Country music star Jon Pardi has released “Ain’t Always the Cowboy” from his upcoming album, Heartache Medication, which will be released on September 27th.

“It was just such an anthem for girls and guys, or for the girls trying to do her own things,” says Jon about “Ain’t Always the Cowboy.” “It’s kind of a leaving song, but a happy leaving song. It’s about going out to chase her dreams, be independent or do her thing. He ain’t mad about it, and I thought that was a really cool outlook of a song and melody; just everything about it was awesome.”

“Ain’t Always The Cowboy” Lyrics

Her hands wrapped up in mine
Tears rollin’ out of her eyes
No messin’ with a made-up mind
Sun settin’ on goodbye
Yeah, it’s hard to believe
It wasn’t me tryin’ to leave this time

It ain’t always the cowboy
That ain’t got a lot of hang around
Ain’t got no settle down in their boots
Gone’s just what they do
That restless, runnin’, searchin’ for somethin’
Leavin’ love in the dust of a midnight Chevrolet
It ain’t always the cowboy that rides away

I’ve never seen over from this side
Never heard lonely get this quiet
Still I can’t keep from smilin’
‘Cause damn that girl can fly

It ain’t always the cowboy
That ain’t got a lot of hang around
Ain’t got no settle down in their boots
Gone’s just what they do
That restless, runnin’, searchin’ for somethin’
Leavin’ love in the dust of a midnight Chevrolet
It ain’t always the cowboy that rides away

A tumbleweed heart, chasin’ that wind
Goin’ too far, wherever that is

It ain’t always the cowboy
That ain’t got a lot of hang around
Ain’t got no settle down in their boots
Gone’s just what they do
That restless, runnin’, searchin’ for somethin’
Leavin’ love in the dust of a midnight Chevrolet
It ain’t always the cowboy that rides away

Rides away
It ain’t always the cowboy
