Uncle Slim had let her know she couldn't ride that horse 
He was the one that was only meant for men
She walked around till way after dark
Rode that horse with all her heart

 Somehow she always knew she had the strength inside
And even if she fell she'd survive 
In spite of all the tears she may cry
This is how she has to live her life
As hard as it may be, she has to find out for herself 

Mama and daddy told her from the start he was no good
They'd seen how he treated the other girls
She waited around till the sun went down
 Slipped out of the house not makin' a sound 
And in the night oh how they drove 


It was fifteen years to the day he became a stranger in her eyes
In the coldest words of anger 
He said without me you won't survive 

There's a suitcase in the closet she had packed six months ago
She don't leave a note that's not her style 
So she waited around till way after dark
Left that man who broke her heart 
Now she's gone, oh she's gone
