    "Lavender Cowboy" Lyrics

    He was only a lavender cowboy,
    The hairs on his chest were two,
    But he wished to follow the heroes
    And fight like the he-men do.

    But he was inwardly troubled
    By a dream that gave him no rest,
    That he'd go with his heroes in action
    With only two hairs on his chest.

    First he tried many a hair tonic.
    'Twas rubbed in on him each night.
    But still when he looked in the mirror
    Those two hairs were ever in sight.

    But with a spirit undaunted
    He wandered out to fight,
    Just like an old-time knight errant
    To win combat for the right.

    He battled for Red Nellie's honor
    And cleaned out a holdup's nest
    He died with his six guns a-smoking
    With only two hairs on his chest.
    This song was submitted on November 28th, 2006.
