Biography

The Cowboy Junkies is a Canadian alt-country band formed by three siblings from the Timmins entertainment family (Margo Timmins, vocals; Michael Timmins, songwriter & guitars; Peter Timmins, drums) plus Alan Anton on bass. The group formed in Toronto in 1986. The band's name was simply a random choice as they approached their first ever gig, but it has come to perfectly represent their sound. (Some sources may credit Townes Van Zandt's song "Cowboy Junkies Lament" as the source of the band's name, but that song was written especially for Cowboy Junkies several years after they coined the name.)

    Lyrics
    I said "Mama, he's crazy and he scares me
    But I want him by my side
    Though he's wild and he's bad
    And sometimes just plain mad
    I need him to keep me satisfied"

    Lyrics
    I only want to say
    That if there is a way
    I want my baby back with me
    'Cause he's my true love, my only one, don't you see?
    And on that fateful day

    Lyrics
    Hear the lonesome whippoorwill
    His song's too blue to fly
    The midnight train is a-winding low
    I'm so lonesome I could cry
    I've never seen a night so long

    Lyrics
    We are miners, hard rock miners
    To the shaft house we must go
    Pour your bottles on our shoulders
    We are marching to the slow
    On the line boys, on the line boys
