WESTERN STARS



I wake up in the morning
Just glad my boots are on
Instead of empty in the whispering grasses
Down the Five at Forest Lawn

On the set the makeup girl brings me
Two raw eggs and a shot of gin
Then I give it all up for that little blue pill
That promises to bring it all back to you again

Ride me down easy, ride me down easy, friend
Tonight the western stars are shining bright again


Here in the canyons above Sunset
The desert don't give up the fight
A coyote with someone's Chihuahua in its teeth
Skitters 'cross my veranda in the night

Some lost sheep from Oklahoma
Sips her Mojito down at the Whiskey Bar
Smiles and says she thinks she remembers me
From that commercial with the credit card

Hell these days there ain't no more, now there's just again
Tonight the western stars are shining bright again


Sundays I take my El Camino
Throw my saddle in and go
East to the desert where the charros
They still ride and rope

Our American brothers cross the wire and bring the old ways with them
Tonight the western stars are shining bright again


Once I was shot by John Wayne
Yeah it was towards the end
That one scene's bought me a thousand drinks
Set me up and I'll tell it for you, friend

Here's to the cowboys, the riders in the whirlwind
Tonight the western stars are shining bright again
And the western stars are shining bright again


Tonight the riders on Sunset are smothered in the Santa Ana winds
And the western stars are shining bright again


Come on and ride me down easy, ride me down easy, friend
'Cause tonight the western stars are shining bright again


I woke up this morning
Just glad my boots were on
