Well I can see you got your eye on this ole cowboy and I can tell
you never had one for your own, no you never been around one
now your thinkin' that you found one and it might be kinda fun to take him
home.

You giggle everytime that I say "Yes, ma'm" and I get this feeling
if I held you tight, we'd be seeing his and hers buckles boots and spurs
but that's a feeling you'll get over over night.

Chorus
Cause what you gonna do with a cowboy when that ole rooster crows at
dawn and he's lying there instead of getting out of bed and putting on his
boots and getting gone.
What you gonna do when he says " Honey, well I gotta half a mind to stay"
What you gonna do with a cowboy when he don't saddle up and ride away.

Well you can see it takes a special kind of woman to put up with the
life a cowboy leads, his boots are always muddy and his beer drinkin
buddies they'll camp out on the couch and never leave

Don't even start to think your gonna change him you'd be better off
to try to rope the wind. What you see is what you got and he can't be
what he's not, and honey you can't hide him from your friends .

Repeat Chorus
