Guy Clark lyrics : "Rita ballou"

She could dance that slow Uvalde
Shuffle to some cowboy hustle
How she made them trophy buckles shine, shine, shine

Wild-eyed and Mexican silvered,
Trickin' dumb ol' cousin Willard
Into thinkin that he's got her this time


Chorus
Hill country honky-tonkin Rita Ballou

Every beer joint in town has played a fool for you
Backslidin' barrel ridin' Rita Ballou
Ain't a cowboy in Texas would not ride a bull for you


She's a rawhide rope and velvet mixture
Walkin' talkin Texas texture

High-timin' barroom fixture kind of a girl
She's the queen of the cowboys
Look at old Willard grinnin' now boys

You'd of thought there's less fools in this world

Chorus


So good luck Willard and here's to you
And here's to Rita and I hope she'll do ya right all night

Lord I wish I was the fool in your shoes

Chorus
