Lyrics

You come around here in your chaps and your old fashioned clothes
Stinking of beer, but your smile is still sweet I suppose
Since you left town and I grew to be strong
I’ve got bread on the table and a place to belong
And I won’t give it up for some old-time song if that’s what you’re asking of me

I think of you often, like when I'm watching the swallows nest
And when the moon rises as bright as your eyes I love you the best
When the owls start calling and there’s snow on the barn
I think of the last time you lay in my arms
“A little adventure won’t do any harm so why won’t you come out with me?”

'Cos I’m too old to be following cowboys down dusty old tracks that don’t lead anywhere
Too young to settle for memories of what used to be
So please don’t ask me to ride by your side
Or watch the sun set at the edge of the sky
‘Cos it’s too hard to kiss you and wave you goodbye when you leave

It's true that I've wondered just what I did with my travelling shoes
yeah I guess some kinds of freedom can leave a heart bleeding and bruised
So pick up your hat, get your boots off the floor,
I don’t need to gamble on your love anymore
‘cos if your planning on keeping one foot out the door it looks more like losing to me

Too old to be following cowboys down dusty old tracks that don’t lead anywhere
Too young to settle for memories of what used to be
So please don’t ask me to ride by your side
Or watch the sun set at the edge of the sky
‘Cos it’s too hard to kiss you and wave you goodbye when you leave
