John DenverThe Cowboy And The Lady

In the airport lounge she sat in a fancy feather hat The grandest lady I have 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 Mogan 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. 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 Harvey's Bristol Creme And the beer I drank, and the easy company We somehow came together for a night of stormy weather Now there's a little bit of class in this ole cowboy There's a little bit of cowboy in the lady The cowboy and the lady, as different as could be But it seemed so right that rainy night in Tennessee. We somehow came together for a night of stormy weather Now there's a little bit of class in this ole cowboy There's a little bit of cowboy in the lady.
