Cowboy Hat

Song Description

A slow, languid, pretty pretty song thinking back on a lost love-- reflecting on the beginning times when everything was beautiful-- 2 verses of good times, one describing a break up, closer verse about wanting to be together again. A loping, country feel, a little Dixie Chicks, a little folk. A Hawaiian guitar solo, upright bass, a long piano intro and a nice, easy going outro. Nice group backing vocals and pretty female duet on the chorus, lots of reverb all over the mandolin and vocals, a very roomy song

Lyrics

Darling, do you remember when
we used to tear it up in the
dance halls way back when?

And you would wear your cowboy hat and I would wear a dress like that?

x 3

Honey, have you forgot
the way the air was like wine
and time was so slow?

And the flowers crushed beneath our feet rose in the air and smelled so sweet?

x 3


But then the storm clouds,they covered our sky so blue blue blue blue blue blue blue?

And the flowers crushed beneath our heels got lost in the dust of your car wheels?

x 3


So honey, won't you take me out again? We'll tear us up,
we'll burn us all the way down

And you can wear your cowboy hat and I will wear a dress like that

x 4
