SS: THE LIVES OF THE COWBOYS......brought to you by Santa Fe Brand Bandanas.....the neckerchief that doubles as a napkin, a tourniquet or a mask for robberies.....and now the Lives of the Cowboys.


GK: Nice night. Feels like spring is coming on.

TR: Yeah. Could be.

GK: Thinking about heading to town.

TR: Oh? What for?

GK: There’s a singing contest in town.

TR: Oh boy.

GK: Offering big cash prizes.

TR: Uh huh.

GK: Vocal duet contest. I was thinking of entering. If I can find a partner. Wouldn’t need to be a good singer. I can carry it myself. Just need someone to sort of hum along to qualify as a duet.

TR: No thanks.

GK: Aw come on Dusty.

TR: Huh uh.

GK: Just give it a try.

TR: Nossir.

GK: (STRUMS, SINGS): Today I passed you on the street
And my heart fell at your feet
I can't help it if I'm still in love with you
— Come on, Dusty.

TR: No thanks.

GK: Somebody else stood by your side
And you looked so satisfied
I can't help it if I'm still in love with you

TR: Don’t look at me.

GK: A picture from the past came slowly stealing
As I brushed your arm and stood so close to you
And suddenly I got that old time feeling
I can't help it if I'm still in love with you......

TR: No, sir. I seen that movie already. (THEME)
