I wish I was a cowboy
In some forgotten western flick
Riding down a valley
Wowing gals with tricks
Playing an organ in the night
When the stars are out
And the town is quiet
Pouring out my troubles
To my friend-John,the barkeep.

I wish I was a farmer
Living in the countryside
A peaceful life
A beautiful wife
And Rex,the labrador
By my side.
Work in the fields hard all day
A delicious meal later
Hitting the hay.

I wish I was a country singer
In a long black overcoat
Travelling from town to town
Singing songs I wrote
Not a care in the world
Pleasing people young and old

I wish I wasn’t me
Struggling to come to terms
With my reality
Insecurities killing me
Sorrow anew filling me
Unkind words leaving me
A little dead each day.
