This Cowgirl's Gonna Ride

Written By: Peter Bourque

This Cowgirl's Gonna Ride
┬ęPeter Bourque

VERSE
I got my hair done and put my best dress on
I slaved for hours over the stove
I lit some candles and turned the lights down low
And then I spent the night alone

CHORUS
'Cause you stayed out drinking whiskey
You should have been here to hold and kiss me
So take your bourbon and your rye
Let them keep you warm at night
Don't tell me that you'll miss me
'Cause cowboy you never tried
So tonight this cowgirl's gonna ride

VERSE
Now I've got my hair up and little black dress on
I'm going out to paint the town
I'll hit a night club where the music's loud
I'm finally stepping out

CHORUS
So stay out and drink your whiskey
I'll find someone who wants to kiss me
When we dance he'll hold me tight
And he'll keep me warm at night
Don't tell me that you'll miss me
'Cause cowboy you never tried
So tonight this cowgirl's gonna ride

BRIDGE
By the time you get home
You'll be drunk and I'll be gone

CHORUS
'Cause you stayed out drinking whiskey
When you should have been here to hold and kiss me
So take your bourbon and your rye
Let them keep you warm at night
Don't tell me that you'll miss me
'Cause cowboy you never tried
I've packed my saddle and my tack
And I'm never looking back
Yeah tonight this cowgirl's gonna ride

Tonight this cowgirl's gonna ride

Show Me

VERSE
Please don't tell me that you love me
I've been down that road before
And I've learned that those words lead
To a heartache breaking down my door
Hold me close so that I can understand
Let me feel it in the warmth of your hands
Give me anything I might need
But please don't tell me that you love me
Show me

Verse
Please don't tell me that you want me
I've already heard that one
When someone was feeling guilty
And trying to hide the smoking gun
I don't need to be reassured
Let me see it when my eyes look in yours
Actions mean much more than words
So please don't tell me that you want me
Show me

Bridge
All I need to know is in your touch don't blow it
Show me what you're worth don't waste your breath on words
I don't want a poet all I want is someone I can grow old with

Verse
So don't say you can't live without me
I know what comes with that phrase
And I've had all I can of cruelty
I've had all I can of jealous games
You don't have to try and prove that you're strong
If I can feel it when I'm wrapped inside your arms
Then I'll have everything I could want
So please don't say you can't live without me
Show me

Tag
Please don't tell me that you love me
Show me
