The Girl I Sold My Horse For

rambling wide was what I did

saloons and bars near and far,

winds alive behind my back

horizons lit by a guiding star

 

I never thought much different

till she caught my horse's rein,

she taught me to settle down,

didn't need my horse's mane

 

she's sassy and bright and clever

I grew to love the kegs she wore,

she's the mother of my kid now

she's the girl I sold my horse for

 

we live on her father's old place

in Colorado, its quite a spread,

the blessing is I'm still a cowboy

in charge of five hundred head

 

she learned me to read and write,

my table manners are far better,

I'd be a lost soul without her love

I don't mind a lover for a fetter

 

daily I saddle up with the men,

spurs jingle under the blazing sun,

yet each night I'm glad to return

to the glorious woman I won

 

she's sassy and bright and clever

i grew to love the kegs she wore

she's the mother of my kid now

she's the girl I sold my horse for
