The Lyrics

We're way out here..where the cattle all roam
On the plains,..the coyote's home
Work on a ranch, few trees that branch,
Skies are spacious, Great Barbs Of Wire !

Keep punchin' cows, don't make much money,
Lotta' blue sky..and Man, it's sunny..
Fence posts of steel..lack sex appeal..
Sad cow faces, Great Barbs Of Wire !

Get to town just..once a month
Find a woman,
Really show her she's the one that I want..
Get drunk, fight a punk.
Be brash, then crash,
All of my cash is sunk !

Back to the ranch,..where I'll wrangle a cow
Pitch some baled hay..from the old haymow..
Can't get flirty, until the next "Thirty"
Fixin fences,..Great Barbs Of Wire !

Losin' my senses, Great Barbs Of Wire !
