Cosmic Cowboy by Barry McGuire (Sparrow Records, 1978)

Cosmic 1978

Cosmic 1978-2

Cosmic 1978-3

Here’s the beginning of the title track:

I met a Cosmic Cowboy

Ridin’ a starry range

He’s a supernatural Plowboy

And he’s dressed up kinda strange

And at first I didn’t see ‘im

Bein’ out there on the run

Yeah, but that old hat that he’s wearin’

It’s shinin’ brighter than the sun.

Get it? The Cosmic Cowboy is Jesus! The album is on Spotify. At least listen to the title track.

Album cover art, which was also available on a t-shirt(!), is by John Lykes, who did an interesting cover for Sun Ra’s Atlantis (1973).

    Ah, they don’t make lyrics like that anymore!
