Sweet Amarillo

  • Well the world's greatest wonder
    from what I can tell
    Is how a cowgirl like you could ever look my way
    I was planted by glory with a half written story
    Songs spilling out off of every page

    Sweet Amarillo
    Tears on my pillow
    You never will know how much I cried
    Sweet Amarillo
    Like the wind in the willow
    Damn this old cowboy for my foolish pride

    So I drifted on down iron old range
    Across the wide Missouri, where the cool waters flow
    When I got to Topeka, I looked up your name
    It said you rode off with the last rodeo

    Sweet Amarillo
    Tears on my pillow
    You never will know how much I cried
    Sweet Amarillo
    Like the wind in the willow
    Damn this old cowboy for my foolish pride
