Lyrics: 

I Rode Away To Stay Alive

I was ridin’ down the trail from San Antony
When I met a cowgirl who was skin and bony
I said, you’re the purdiest girl I’ve seen alive
And that’s when she drew her forty-five
So, I rode away to stay alive

I was ridin’ down the trail from San Antony
When I met a cowgirl who was not so bony
I said, you’re the purdiest girl I’ve seen a-spell
And that’s when she said, git or I’ll yell
So, I rode away from that fine belle

(Instrumental)

I was ridin’ down the trail from San Antony
When I met a cowgirl on a little pony
I said, girl you look like the apple of my eye
She said, cowboy you’re about to die
So, I rode away and said bye bye

I was ridin’ down the trail from San Antony
When I met a cowgirl who appeared quite homey
I said, girl my fences need mended
She said, I know how cows are tended
So, we rode away with hearts blended

Now she’s got all my fences mended
And she’s got all of my cows tended
And now this song is ended, Yee Ha!

Lovely ending - finding love and companionship with one who shares interests. I like how you build to that with the other choices that turned out not to be right or for the right reasons.

Yes, I had a rule, - never marry a girl that could take you in a fight; or looked like might sew you into the bedsheets while sleeping and take a bat to you Wink
