C. W. McCall - Four Wheel Cowboy Lyrics




Four wheel cowboy
Four wheel cowboy
Four wheel cowboy
Jeepin' down to Santa Fe

Well, Denver town an' I'm outta the chute
Foot in the gas an' a hole in my boot
And I'm outbound, yeah
Gonna see my momma in Santa Fe
I'm over the Hump and I'm on my way
I'm southbound

Three hundred miles to Santa Fe
Got a momma to see or the Devil to pay
Gonna be there by the break of day
And I'm southbound
Three hundred miles to Santa Fe
Got a momma to see or the Devil to pay
Gonna be there by the break of day
And I'm southbound

Now this ol' Jeep needs a coat a' paint
But she makes up for what I ain't
She got feelin'
I only know one thing fer sure
This pony a' mine don't need no spurs
She's squealin'

Four wheel cowboy
Four wheel cowboy
Four wheel cowboy
Jeepin' down to Santa Fe

Well, Texaco's open in Trindad
I didn't stop for gas but I wished I had
'Cause I could use some
They's a bunch a' wild women in Walsenburg
They all make love like a buffalo herd
I wish I knew one

Two hundred miles to Santa Fe
Gonna be there by the break of day
Got a momma to see or the Devil to pay
And I'm southbound
Two hundred miles to Santa Fe
Gonna be there by the break of day
Got a momma to see or the Devil to pay
And I'm southbound

Rattlin' down off a' Raton Pass
Glorieta Hill like a sheet a' glass
And I'm slippin'
Pedalin' down past Pecos town
My go foot up and my stop foot down
I'm slidin'

Four wheel cowboy
Four wheel cowboy
Four wheel cowboy
Jeepin' down to Santa Fe

Now Momma's just like this here ol' Jeep
She's tough and fast and she runs real cheap
And she's drivin'
Well, sun comin' up in New Mexico sky
Got a burr in my saddle and a fire in my eye
An' I'm flyin'

Fifteen miles to Santa Fe
Gonna be there by the break of day
Got a momma to see or the Devil to pay
And I'm southbound
Fifteen miles to Santa Fe
Gonna be there by the break of day
Got a momma to see or the Devil to pay
And I'm southbound

C'mon now, Paint
We almost there
Only one more mile, honey
We comin' Momma
Here we come
Can'tcha see us comin' Momma?
We comin'!
Only one more mile, Momma!
We stuck into four wheel drive, baby!
Here we come!
Whoo!

    I used to drive this route so often... I remember there was a giant wreck on Glorieta Pass one winter morning on the way to school, and this truck driver behind us was standing on top of his cab watching the traffic, and he watched the wreck for us while my sister & I built "snowmen" on the guardrail, until he saw the traffic startin to move and told us as such.

    Drop Bill a card and say thanks he is getting up there in years and I am sure would get a kick out of knowing you still like his and Chip Davis's songs. Check out my CW videos made in around Ouray and the Crispy Critter pictures were provided by the family of the AL from Al's Conico

    Use to sing this in Aus, after a good contract, :Well, I'm Darwin town and I'm out off the shute, got tank full of diesel and hole in my boot and I'm south bound, yeah, Melbourne town.  (4.300Km) Oh shti, those were the years. Nothing beats the red dirt.

    Hey!!...Thanks bunches Brent for posting and sharing this 'little heard' tune from C W., that unfortunately wasn't a big hit for him, but did manage to make the country charts, and reach a 'low' #88 back in 1976...This is my 1st time hearing it...and I like it!...Have a great week my friend, and Take Care! Lil' Miss Elizabeth :)

    the winner

    @Muzikgirl67 Glad you like it Elizabeth. Thanks for giving this one a listen. C.W. definitely had a style all his own. Hope you have a great week too! -Brenty
