Today is a real boring day so I started listing all the Dead's "Cosmic Cowboy" song from the 70's so I can learn them since I love country/cowboy songs. Here's the list so far tell me if I've forgotten any.
Code: Select all
Me & My Uncle, Mexicali Blues, El Paso, Jack Straw   Big Iron, Me & Bobby McGee, Loser, Deal, Big River, Big Railroad Blues, Mama Tried
. Thanks for the help.

my personal favorite "Black Throated Wind", maybe a little more highway than cowboy, but trucker/cowboy, same guy different rides.

Definitely Dire Wolf, Cumberland, Dark Hollow

and some that seem kind of iffy: Brown Eyed Woman, Peggy O, Minglewood, Rider, southern states in the name (Tennessee Jed, Alabama Getaway, Mississippi Half Step), Chuck Berry songs (Johnny B. Goode and Promised Land), BIODTL

There is a show from the 70s where Billy is late and Mickey is on hiatus and they do a bunch of old country cowboy tunes....

I'll see if I can locate it.

I dunno... a lot of these are gambler songs, hobo songs, traveling songs, robber songs, prison songs, but very few would I call cowboy songs, probably just Mexi, MAMU, Big Iron and El Paso... and Cardboard Cowboy!

Cardboard Cowboy? I've never heard/heard of that song. What CD is it on?

Cardboard Cowboy is a Phil song from '66 that lasted throughout that year. It was released on a bonus CD that came with Phil's book. Although it can be heard on live shows from that year.
