I Rode Away To Stay Alive (Larry W Jones 09/18/2019) (song #7603)

I was ridiní down the trail from San Antony
When I met a cowgirl who was skin and bony
I said, youíre the purdiest girl Iíve seen alive
And thatís when she drew her forty-five
So, I rode away to stay alive

I was ridiní down the trail from San Antony
When I met a cowgirl who was not so bony
I said, youíre the purdiest girl Iíve seen a-spell
And thatís when she said, go or Iíll yell
So, I rode away from that fine belle

(Instrumental)

I was ridiní 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 youíre about to die
So, I rode away and said bye bye

I was ridiní 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 sheís got all my fences mended
And sheís got all of my cows tended
And now this song is ended, Yee Ha!
