I want to be a cowboy's sweetheart I want to ride o'er the plains and deserts I want to learn to rope and ride The life I love the best I want to hear the coyotes howling While the sun sets in the west Out west of the Great Divide I want to be a cowboy's sweetheart I want to ride old Paint, goin' on a run I want to feel the wind in my face A thousand miles from all the city lights Go at a cowhand's pace I want to pillow my head near the sleeping herd While the moon shines down from above That's the life I love I want to strum my guitar, yodel-lay-ee-oo
