Lyrics - Cowboys In Hong Kong (As Far As Siam)

Back

Me and some friends who

We been buddies since Boca Raton

Signed on a ship to

Take a trip to old Taiwan

Got as far as Siam

Took it on the lamb

Arrived in Hong Kong with all our money gone

We joined up with a a gang when

We found we couldn't go on

We still remain here

Though we don't belong

That's what they call us

Cowboys In Hong Kong

The stakes were high tonight

We're going to break on through

We're hiding in the tall grass

Waiting for our signal to move

Our friends are inside

They were beaten they were tied

We've got to get them out

Before they blow our cover wide

Some sad GI Joe's

Mind wanders home

Thinks about a girl left behind

We're freedom fighters

And so we say

They like to tell us

That anyway

We still remain here

Though we don't belong

That's why they call us

Cowboys in Hong Kong

There's a girl that he sees

When he's feeling lonely

She'll laugh and say - Ok Joe

When they hold real tight

In the dead of the night

He'll pretend she's from Ohio

Oh - I'm a cowboy in Hong Kong

We're freedom fighters

And so we say

They like to tell us

That anyway

We still remain here

Though we don't belong

That's why the call us

Cowboys in Hong Kong
