This Fire album at
Paula Cole's, "Where Have All the Cowboys Gone?"
The Lyrics:
Where is my John Wayne?
Where is my Prarie Son?
Where is my Happy Ending?
Where have all the cowboys gone?
The song is about a woman who wants more than what she got when she married her man. The 1st and 2nd verses dwell into that her husband does a lot (such as work on the tractor and share lemonade together). The bridge is where the song goes even more down with the husband not recognizing his wife and the 3rd verse show that the husband lost interest by drinking beer with his buddies and the wife doing the chores and seeing that her happy ending just ended as she sees her husband the cowboy ride into the sunset.
