Lyrics

Wanderin? Women
Lyrics and Music © 2006 Barry Thompson

Rodeo Ruby, she laughed when the bull threw me,
Then she helped clean my bruises and wiped off my frown
We had some fun, I thought she was the one
Till she rode off with the rodeo clown

CHORUS:
Wandering women ain?t no man can win ?em,
When they take up the cowboy?s ways
This cowboy?s learnin? some women got yearnins,
guess the boot?s on the other foot some days

Met a chuck wagon Chica all the way from Topeka,
She kept them heard- drivers fed
She fixed me some grub, I thought it was love,
But they drove on and away she was led

There was sweet Mary Brown she grew up here in town,
I thought she?d be safe with my heart
But she wrote ?sorry to scorn ya? I?m off to California
To find fortune and make a new start

REPEAT CHORUS

Came the big-tent revival Miss Becky handed me a bible
and said ?We travel in the word and it?s a righteous life?
When the praising was spent, I folded in with their tent,
Now I wander with miss Becky as my wife

Wandering women ain?t no man can win ?em
Lest he give up his cowboy ways
This cowboy learned that a true heart is earned,
Yes the boot?s on the right foot today.
