I was feelin' so bad
'Bout my best friend
I could swear the sky was fallin'
He had them put-down
Blues from wond'rin
Who his old lady was callin'

I said, "Keep your life
And drown your sorrow
And survive the fire that burns you
If you just slow down
And cool your temper
You might get off
On what I'll tell ya

I got me a straight shootin' woman
She's right on all the time
But all my friends, they got shot down
Women shot them from behind

Now those Hollywood women
They pack a pistol 'tween their toes
And when you've got
Your back turned 'round
They go and shoot the man next door

So I believe, I believe
I believe I'll keep my lovin' at home
I believe, I believe
I believe I'll keep my lovin' at home

Now if you want (straight shooter)
To keep (straight shooter)
You better leave (straight shooter)
Your travelin' gun alone
Yeah, if you want (straight shooter)
To keep (straight shooter)
You better leave (straight shooter)
Your travelin' gun alone

Whoa, got me a straight shootin' woman
She's right on all the time
Got me a straight shootin' woman
She's right on all the time
She keeps her bed turned down
With clean sheets on
And I can jump in it any ol' time
She keeps her cylinder
Greased and loaded
Just to ease my troubled mind
She's all mind
She's on my mind
Take her down
