Song Meaning
Verse 1
I have always had my heroes
I've loved a lot of legends
Many men in my mind are riding tall
But my cowboy hero hat's off
To the man who rode a donkey
He's the greatest cowboy of them all
Verse 2
He loves all His little doggies
He speaks to them kind and gentle
And He'll lift up any maverick that falls
He sees every stray that's scatters
Like he's the only one that matters
He's the greatest cowboy of them all
Verse 3
Once He rode into the sunset
Of some returning sunrise
He'll call up all the riders in the sky
I'll get my roll together
Getting ready for that roundup
That winds up where old cowboys never die
The trail He rides is narrow
But it's straighter than an arrow
And He rides point for all the great and small
He will take us through the wire
On to that plane that's higher
He's the greatest cowboy of them all
Verse 4
Once He rode into the sunset
Of some returning sunrise
He'll call up all the riders in the sky
I'll get my roll together
Getting ready for that roundup
That winds up where old cowboys never die
The trail He rides is narrow
But it's straighter than an arrow
And He rides point for all the great and small
He will take us through the wire
On to that plane that's higher
He's the greatest cowboy of them all
Verse 5
He's the greatest cowboy of them all
