Lyrics

Feel like a long-lost cowboy, down in Babylon
Don’t make much sense and I don’t understand
quite what’s going on.
Got champagne taste on a cheap beer budget,
lookin for the bright neon
But it’s always darker on a moonless night, down in Babylon.


CHORUS:
And we’ll go down to Smiley’s Genuine Louisiana Barbeque
And it really would be worth it, to see the expression on his face When he saw me and you.
I don’t know how long since Smiley saw me coming thru his door
Down in Babylon the night light’s bright, the water’s cool,
And the girls adore… amore… he swore, no more.
Dreaming of Babylon,
Cowboy in Babylon


Got hit in the head with a baseball bat,
found the front door to Babylon
Don’t make much sense and I don’t understand what’s going on.
Terry & the Pirates in a dime store novel,
sailing cactus fog into Tucson
A quick draw artist with a loaded gun,
I’m the famous Cowboy from Babylon.


BRIDGE
Is it just me or is there another world,
where anything that’s possible unfurls?
The lovely Nefertiti rules this dream-world, and a cowboy often wonders if he’s imperiled.
Dreaming of Babylon,
Cowboy in Babylon
