I was third alto on the second row of the First Babtist Church Choir
I was minute keeper of the Tri-Delts
In charge of the homecoming bonfire
I was straight A, straight laced, level headed as they come
I drove into the Sonic, isn't it ironic that my whole world came undone

One slot over was a calf roper
Givin me his george strait smile
And before I knew Miss Goody Two Shoes
Was two steppin runnin wild

Back in my cowboy days
Lord what a honky-tonkin haze
He was forbidden fruit
In them tight Wranglers and boots
Oh it was all dangerous fun
We were two outlaws on the run
Tastin' that rodeo dust
Two unlikelies in love
I swore I'd never give him up
Back in my cowboy days

Maman said he's lazy
Daddy said he's crazy
Sister said does he have a brother
Well I changed my dress
And who woulda guessed
I'd be wearin them jeans and ropers

It was passionate nights and dashboard lights
Nobody was watchin the clock
It was love in the makin'
Eggs and bacon at the 76 truck stop

Back in my cowboy days
Lord what a honky-tonkin haze
He was forbidden fruit
In them tight Wranglers and boots
Oh it was all dangerous fun
We were two outlaws on the run
Tastin' that rodeo dust
Two unlikelies in love
I swore I'd never give him up
Back in my cowboy days

Sometimes I lay here thinkin bout him
And laugh about my crazy past
Then I roll over and kiss the calf roper
Who woulda thought it'd ever last

Back in my cowboy days
Lord what a honky-tonkin haze
He was forbidden fruit
In them tight Wranglers and boots
Oh it was all dangerous fun
We were two outlaws on the run
Tastin' that rodeo dust
Two unlikelies in love
I swore I'd never give him up
Back in my cowboy days
