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

When 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, yea, 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, and 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

The western stars are shining bright again

C’mon 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
