred head of cattle on an old forgotten trail
Six cowboys and one old man in another day of hell
 Chuckwagon lagging behind from the strain of a broken wheel
The only thing to look forward to was a campfire and a meal
 Asleep beneath an open sky with just the stars above their heads
A saddle for a pillow and some sagebrush for a bed
 Waking up tomorrow was merely down by chance 
Back when the west was wild and cowboys didn't dance 

When cowboys didn't dance 
Didn't wear designer shirts
When their hearts were filled with memories  Their bodies filled with hurt
They would sit around the campfire and exchange a piercing glance
Back when the west was really wild and cowboys didn't dance 

More coffee from an old tin cup, more sweat upon the brow
 Another day of chasing that same old lonely cow
With every new horizon began a brand new day
 Thirteen hundred miles to go as they slowly made their way
 Across the plains of Texas and through the Colorado snow
 Final destination, Blackfoot, Idaho 

When cowboys didn't dance 
Didn't wear designer shirts
When their hearts were filled with memories  Their bodies filled with hurt
They would sit around the campfire and exchange a piercing glance
Back when the west was really wild and cowboys didn't dance 

When cowboys didn't dance 
Didn't wear designer shirts
When their hearts were filled with memories  Their bodies filled with hurt
They would sit around the campfire and exchange a piercing glance
Back when the west was really wild and cowboys didn't dance 

 Seven hundred head of cattle on an old forgotten trail
Five cowboys and one old man in another day of hell
