Maggie Walters – Real Life Cowboy lyrics

The sun shines bigger and brighter on a real life cowboy's house
Cover me in whiskey and kisses from a real life cowboy's mouth

He's like climbing a mountain and collapsing at the very top
He's like an Indian summer and an unexpected afternoon off

But all I ever really wanted
Was to know what you wanted

I've seen a lot of handsome faces but their stories were never as good
And nobody could get me to dance the way the real life cowboy could

So everyday I fell a little bit harder for his real life cowboy charms
And every night I slept like a baby in the real life cowboy's arms

Whatever whatever
Whatever it was
Nobody does it like a cowboy does

I used to wonder what was on his mind
But when I asked him he was totally speechless

I sold my tickets for a moment in time
And spent the money on a moment of weakness

But all I ever really wanted
Was to know what you wanted

All I ever really wanted was to know what you wanted
