Cowboy’s Sweetheart

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

June Carter:
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 desert
Way out on the great divide

I want to hear the coyotes howling
As the sun sinks in the west
I want to be a cowboy's sweetheart
The life I love the best

(yodeling)

Well, I went across to Switzerland where all the yodelers be
Just to try to learn to yodel with the odo-lay-eee-hee
I climbed the high mountain on a clear sunny day
And met a yodeling gal in a little Swiss chalet
She taught me to yodel odo-lay-eee-hee
She taught me to yodel odo-lay-eee-hee

(yodeling)

Drink my coffee from an old tin can
While the moon goes riding high
Just a thousand miles from the city life
Way out on the great divide

I want to feel that saddle between my knees
Riding out there on the range
Just kick him in the side, make him show his step in pride
Way out on the Texas plains

I want to be a cowboy’s sweetheart
That’s the type I love the best

(yodeling)
