Thank Heavens For Dale Evans
Thank Heavens For Dale Evans (1990)

I grew up on Bob Wills and daydreams
My toes were a-tappin' to western swing
I wished upon a star
Atop an old boxcar
Chasing rainbows to the place the bluebirds sing
I painted my eyes up like Dolly
Sang with Kitty Wells 'til momma screamed
Then daddy shook his head as he carried me to bed
And tucked me in a-beggin' me to sing:

Thank Heavens for Dale Evans
You're everything I'd ever want to be
Yodel-lay-ee, Yodel-lay-ee
Yodel-lay-ee-ee
Dale Evans made a cowgirl out of me

Now I play my guitar with the cowgirls
And what I've got they never bat an eye
Like Shirley Temple's curls
Thank heavens for the girls
We'll sing a song to make a cowboy cry
I never got the limo or the diamond
But I got my hat, my boots and my guitar
And I'm proud enough to say
That I'll always be this way
Like the girl who went and stole Roy Roger's heart

Thank Heavens for Dale Evans
You're everything I'd ever want to be
Yodel-lay-ee, Yodel-lay-ee
Yodel-lay-ee-ee
Dale Evans made a cowgirl out of me

Thank Heavens for Dale Evans
You're everything I'd ever want to be
Yodel-lay-ee, Yodel-lay-ee
Yodel-lay-ee-ee
Dale Evans made a cowgirl
(The cowboys want a cowgirl)
Thank God she made a cowgirl out of me!
