My name is Addie Shaughnessey,
I’m in love with a Cowboy,
Though he up and rides away,
Time and time again.
I understand the lure,
Of those wide open spaces,
And I’ll be right here waiting,
When his trail comes to an end.
He’s chasing wild cattle,
By the muddy Rio Grande,
For a drive across the world,
From Texas to Montan’,
One day he will come back to me,
I’m very sure of this,
They were the final words he spoke,
Before his good-bye kiss.
So I’ll hold his image in my heart,
Stay true to him and strong,
For a Cowboy loves the prairie,
Like a woman loves a song.
