Midchuck (and relations have written and) sing this song on the Mucat Orchid CD.

It's my transcription. I'm fairly contented with the result but a few errors may still be found.


Wrangling dude

(1) I saw you for the first time
in six or seven years.
I been running all round the country,
you were still right here.
You had two fillies in the hand
any know that's not been new
a strawberry blonde, a strawberry roan
and they're both in love with you.

(2) When you grow up in Montana
you can grow up awful wild
you were always ride alright beside me
when I was still a child.
But you got sick of playing sweethearts
with a girl you knew too well.
I refused to play second fiddle
back behind some Eastern val.

CHORUS: Now you're working for a rancher
way upon the Great Divide.
City girls aren't pretty, horses are,
riding by your side.
Ponies all adore you and the women all do too,
they think that you're a cowboy,
but you're only a wrangling dude.

(3) She smiles in the barroom mirror
as you saunter in the door.
With the shiny new boots, her skintight jeans
she try to waltz you cross the floor.
So you sit beside her at the bar
and you let her buy your beer
telling lies bout the rodeos,
you don't see me standing there.


There's a ranch out in Alberta
where they still brand calves in spring,
they ride the open range and have wild horses
and hear the grey wolf sing.
So you head there in summer,
you say you hear their call
but the living right now is easy
and you still be here come fall

Chorus, repeat last two lines:
yeahl, they tell you you're a cowboy
but you're only a wrangling dude.
