i want to be a cowboy’s sweetheart lyrics – nickel creek

i want to be a cowboy’s sweetheart
i want to learn to rope and to ride
i want to ride o’er the plains and the deserts
out west of that great divide

i want to hear the coyotes howlin’
while the sun sinks in the west
i want to be a cowboy’s sweetheart
that’s the life i love the best

i want to ride old paint goin’ at a run
i want to feel the wind in my face
a thousand miles from all the city lights
goin’ a cowhand’s pace

i want to pillow my head near the sleeping herd
while the moon shines down from above
i want to strum my guitar and yodelay-hee-hoo
oh, that’s the life that i love

i want to be a cowboy’s sweetheart
i want to learn to rope and to ride
i want to ride o’er the plains and the deserts
out west of that great divide

i want to hear the coyotes howlin’
while the sun sinks in the west
i want to be a cowboy’s sweetheart
that’s the life i love the best
