I was raised in a cowboy town, with a railroad station, horses, and cattle; I knew everyone there, walked and rode bicycles everywhere, but I never was a real cowboy. My brother Dave was (and is) but I wanted to be so cool and at the time, cowboys were not so cool. I knew a lot of them, and my father had a jewelry store where cowboys would come in and buy rings, and get their watches repaired. And even though I worked on their farms and ranches, I knew I wasn’t really a cowboy. Once I wrote a song for a Kenji Omura record called “I Never was a Cowboy”, just so there’d be no confusion about my background. This New Age Cowboy song is just a little joke about how lots of present-day cowboys live and act. You can fill in the blanks.
