  • Song Lyrics:
    Here's a song about every cowboy's real first love. It's not his horse, it's not his girl and it's not his pick-up truck. Where have I heard that before? I sing this song a little different everywhere I go. This is the way them ol' boys down in Texas like to hear it.

    I was born and raised way out west
    But the thing I like 'bout livin' here best
    It ain't the mountains, the valleys, the hats or the boots
    It's havin' plenty of guns and something to shoot

    We got shotguns and sixguns; got a shitload of guns
    An' shootin varmints and critters is a shitload of fun
    I don't care about the money; I don't care about the loot
    Give me Jack Daniel's whiskey and something to shoot

    Now there's a whole herd of elk right there in a line
    But it's a pain in the ass to shoot 'em one at a time
    And I'm way below quota; I've had a bad day
    Boy, what I wouldn't give for just one hand grenade

    I don't care about the future; I don't care about the past
    As long as I've got some creatures to blast
    We got deer, we got elk, we got ol' owls that hoot
    And when I've killed them all, they'll be Yankees to shoot

    Dont'cha tailgate me, son; get off my back
    I got a thirty-ought-six right here in the rack
    And this ain't New Jersey; we don't honk, we don't yell
    And if you touch that bumper, I'll blow you to hell

    Everybody sing along with me now...

    I was born and raised way out west
    And the thing that I like 'bout livin' here best
    It ain't the mountains, the valleys, the hats or the boots
    It's havin' plenty of guns and something to shoot
    It's havin' plenty of guns and something to shoot
    (Stavro Arrgolus)
