Jesse went away last summer, a couple of months ago
After all our time together, it was hard to see her go
She called me right up when she arrived, asked me one more time to come
Or livin on an LA freeway, Aint my kinda havin fun

I think Id rather be a cowboy
I think Id rather ride the reigns
I think Id rather be a cowboy
Then to lay me down and love the ladys chains

We were just beginnin, it was such an easy way
Layin back up in the mountains, makin songs for summer days
She got tired of pickin daisies, cookin my meals for me
She can live the life she wants to, yes, its alright with me

I think Id rather be a cowboy
I think Id rather ride the reigns
I think Id rather be a cowboy
Then to lay me down and love the ladys chains

Id rather live on the side of a mountain
Than wander through canyons of concrete and steel
Id rather laugh with the rain and the sunshine
Then lay down my sun down in some starry field

Oh, but I miss her in the morning, when I awake alone
The absence of her laughter, is a cold and empty sound
But her memory always makes me smile, and I want you to know
I love her yes I love her, just enough to let her go

I think Id rather be a cowboy
I think Id rather ride the reigns
I think Id rather be a cowboy
Then to lay me down and love the ladys chains

I think Id rather be a cowboy
I think Id rather ride the reigns
I think Id rather be a cowboy
Then to lay me down and love ladys chains

In the chorus: It's "I'd rather ride the range", not "reigns. And "lay me down in love in lady's chains".
