The Lyrics

Johnny D first used this title and wrote a great parody with an archaeological theme....I thought this new theme might sound logical, if not archaic
I've been workin' these yards so long
Fixin' up lawns gone wrong
Takin' weedy whacks at the crabgrass in cracks of driveways
Where muscle's the name of the game
A real dirty job, but the money's good, can't complain
I'm spreadin' loads of fertilizin'
That I haul in my Horizon
And I gotta' be where the birds are crappin' on me

I'm a Limestone Cowboy
Plantin' grass and flowers for the high class with a lotta' dough
I'm a Limestone Cowboy
Snappin' hand hedge trimmers, while the boss gets to ride and mow
Then, layin' out a walk of flagstone

Run the sprinklers when it don't rain
On my ankle I got a sprain
But, the owners wife eases the pain, dressed in her bikini
Makes me dream what I'd like to do
If my name was Francois, and I had me a million or two
There'd be no loads of fertilizin'
Cadillacs, no old Horizon
But, I gotta' be where the birds are crappin' on me

Just a Limestone Cowboy
Plantin' grass and flowers for the high class with a lotta' dough
Just a Limestone Cowboy
Snappin' hand hedge trimmers, while the boss gets to ride and mow
Then, layin' out a walk of flagstone

FADE

I'm a Limestone Cowboy
Plantin' grass and flowers for the high class with a lotta' dough
