The Cowboy And The Lady

Original and similar lyrics
(Goldsboro) In the airport lounge she sat, in a fancy feathered hat, the grandest lady I had ever seen. Outside the heavy rain had grounded all the planes, so I asked her if she'd like some company. In my rhinestone studded suit, my cowboy hat and boots, I must have been a sight for her to see. But she said, 'Pull up a chair' as she fumbled with her hair, a more unlikely pair you'll never see. I was Mogen Davis wine, she was Chablis '59, but there we sat, the cowboy and the lady. She was evenings at the opera, and summers in Paree, I was Grand Ole Opry, Nashville, Tennessee. The cowboy and the lady, as different as could be, But it seemed so right that rainy night in Tennessee. And somewhere in between her Harvey's Bristol Cream and the beer I drank and the easy company, we somehow came together, for a night of stormy weather, now there's a little bit of class in this old cowboy, there's a little bit of cowboy in the lady. The cowboy and the lady, as different as could be, But it seemed so right that rainy night in Tennessee. And somewhere in between her Harvey's Bristol Cream and the beer I drank and the easy company, we somehow came together, for a night of stormy weather, now there's a little bit of class in this old cowboy, there's a little bit of cowboy in the lady.

Lady Of Delight

THE POLICE "Strontium 90 - Police Academy"
Just the kind of lady to really set you sailing On emotion's ocean Just like a river she's rolling on forever Got you running around now you've found She turns the tide of your tired heart Back to the place where you made a start She's got the power to burn you up But she's turning, turning your golden heart Lady, lady of delight Lady, lady of the night Don't stand in the gutter boy, mumble and mutter that the world ain't treating you right I'm talking to you - I can prove it too - You'd better listen to me - I've got a guarantee Now who told you life was meant to be Happiness, Light, Love and Free What made you think you had a right You're just a frightened child in the middle of the night Lady, lady of delight Lady, lady of the night Wild dogs baying at the moon Alley cats singing out of tune Hoot of owls across the lake - These are sounds that follow her wake Don't think you can change her - I know she'll rearrange you You might disagree but just you wait and see You think you're winning but look at the state you're in Danger - stranger: Some call her goddess some call her a whore But she's a sister - a lover - a mother and more She keeps on coming - she makes it clear That if you let her in you've got nothing to fear Lady, lady of delight Lady, lady of the night

Lady

JOHNNY CASH "The Rambler"
Lady your arms're always warm and your bed was always ready when I came Lady in the middle of the night You would open up when you'd hear me call your name And you were always there to see the turning of my key And your laughing voice to me was like a song Lady your spirit's sweet and free it's hanging on with me now that I'm gone Lady you spoke softly and kind and you never had a word to criticize Lady you know I love you so even more than I ever let you be alive And day or night I knew that I could bring it all to you And if I was wrong you'd never put me down Lady so much I could say but I can't find the way to write it down Can't find the way to write it down The days and the miles roll by In Denver the Rambler and the Fisherman are tired of the road And ready for whatever the city and the night have to offer They check into a cheap hotel and go right to the bar downstairs It's Saturday night and the city's alive They've been in the bar four hours now and it's nearly closin' time [Fisherman] Hey give me another Coors how about you Angie [Bargirl 1] I don't like beer [Fisherman] Wow man I believe the little lady here wants champagne [Bargirl 2] Hey yeah could I have champagne [Rambler] Do you think we're a couple of bankers here or somethin' [Bargirl 1] I like that [Fisherman] Abracadabra abracadabra Coors you're no longer Coors you're champagne [Rambler] Man I've had enough of this [Bargirl 1] Hey where are you goin' [Rambler] Good night [Bargirl 2] Hey you're not goin' are you you were buyin' me a drink [Fisherman] Hey give me another Coors [Bargirl 1] But I don't like beer [Fisherman] That ain't beer honey that's Coors [Rambler] Well the barman's right Beer the bar girls too much beer I must be seein' things I saw you sittin' on a barstool lady and I looked up and you were gone You didn't like beer either did you lady liked champagne neither did you lady In Denver Colorado fancy town for a fancy lady like you Hey maybe she's out there somewhere hey lady hahaha Hey I ran maybe she ran maybe I did see her downstairs Maybe she's drownin' her blues like I did Hey maybe I did see her down there havin' a ball somewhere comin' up to me Yeah maybe she'll be comin' yeah maybe she'll be comin'

She's Got A Gun

YELLO "Claro Que Si"
This is tonight, and it rains like in a french black and white movie of the 50's. I feel like a character in it who's just lost it all, who is alone with his raincoat and a face showing a yet un Way out of it. steamy hot summer night street makes me laugh. I enjoy waiting for a taxi and I hope it's not gonna be here until I've had enough of this pleasant situation. Movie is on There comes a lady through the night She stops in front of me And asks me for a light To win some time To introduce myself I pretend not to know In which pocket I got my matches Movie is on There comes a lady through the night She stops in front of me And asks me for a light She is walking on but not too far She disappears behind a door Some cats down there inside a club The sixties play guitar Movie is on There came a lady through the night She stopped in front of me And asked me for a light I enjoy the rain and my wet hair Feel slightly stupid But got to follow her The club is empty I am standing near the door She is the only dancer On the biggest floor Quel est votre nom?

Dixieland Delight

ALABAMA "The Closer You Get..."
Rollin' down a backwoods Tennessee byway, one arm on the wheel, holdin' my lover with the other: a sweet, soft, Southern thrill. Worked hard all week; got a little jingle on a Tennessee Saturday night. Couldn't feel better: I'm together with my Dixieland Delight. Chorus: Spend my dollar; parked in a holler 'neath the mountain moonlight; hold her uptight; make a little lovin', a little turtle dovin' on a Mason Dixon night. Fits my life, oh, so right: My Dixieland Delight. Whitetail buck deer munchin' on clover, redtail hawk settin' on a limb, a chubby old groundhog, croakin' bullfrog, free as the feelin' in the wind. Home grown country girl gonna give me a whirl on a Tennessee Saturday night. Lucky as a seven livin' in heaven with my Dixieland Delight. Chorus x2 Repeat first verse
