I'm an [C]Icelandic cowboy
On my [F]Icelandic [C]pony.
I travel [Am]around in the [D]west. [G]
I [C]know all the ways [F]around Snæfells[C]nes,
'Cause that's where my [G]baby [C]stays.
I've [C]been to the east
And I've [F]been to the [C]west.
I've been to the [Am]north and the [D]south. [G]
[C]Once I met there an [F]old polar [C]bear,
But I found out he [G]had a big [C]mouth.
[F]That's why I'm singing
For you, [C]forgotten cowboys,
[G]Forgotten cowboys of the [C]world.
[F]Come to Iceland, [C]'cause it's a nice land
[G]And you can shake the shepherd's [C]hand.
And [F]if you come to [C]Iceland
You can [G]join the local [C]band.
I'm an Icelandic cowboy
On my Icelandic pony.
I travel around in the west.
I know all the ways around Snæfellsnes,
'Cause that's where my baby stays.
I've been to the east
And I've been to the west.
I've been to the north and the south.
Once I met there an old polar bear,
But I found out he had a big mouth.
That's why I'm singing
For you, forgotten cowboys,
Forgotten cowboys of the world.
Come to Iceland, 'cause it's a nice land
And you can shake the shepherd's hand.
And if you come to Iceland
You can join the local band.
