Lyle Lovett - Walk Through The Bottomland

Your rating:
And she was a lady I say
But she met a cowboy who rode on
    the rodeo
And he stole her heart straight away

The New Jersey lady she loved him
    so true
Another love she never had
But cowboys are lonesome and
    cowboys are blue
And they make the ladies so sad

Sing me a melody
Sing me a blues
Walk through the bottomland without
    no shoes
The Brazos she's running scared
She heard the news
Walk through the bottomland without
    no shoes

The New Jersey lady knew he loved
    her too
And you know she tried to hold on
But the rodeo life was the life that
    he knew
He had to keep drifting along

She never married and she
never would
And all of the people they'd say
The New Jersey lady she just ain't
    no good
To follow a cowboy that way

Sing me a melody
Sing me a blues
Walk through the bottomland without
    no shoes
The Brazos she's running scared
She heard the new
Walk through the bottomland without
    no shoes

The lady she'd sing him to sleep in
    the night
And then in the morning he'd go
She loved the darkness and hated
    the light
Along with that damn rodeo

The New Jersey lady the day that
    he died
She covered him over with clay
And feeling the wind in the night as
    she cried
She heard the old cowboy say

Sing me a melody
Sing me a blues
Walk through the bottomland without
    no shoes
The Brazos she's running scared
She heard the new
Walk through the bottomland without
no shoes
