Cute Green Fat Dragon

Singapore Cowboy ~ by Matthew Tan & The Mandarins

Singapore Cowboy

Singapore Cowboy
~ by Matthew Tan
~ Matthew & The Mandarins

I was born half a world from Nashville Tennessee
Where all year long the summer breezes blow
And while my friends are flying kites and planting Bonsai Trees
I got high on Country Radio

It wasn’t long before a song was born inside my heart
And soon I started singing right along
And understanding uncle smiled and gave my first start
By listening to my Shanghaied Country songs

Singapore Cowboy, so far from my home
Bright stars and guitars but none of my own
Singapore Cowboy, where do I belong?
Won't you sing a poor cowboy, another lonely song

I sang my songs in Singapore and crazy as it seems
A distant shore kept calling after me
And ten years from my first guitar I gathered all my dreams
And here I am in Nashville Tennessee

Here are some things I found on the internet.
