COWBOY LOVE SONG

See the sun a-comin' out,
Behind the thunder showers,
Honey-Chile, the mornin' loves you true.
Li'l raindrops glisten
On the painted Injun flowers,
Honey-Chile, the mornin' loves you true.

The muddy road is brown and still,
As far as you can see;
Honey-Chile the noon-time loves you true.
A great big deer's a-watchin' us,
Beneath that cedar tree,
Honey-Chile the noon-time loves you true.

The sun is sinkin' through the trees,
And leaves the clouds all red.
Honey-Chile, the evenin' loves you true.
Just like I lights a nice warm fire
Before I goes to bed.
Honey-Chile, the evenin' loves you true.

Old Lady Moon comes peekin' up
To see what she can see.
Honey-Chile, the night time loves you true.
And finds you sittin' on a rock
So very close to me.
Honey-Chile, I guess I loves you too.
