    Default Musical References for Page 7

    On page 7 in the text we have "hard hunting days followed by crazy honky-tonk nights". "Hard Days and Honky Tonk Nights" is a song by Earl Thomas Conley, from the album, "Live at Billy Bob's Texas".

    In the center of the page, "never would she have wanted him to grow up to be a cowboy" I believe is referencing "Mama Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys".

    Default Musical References for Page 9

    The words, "pack it up and follow" can be found in lyrics from two songs:
    Joe Wilson's "Seattle" and Texas Tornado's "Grande Vida".

    The words, "Go West" provided the title for several bands' songs. Those who used this as a title were, The Village People, Brooks and Dunn, The Pet Shop Boys, and The Cult.

    Default Musical References for Page 15

    The text on page 15 begins with, "Lonely was the cowboy way." The Virginia Coalition wrote a song called "Lonely Cowboy". Another song titled "Hell Yeah: Cowboy Way" was co-written by a whole slew of people. It has a line in it that says, "it's just a cowboy's way", and it also has another line in it that says, "somewhere down in Texas".

    Default Musical References for Page 17

    My favorite musical reference is from page 17, and it reads, "time may seem to stand still". It makes me think of Rush's song, "Time Stand Still", which really has nothing to do with cowboys. But it is a good song.

    This section is titled, "Cowboy Hat", and this same title is a song by Nickelback. There is also a song titled "This Cowboys's Hat" but Chris Ledoux, which mentions someone named "Tex". Another song titled "Cowboy Hat" is by a group called That Dog.

    Default Musical References on Page 29

    The word "cowpoke" appears on page 29. It is the title of a song by Hank Williams, Jr. In the lyrics of this song, the places Cheyenne, Douglass, and Prescott are mentioned. All three of these are places in Arizona. Cheyenne is also a place in Wyoming.

    The title of this section is "Branding Irons". There is a song by the same name by Nightwatchmen.

    Hey, Genetic.... you are rockin' girl. There is a music connection. There are also a ton of Railroad songs. Could our cowboy be an outlaw?

    In a way I would say. More of an underground person, or counted as an out law but didn't do the crime.
