Iíd never met a girl like you,
Nor ever wanted to.
No one had ever touched me
In the special way you do.
Iíd never been a gambler
I liked to have control...
But over my emotions
You have a strangle hold.
The moment that I saw you-
this trouble came my way...
A longing for your presence
Had settled in to stay.
Iíve heard of perfect romance
Of candlelight and wine
For polished city people
I guess thatís all just fine.
I was a Texas cowboy
And you a dance hall queen
Both of us were born and bred
To tight blue denim jeans.
To love them and to leave them
Was my philosophy-
But something changed within my heart
Itís different now you see?
Iím still a footloose drifter-
A mover, this is true...
But thereís a part of me, my dear
Thatís always there with you.

Live large, people!

I never thought I would say it with pride but I can..."I have a kindred soul in Texas"...

------------------
Once I was brilliant, now I no longer shine, but the twinkle in my eye speaks of another time.

Some people impact our lives in such a way that they become a part of us forever.

Thanks for sharing, I enjoyed it.
