Miranda Lambert’s has a new song that comes out Friday (10/15) called “If I Were a Cowboy,” and it takes fans to the Wild West.

The song’s chorus contains the lyrics, “If I was a cowboy I’d be wild and free / Rolling around these towns like tumbleweeds / I’d be living and loving and leaving sipping on whiskey and numbing up my feelings / You thought the West was wild but you ain’t saddled up with me / If I was a cowboy I’d be the queen.”

Miranda also refers to the iconic 1970s song from Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson “Mammas Don’t Ler Your Babies Grown Up To Be Cowboys” with the line, “So mamas if your daughters grow up to be cowboys so what?”

Lambert said of the new song, “I wrote this song with my new friend, Jesse Frasure. We met doing the remix of ‘Tequila Does’ and he and I just got together one day, one afternoon for a write and this is what came out of it. You know, it’s funny, he’s a Detroit boy and I’m an East Texan, but somehow we wrote a song about the Wild West together. So it’s pretty cool.”

Miranda posted on Twitter, “So mamas if your daughters grow up to be cowboys, so what? New Song ‘If I Was A Cowboy’ out Oct 15.”
