There's lots of pretty cowgirls but this you may not know
There's a very special kind at every rodeo
Her husband is a cowboy she's his greatest fan
She's the wife behind the cowboy and the cowboys a lucky man

She's hauled water from the crick and got dust all over her clothes
She's been so hot she's thought she'd die and so cold she nearly froze
She's cooked over an open fire slept under the stars above
And you know she'd do it all again just to be with the man she loves

She rides the circuit with her man they go from town to town
She builds up his confidence when the horses buck him down
And she's driven weary miles across an endless land
She's the wife behind the cowboy and the cowboys a lucky man

When he climbs down in the chute and about to start his ride
She cheers more than anyone with a special kind of pride
And when she hears that whistle blow and she sees her cowboy smile
She's glad because he's happy and that makes it all worthwhile

There on the move and seldom home but yet she won't complain
If her cowboy's back is ackin' she'll rub away the pain
Weather things are good or bad right by him she will stand
She's the wife behind the cowboy and the cowboys a lucky man
Oh she's the wife behind the cowboy and the cowboys a lucky man
