Cowboys and Ladies

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

Johnny Cash: She’s the kind of lady you often see walking
Dressed in fine linen and lace
June Carter: He’s the kind of a man who works with his hands
You can tell by the look on her face

Johnny: That this lady’s quite taken by that weather worn cowboy
Though he won’t be easy to tame
June: She isn’t deterred cause the ladies like her
The challenge is part of the game

Both: And her mind’s made up
She willingly joins in the chase
He’s keeping his distance for now
Johnny: But it’s only the start of the race

Both: And it might take time
But she isn’t about to give in
Johnny: Somehow she knows all the rules
And she needs some losses to win

June: If you could ask him the cowboy might tell you
He’s noticed her too from afar
Johnny: But he can’t let it show because he well knows
Just how such ladies are

Both: And that cowboys and ladies can never be lovers
They’re caught in that old tender trap
Johnny: And it’s easy to be, it’s that old tendency
To want you never can have

Both: And his mind’s made up
He willingly leads in the chase
He’s keeping his distance for now
Johnny: But he’s keeping his eye on the pace

Both: And it might take time
But he knows that she’ll never give in
Johnny: As long as he treats her this way
June: As long as she loses, he wins
Both: That’s cowboys and ladies, my friends
