John DenverThe Cowboy And The Lady

In the airport lounge she sat in a Marlena Dietrich hat The grandest lady I had ever seen Outside the heavy rains had grounded all the planes So I asked her if she'd like some company In my rhinestone studded suit, my cowboy hat and boots I must have been a sight for her to see But she said, "Pull up a chair," as she fumbled with her hair A more unlikely pair you'll never see I was Mogen David wine, she was Chablis fifty-nine But there we sat, the cowboy and the lady She was evenings at the opera and summers in Paree I was Grand Ole Opry, Nashville, Tennessee [Chorus] The cowboy and the lady As different as could be But it seemed so right that rainy night In Tennessee Then somewhere in between her Harey's Bristol Creme And the seven beers I ordered for the lady We somehow came together for a night of stormy weather Now there's a bit of class in this old cowboy And there's a little bit of cowboy in the lady [Chorus] We somehow came together for a night of stormy weather Now there's a bit of class in this old cowboy And there's a little bit of cowboy in the lady
