Cowboy Man (Lyle Lovett) She wore glass slippers. She held her head up high. She had that sparkle at her feet, And that twinkle in her eye. She smiled at me And I wondered why. She said, "I'm looking for a cowboy To take me for a ride. "And he can rope me on the prairie, And he can ride me on the plain, And I will be his Cinderella If he'll be my cowboy man." She said, "I've got a forty-gallon Stetson hat With a thirty-eight-foot brim. We could dance around the outside, baby, 'Til we both fall in. "And you can rope me on the prairie, And you can ride me on the plain, And I will be your Cinderella If you'll be my cowboy man." Now I ain't never been no cowboy, But heaven knows I try, 'Cause I'll be riding tall in my saddle With my Cinderella by my side. And I can rope her on the prairie, And I can ride her on the plain, And she will be me my Cinderella If I'll be her cowboy man. Copyright Lyle Lovett XX
