I Want To Be A Cowboy's Sweetheart
Thank Heavens For Dale Evans (1990)

I want to be a cowboy's sweetheart
I want to learn to rope and ride
I want to ride o'er the plains and deserts
Out west of the Great Divide

I want to hear the coyotes howling
While the sun sets in the west
I want to be a cowboy's sweetheart
The life I love the best

I-dee-odel-lay-ee-ee, oh
I-dee-odel-lay-ee-ee, oh
I-dee-odel-lay-ee, odel-lay-ee, odel-lay-ee
I-dee-odel-lay-ee-ee, oh
I-dee-odel-lay-ee-ee, oh
Lay-ee, ee-ay-ee-ay-ee-ee

I want to ride old Paint goin' on a run
I want to feel the wind in my face
A thousand miles from all the city lights
Go at a cowhand's pace

I want to pill'er my head near the sleeping herd
While the moon shines down from above
I want to strum my guitar odel-lay-ee-ee
Oh that's the life I love

I want to be a cowboy's sweetheart
I want to learn to rope and ride
I want to ride o'er the plains and deserts
Out west of the Great Divide

I want to hear the coyotes howling
While the sun sets in the west
I want to be a cowboy's sweetheart
The life I love the best

I-dee-del-lay-ee, o-dee-del-lay-ee 
O-dee-del-lay-ee-ee, ee-hay-ee
O-dee-del-lay-ee-ee, ee-hay-ee
O-dee-del-lay-ee-ee
I-dee-del-lay-ee, o-dee-del-lay-ee 
O-dee-del-lay-ee-ee, ee-hay-ee
Ee-dee-ee, o-dee-del-lay-ee-ee
