You may have the only digital version of the song out there. Would you post it on YouTube (or some place similar)? Would love to hear it again. Know others would too.

If you would like to hear the song "Cowboy" again...

KFAI dedicated an entire show as a tribute to Eddy Arnold on May 17, 2008. The show is archived and can be played on RealPlayer.

Follow this link: http://www.kfai.org/node/11504 . You can listen to the entire show or fast forward to 01:43:20/02:02:00 to listen to "Cowboy".

Still looking for a legal download. Give me a head's up if you've found one.

Enjoy.

Sorry. Streaming for the KFAI show was available for only a few days after the link was posted.

I believe the name is just "Cowboy," and I'm also trying to find the lyrics. I remember almost all of it if you'd like me to try to type it out for you. Somewhere in my mess I still have the LP and will continue to look for it.

Thanks to all who provided information about this song! I have been looking for it since I was just out of college.(1979) I was beginning to think it was a figment of my imagination, so I now know I wasn't hallucinating when I heard it!!

I was subjected to country music as a child. Didn't like much of it then, and don't like much of it now, but I did like this song. The line "and the Kansas City kid is still on the range tryin' to rope a calf" (at least what I thought the lyrics were) has been going through my mind periodically for over 30 years. Now finally I know what the rest of the song sounds like. Thanks Steve for starting this post.

Thanks, Bill. I remember the song vividly and have been looking for years. It seems to me that the version I recall had a line about him riding his stick horse around the back yard. Does anyone else recall this?

I own a 45 rpm copy of the song "Cowboy" by Eddie Arnold and here are the lyrics.
"Cowboy"
The skies are dark and gray
For a week now its been rainin every day
And again,this city kid
Is on the couch still tryin to rope the stray
Well he`s Crockett and He`s Custer
And he`s Peacocks right hand man
He`s tryin to tame the west
But mom don`t seem to understand
And she`s told him to get ready
Cause its for the time to bed
And now he wishes he were free
Cause he was simply born to be
A "Cowboy"
Asleep,he rides the range
On a saddle that has seen its better days
And hear,the coyotes call
They sing the sun to rest as evenin falls
Well,make a pot of coffee boys
So strong you taste the grain
Stretch out on you blanket
As he clears his throat to sing
You keep you eyes upon him
With his Gary Cooper grin
It doesn`t take much sense to see
That he was simply born to be
A "Cowboy"
This concrete city`s fenced him in
Can`t win em all,but he`ll be on his feet again
He`ll ride his fantaces till then
Johnny takes after me
He was simply born to be
A "Cowboy"
The skys are dark and gray
For a week now it`s been rainin every day
And again,this city kid
Is all tucked in and dreamin of the range
A "Cowboy"
A "Cowboy"
I hope that all the words are correct.
