I want to be a cowboy's sweetheart
I want to learn to rope and ride
I want to ride over the plains and deserts
Out west of the Great Divide

The life I love the best

I want to ride old Paint, goin' on a run
I want to feel the wind in my face
A thousand miles from all the city lights
Go at 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, yodel-lay-ee-oo
That's the life I love
