Song Description

Women waited months for their cowboys to herd the cattle and return home. This woman loved her cowboy enough to live apart most of the time, just for the moments they have together.

Story Behind the Song

My elderly Aunt lost her husband fairly young,the first time they met in the 30's, he looked at her one night while at a dance, and tipped his hat, soon they married. they didn't have children for 11 years so were very close, she often recalled her love for their days when they rode horses through the Texas sand hills.I wrote this song for her, she died at 98 last year.I apologize for my voice and recording, just have such a bad cold and pitiful recording set up here, but hope you can see beyond that.

Out on the prairie, the cattle are lowin',
The cowboys are gathered, around the firelight,
Under the west Texas sky he'll be sleepin',
And I wonder if he'll dream, about me tonight?

I can remember how Mama would tell us,
We would see Papa sometime in the fall,
He was gone drivin' the cattle to Denver,
In fact, we'd be lucky, to see him at all.

I was forewarned, don't marry a cowboy,
He'll only love you and leave you in strife,
Cowboys are under the spell of the Prairie,
But I'll love a cowboy, the rest of my life.

Some people tell me, I should be leavin',
Why would I stay here so long all alone?
Cause the love that he gives me, when we're together,
Is worth all the time I spend on my own.

(Repeat chorus)

This time tomorrow, I'll be with my darlin',
I'll run to his arms, like I always do,
And he'll lay his eyes on his son for the first time,
Knowin' just like his Pa, he was born cowboy too.

(Insert last line)
"We'll love a cowboy the rest of our life"
