I grew up on Bob Wills and daydreams My toes were a-tappin' to western swing Atop an old boxcar I wished upon a star Chasing rainbows to the place the bluebirds sing Sang with Kitty Wells 'til momma screamed And tucked me in a-beggin' me to sing: I painted my eyes up like Dolly Then daddy shook his head as he carried me to bed Thank Heavens for Dale Evans Yodel-lay-ee, Yodel-lay-ee Yodel-lay-ee Dale Evans made a cowgirl out of me Like Shirley Temple's curls You're everything I ever want to be Now I play my guitar with the cowgirls And what I got they never bat an eye We'll sing a song to make a cowboy cry I never got the limo or the diamond Thank heavens for the girls But I got my hat, my boots and my guitar I'm proud enough to say Like the girl who went and stole Roy Roger's heart I'll always be this way
