Lyrics Bruce Springsteen – Western Stars

Bruce Springsteen – Western Stars words

I wake up in the morning,
just glad my boots are on
Instead of empty in the whispering grasses
Down the Five at Forest Lawn
On the set, the makeup girl brings me
two raw eggs and a shot of gin
Then I give it all up for that little blue pill
That promises to bring it all back to you again

 
Ride me down easy,
ride me down easy, friend
Tonight the western stars are shining bright again
Here in the canyons above Sunset, the desert don’t give up the fight
A coyote with someone’s Chihuahua in its teeth
skitters ‘cross my veranda in the night
Some lost sheep from Oklahoma
sips her Mojito down at the Whiskey Bar
Smiles and says she thinks she remembers me
from that commercial with the credit card

 
Hell, these days there ain’t no more, now there’s just again
Tonight the western stars are shining bright again

 
Sundays I take my El Camino,
throw my saddle in and go
East to the desert where the charros,
they still ride and rope
Our American brothers cross the wire
and bring the old ways with them
Tonight the western stars are shining bright again

 
Once I was shot by John Wayne,
yeah, it was towards the end
That one scene’s bought me a thousand drinks,
set me up and tell it for you, friend

 
Here’s to the cowboys, and the riders in the whirlwind
Tonight the western stars are shining bright again
And the western stars are shining bright again
Tonight the riders on Sunset are smothered in the Santa Ana winds
The western stars are shining bright again
C’mon and ride me down easy, ride me down easy, friend
‘Cause tonight the western stars are shining bright again

 
I woke up this morning just glad my boots were on
