“The Wandering Cowboy (III)”

Keywords: loneliness love death nonballad cowboy
Found in: US

Description

Singer has no home, no one to love him. He's wandering down the trail, coming to the end of his life, and thinking the only home he will ever find is "on some other shore"

Notes

Darn near no plot at all, even thinner than "Wandering Cowboy (II)," and depressing besides. I index it solely to distinguish it from the other "Wandering Cowboy" songs. - PJS
