Cowboy Songs List – Songs With Cowboy in the Title


What a better way to celebrate the American cowboy than a list of cowboy songs? Cowboys are horse riding, gun carrying, cowboy hat-wearing, cowboy boots wearing, cattle driving, and tough as nails.

A great day to play cowboy songs is on the 4th Saturday in July – the Day of the Cowboy.
