From tumble weeds to wanted posters, Miranda Lambert reveals her inner Texan self in “If I Was a Cowboy” that released today (October 15th). The 37 year-old country music star uses imagery to paint a picture of her as a thriving cowboy, stating, “If I was a cowboy, I’d be the queen.”
If I was a cowboy, I'd be wild and free
Rollin' around these towns like tumbleweeds
I'd be a legend at loving and leaving
Nipping on a whiskey and numbing up my feelings
You thought the West was wild but you ain't saddled up with me
If I was a cowboy, I'd be the queen
The song is accompanied by a music video that gives visual to just this. Throughout the video are scenes of Lambert saddling up and tending to her horses.
“If I Was a Cowboy” was co-written with friend of Lambert, Jesse Erasure, whom she met when doing the remix of “Tequila Does” which was released in August of this year.
