  • I want to be a cowboy's sweetheart
    I want to learn to rope and to ride
    I want to ride o'er the plains and the desert
    Out west of the great divide
    I want to hear the coyotes howlin'
    While the sun sets in the West
    I want to be a cowboy's sweetheart
    That's the life that I love best

    I want to ride Old Paint, goin' at a run
    I wanna feel the wind in my face
    A thousand miles from all the city lights
    Goin' cowhand's pace
    I want to pillow my head near the sleeping herd
    While the moon shines down from above
    I want to strum my guitar and odo-lay-eee-hee
    Oh, that's the life that I love

    I want to be a cowboy's sweetheart
    I want to learn to rope and to ride
    I want to ride o'er the plains and the desert
    Out west of the great divide
    I want to hear the coyotes howlin'
    While the sun sets in the West
    I wanna be a cowboy's sweetheart
    That's the life that I love best Writer/s: Patsy Montana
