I’m a cosmic cowboy
A big time player
I like Pantera, Kid Rock, and Slayer
I like Ice-T the rapper I mean
When it comes to drinking I like Jim Beam
I play Wash-burn guitars with a rebel flag
But I don’t wear make-up or dress in drag
I smoke a lot, I’m a whiskey drinker
I ain’t no hick songwriter
I’m a pretty deep thinker
I’m glad you came to see me put on a show
My name is David Allan Coe I came to let you know that..

[Chorus:]
I’ve been trying to have a real good time
Forget about thinking trying to free my mind
I’ve been trying to have a real good time
Forget about thinking trying to free my mind

I own my own limousine and a Cadillac
I got a million dollar tour bus and that’s a fact
I ain’t broke but I ain’t rich
I call women honey not hoe or bitch
I’m into Tanya Tucker, Twisted Brown Trucker
The Allman Brothers Band and Marshall Tucker
I’m not in this for money I do it for fun
And I don’t shoot dope but I will shoot my gun

I ain’t no phony dude
I’m the real thing baby
Just like Rob Zombie just like Slim Shady

[Chorus:]
And I’ve been trying to have a real good time
Forget about thinking trying to free my mind
I’ve been trying to have a real good time
Forget about thinking trying to free my mind

You know I love Uncle Kracker he’s a cool DJ
I like Prince Purple Rain, Hendrix Purple Haze
I like Hank Williams Sr., Hank the third and his dad
Hank Williams Jr. I mean he’s bad
Willie Nelson, Waylon too
I like new grass, bluegrass, and Emmy lou
I like Pete Seeger, Bob Seeger, Motorhead too
Natalie Cole, Bill Monroe, and the Grateful Dead
You know I tried to quit smoking but I might be slipping
I don’t like acid rock but I might be tripping

[Chorus:]
I’ve been trying to have a real good time
Forget about thinking trying to free my mind
I’ve been trying to have a real good time
Forget about thinking trying to free my mind
