Lyrics
They rode across the silver screen
Rescued damsels from the raging stream
I always thought I'd be a cowboy
Just like Hoppalong, Gene and Roy

I flew a chopper in Vietnam
Rescued soldiers for old Uncle Sam
The men would call me the flying cowboys
Felt just like Hoppalong, Gene and Roy

Bridge: Instrumental

I came home to a foreign land
The nation pulled away it's helping hand
I wondered where were all the cowboys
As I thought of Hoppalong, Gene and Roy

Where have all the cowboys gone
Are our hero's dancing in the bars
Did they leave the dusty trail behind
I wonder where the cowboys are

They rode across the silver screen
Rescued damsels from the raging stream
I always thought I'd be a cowboy
Just like Hoppalong, Gene and Roy
