Call You Cowboy is an American Western song written by Brenn Hill. It is also the name of the album on which the song was initially released.

"Call You Cowboy" is the title track of Hill's album Call You Cowboy, released in 2002 and nominated as Traditional Western Album of the Year by the Western Music Association.[1] Members of the Western Writers of America chose it as one of the Top 100 Western songs of all time.[2]

In the song, the singer talks to another person whose "father calls you a drifter, but I call you cowboy", then describes what are, to him, the attributes of a "cowboy" — intricacy, complexity, innovation, survivability, and unwillingness to conform.[3][4]
