Faster Horses (The Cowboy and the Poet) - The Hit Crew

He was an old-time cowboy don't you

Understand his eyes were sharp as razor blades

His face was leather tan his toes were pointed

Inward from a-hangin' on a horse he was an old

Philosopher of

 

He was so thin i swear you could have used him

For a whip he had to drink a beer to keep his

Britches on his hips i knew i had to ask him about

The mysteries of life he spit between his boots

And he replied

 

"it's faster horses younger women older whiskey

And more money"

 

He smiled and all his teeth were covered with

Tobacco stains he said "it don't do men no good

To pray for peace and rain peace and rain is just

A way to say prosperity and buffalo chips is

All it means to me "

 

I told him i was a poet i was lookin' for

The truth i do not care for horses whiskey

Women or the loot i said i was a writer my

Soul was all on fire he looked at me an'

He said "you are a liar "

 

"it's faster horses younger women older whiskey

And more money"

 

Well i was disillusioned if i say the least

 

I grabbed him by the collar and i jerked him

To his feet there was something cold and shiny

Layin' by my head so i started to believe the

Things he said

 

Well my poet days are over and i'm back to

Being me as i enjoy the peace and comfort of

Reality if my boy ever asks me what it is that

I have learned i think that i will readily affirm

 

"it's faster horses younger women older whiskey

And more money"

"it's faster horses younger women

 

Older whiskey and more money"

"it's faster horses younger women

 

Older whiskey and more money"

"it's faster horses younger women

 

Older whiskey
