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.)

    Anyone who's ever had a heart
    Wouldn't turn around and break it
    And anyone who's ever played a part
    Wouldn't turn around and hate it

    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
    Hear the lonesome whippoorwill
    His song's too blue to fly

    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,
    Our bottles on our shoulders,
    We are marching to the slope.
