Notes

Well cowboys and canals man they say it just ain't cool
I never paid no attention to no stupid rules
An' I still wear my cowboy boots belt and stetson hat
Out on the tiller or chewing the fat.

When I'm rolling on the water
Fields and clouds passing by
When I'm rolling on the water
Time and memory in my eyes.

Well I don't pay no attention to the folks who laugh at me
I always been my own man always will be
Called my boat the T Bird like the 57 car
Diesel lays a bassline while I'm singing to the stars.

When I'm rolling on the water
Fields and clouds passing by
When I'm rolling on the water
Time and memory in my eyes.

I'm just a cowboy at heart living my dreams living my schemes
I'm just a cowboy at heart chasing the moon humming a tune
I'm just a cowboy at heart.

Well man I love these old canals they sure been good to me
Brought me lots of peace and tranquillity
When I lay my head down and my time it is come
I'll cruise around that old canal that circles round the sun.

When I'm rolling on the water
Time and memory in my eyes
When I'm rolling on the water
Time and memory in my eyes x3
