Lyrics:

While Tumbleweeds and the Credits Roll
V1
John Wayne movie on a Saturday night, wide eyed by my Daddy's side
Cowboys and outlaws shootin' up the big screen,they had me ridin' on the edge of my seat

But when those bad guys cornered my hero I choked up with a tear in my eye
Daddy leaned over and whispered to me don't worry it'll be alright

Chorus:
Everybody knows how this ends. It's a story that never grows old
The good guys will ride off into that sunset again, while tumbleweeds and the credits roll

V2
I'm all grown up and Dad's gettin' shorter, in his boots and his temper too
He don't have the horses he once did to do the things he wants to do

Finds himself fenced in his front room watchin' westerns all week long
Still an old cowboy at heart he's never lost sight of right from wrong

Repeat Chorus:

Bridge:
Trouble is closing in and the day is running short of light
He's rounding up all he's got he's not going down without a fight

1/2V3
Now I see how bad he's hurtin', I can't hold these tears from my eyes
Through the pain he say's "Don't worry. You'll be all right."

Repeat Chorus
Everybody knows how this ends. No matter how many times the story's told
The good guys will ride off into that sunset again, while tumbleweeds and the credits roll
While tumbleweeds and the credits roll
While tumbleweeds and the credits roll
