Lyrics to song How a Cowboy Lives by Trent Willmon

He left gravel flying
Tears falling from her eyes
When he got home that evening
He didn't apologize
He left a rose on the table
She let that be enough
She loved him enough to know
How a cowboy loves
Its just how a cowboy loves

She tried to ride it out
But she couldn't keep hanging on
Now he sees her around
But she's never alone
He keeps the storms clouds hidden
Behind the wall of pride
Laughs out loud spits on the ground
That's how a cowboy cries
Its just how a cowboy cries

Unwritten rules
Unspoken words
Never show your hand
Or hang your head
No matter how it hurts

Sometimes you get thrown
But you get back on and ride
That's how a cowboy lives
That's how a cowboy dies

Now he makes his mistakes
They weigh on his soul
His altar is an open sky
A church where no one goes
He knows God understands him
'Cause he made him that way
Silently he makes his peace
That's how a cowboy prays
Its just how a cowboy prays

Sometimes you get thrown
But you get back on and ride
That's how a cowboy lives
