Monday Mixtape: where have all the cowboys gone?

Whenever a song inspires the ultimate question at the yeah write weekly writing challenge, I find it hard to get it out of my head. So when I saw this week’s question, I knew my mixtape wouldn’t be complete without including this tune.

“Where Have All the Cowboys Gone?” by Paula Cole

Now that THAT’S out of the way, let’s use other song titles to speculate the whereabouts of all the cowboys. Perhaps, after driving cattle across many miles, the cowboys were eager to return to civilization.

“Boys are Back in Town” by Thin Lizzy

Maybe after being surrounded only by cattle and other men on the dusty plains, the cowboys wanted to head to the beach and have fun where there are “two girls for every boy.”

“Surf City” by Jan and Dean

Wait – did you mean those poseurs wearing brand new ten-gallon hats and polished cowboy boots? They snuck off to the restroom to light up.

“Smokin’ in the Boys’ Room” by Mötley Crüe

Of course, where else would they be?

“Home on the Range” performed by Roy Rogers

It’s Day 23 of the NaBloPoMo/Nano Poblano/NoMo challenges!
