Lyrics: 

V1
I met her in Fairbanks, Alaska
down at Miguel’s taco bar
in cowboy boots and denim jacket
she strummed a twelve string guitar
singing about fools and madness
and living out of trunks of cars
she heated me up like hot chilis
and sang her way into my heart

I felt the familiar stirrings
of something special
about to start

C
oh she is my Alaskan cowgirl
the singing cowgirl of my dreams
in cowboy boots, cowboy hat on top
sparkling eyes of forest green
everyday I remain grateful
for the many love songs she sings
and for the love she gives...
gives to me

V2
I sipped beer and ate chips slowly
to settle in for a long night
wanting to hear all of her sets
in the glow of midnight sunlight
when she was done I stayed there
on here way out she stopped by
she pulled a marble from her pocket
the same forest green as her eyes

she pressed the marble
into my hand and said
come on outside

C
oh she is my Alaskan cowgirl
the singing cowgirl of my dreams
in cowboy boots, cowboy hat on top
sparkling eyes of forest green
everyday I remain grateful
for the many love songs she sings
and for the love she gives...
gives to me

B
when she is traveling on tour
and I am caring for our home
I reach down for that marble
holding it I’m not alone
I see her eyes within it
and I feel all her love
I didn’t know back at Miguel’s
that this one marble would
mean so much

C
oh she is my Alaskan cowgirl
the singing cowgirl of my dreams
in cowboy boots, cowboy hat on top
sparkling eyes of forest green
everyday I remain grateful
for the many love songs she sings
and for the love she gives...
gives to me

You nailed the skirmish challenge! Really inventive and engaging lyrics in this song. Very clever to have incorporated all those very disparate words and make then bond together.

Awesome job using all 10 words in a cohesive strong lyric, what a great story and there are some excellent lines that help set the scene so vividly. Super job!
