Lyrics:

Cold gray buildings where a hill should be.
Steel and concrete closin' in on me.
City faces haunt the places I used to roam.
Cowboy, cowboy - can't run, can't hide.
Too late to fight now - too tired to try ...

Song Ratings/Reviews
 
Cowboy
(4.0 / 4.0)
Thomas R. Enroth
(4.0 / 4.0)
Out of all the Nilsson songs I've heard, no other song displays such utterly stunning vocal dynamics. Harry's voice modulation on the chorus quite simply gives me chills every time I listen to it. The way he starts out at almost a whisper and builds to the crescendo of "Can't run/Can't hide/It's too late to fight now?" is worth the price of admission for Nilsson Sings Newman.
Joseph Skade
(4.0 / 4.0)
Starting pretty much acapella (just the wind as backing) Nilsson's voice is gentle and world weary- as the piano comes in the voice takes off in a flight hopeless passion. Totally stunning. This version leaves the original standing. What a voice.
