A Cowboy On The Moon

and i have visions
like scars are in the sky
boiling water is running from your eye
and all our trouble
cannot be gone too soon
a cowboy on the moon
and i am stupid
i clutter up my mind
i'm always sorry
for somebody left behind
and i will write you
when i can find the time
a cowboy on the moon

when i was little
we gathered round the set
remote controls
were not invented yet
an historic moment
and now i have two pets
a cowboy on the moon
the blessed buttons
and the sacred sandwich
a happy hamper
in which to put my clothes
a texas spaceman
and a boy named buzz
a cowboy on the moon
