Cowboy Joe is singing and dancing.
He got engaged.
He’s 15 miles out from town
Putting on the Ritz with his girlfriend.
Playing his guitar.
Showing off at the county fair
Going to a square dance
He’s going to give her the ring today
But he’s dropped it out in the pasture.
He’s trying to find the ring.
He knows he’s in trouble.
He’ll get on the horse and ride away
His guitar in his saddlebag.
He’s gonna find his buddies and rob a bank.
He’s riding to the border to Mexico.
The money is in the guitar where he hid it.
He’ll find another girlfriend someplace else.
Maybe go to a rodeo.
Or go on the Lawrence Welk Show.
