Excuse me, ma´m
I´d like your daughter´s hand for the evening
There´s a new band in town
I´d like to take her down to see ´em
The fiddler player used to be my neighbor
And he never slept a day in his life
He plays the “Strawberry Roan”
When he gets going he can play all night
And her mama said:

He´s a no good Texas cowboy, child
He´ll love you up and he´ll drive you wild
Then he´ll leave you
He´s a no good Texas rounder, girl
Got a one-track mind
And he ain´t on true love and that´s for sure
She said I´ve met his kind before
I´ve met your kind before.

Excuse me, ma´m
I´d like your daughter´s hand for the evening
My intentions are good, a man of honor
Please, ignore any rumors that have blackened my name
I´m just an innocent boy
How could I be to blame?
We´ll be late for the show
And I took her hand and said let´s go
And her mama said:

He´s a no good ....

Excuse me, ma´m
I´d like your daughter´s hand for the evening
I think you know the band
I´d like to take her down to see ´em
I´d been led to understand the fiddler was your man
That´s why he never slept a day in his life
He plays the “Strawberry Roan”
Just to get you going then you play all night.

And the daughter said:
He was a no good Texas ......
