IMPRESSUM

DUST

Many people have a romantic idea of ​​the life of a cowboy. Long rides, campfire evenings with the guitar, cuddling with horses, drinking whiskey and playing poker in some old smoky saloon and sometimes using the Colt.

 

As so often, this cliché corresponds to the facts in absolutely no way. It's a hard and honest work, 365 days a year, around the clock, 24 hours, 7 days a week. The job leaves scars on the body through injuries, weather, falls, accidents, the loss of animals and many other influences - but also on the soul. Stillborn foals, lambs and calves are not uncommon on the ranch and have to be dealt with. Pictures of injured, torn or euthanized animals burn themselves deep in the soul. 

 

At the end of the day, the cowboy is an endangered species; hard-working men with solid values, showing that  beeing well raised from their parents was their gift from their parents, characterized by prudence, fairness, honesty and compassion, guided each day by a firm belief in their  family and God.

 

Real cowboys are committed to the so-called Cowboy Code and the Code of the West.. Therefore, one should think twice, if one speaks of the sometimes very highly negative afflicted cowboy style, describing rude behaviour.

 

The idea for the lyrics came to Mel Georg during the work with the lawnmower tractor in the summer of 2017. After a long day in the dust, the text was almost complete. During their stay in Nashville in September 2018, Mel and Kristin revisited the song and lovingly reworked it so Rob could sing it in a few weeks later.

V 1:
The cowboys in the movies

Don't tell you the whole story

I'm living proof 

We're not it in for the glory

V 2:

Same thing every morning

Cup of coffee and a smoke

Then it's work until my hands draw blood

And fixin' what is broke

 

Chorus:

This life is hard 

I'm not gonna lie

But cowgirls/cowboys don't cry

This life is hard 

 

Just tryin' to stay alive

But cowgirls/cowboys don't cry

We just get dust in our eyes

V 3:

Every new day in the saddle

Brings a new chance to get trampled

It's not if, it's when you'll break your ass

Yeah every day's a gamble

 

Chorus

 

Bridge:

These scars tell the stories of my life

And I thank God for them every night

Oh these scars they tell the stories of my life

And I thank God for them every night

Chorus

No cowboys don't cry

Cowboys don't cry

We just get dust in our eyes

These scars tell the stories of my life

And I thank God for them every night​
