Skeeter Davis — Broomstick Cowboy lyrics

You're no longer my broomstick cowboy riding the make believe trail
And all my girlish tricks they used to work somehow they now seem to fail
Why couldn't time just slow up why do we have to grow up so soon.

Gone are the days of my broomstick cowboy roping your imaginary steers
It seem just like only yesterday you brushed away my first tears
Now you shy away from my touch as time change just that much so soon.
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/skeeter-davis-broomstick-cowboy-lyrics.html ]
Straddling fences deep around corners playing
Bang bang shoot 'em up hiding in the hay
Time is a thief and a bad old meaner stealing all our games away.

I thought you'd always be my broomstick cowboy
You'd always be my very own
It's funny how time just seems to slip away you don't miss it till it's all gone
Oh, how tall you stay in you've grown into a man so soon.

Oh, how tall you stay in you've grown into a man so soon...
