Cowgirl

Cowgirl



Lord ya’ know, I want to be a cowgirl

Cause the cowgirl life has got to be for me

When I was young and all the guys were talking bout’ being cowboys

I had the funniest feeling it was no girls if you please

Well they were always shoving us in those fancy party clothes

When all I wanted to do was learn to ride and rope

Well Lord ya’ know, I want to be a cowgirl

Cause I do believe the cowgirl life’s for me


 Here I come Montana I’ll get there soon as I can

Cause I’ve saved me a little money and I’m gonna buy myself some land

Then watch out honey, they’ll be nothin’ stopin’ me then

I’ll be a lady of the country, with a fine rope in my hand


Lord, Lord, Lord, please you know I want to be a cowgirl

Cause the cowgirl life has gotta be for me

And I’ll show those guys who can’t be a cowboy

Well they know damn well that anyone can be

So if you got yourself some reason, and you don’t got any doubt

Well then come on honey, and leave that dreamin’ out

Lord ya know, I want to be a cowgirl

Cause I do believe the cowgirl life’s for me

 


Lord, Lord, Lord, please you know I want to be a cowgirl

Cause the cowgirl life has gotta be for me

And I’ll show those guys who can’t be a cowboy

Well they know damn well that anyone can be

So if you got yourself some reason, and you don’t got any doubt

Well then come on honey, and leave that dreamin’ out

Lord ya know, I want to be a cowgirl

Cause I do believe the cowgirl life’s for me

Ya better believe it, I do believe the cowgirl life’s for me.
