The Cowboy and the Lady Lyrics

Artist: John Denver
Album: Greatest Country Hits

This song was first released on the Some Days Are Diamonds album. It is the only album it has been released on.


In the airport lounge she sat in a Marlena Dietrich hat
The grandest lady I had ever seen
Outside the heavy rains 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 David wine, she was Chablis fifty-nine
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 diff'rent as could be
But it seemed so right that rainy night
In Tennessee

Then somewhere in between her Harey's Bristol Creme
And the seven beers I ordered for the lady
We somehow came together for a night of stormy weather
Now there's a bit of class in this old cowboy
And there's a little bit of cowboy in the lady

The cowboy and the lady
As diff'rent as could be
But it seemed so right that rainy night
In Tennessee

We somehow came together for a night of stormy weather
Now there's a bit of class in this old cowboy
And there's a little bit of cowboy in the lady

This song was written by Bobby Goldsboro. In 1982, after a decade and a half of MAJOR SUCCESS, the new executives at RCA decided that they had to tell John Denver that he had to go to Nashville "to do a Country album". WHAT?!?!
Most of the fans didn't know what the hell RCA was talking about.
But John did as they asked. And only two of the songs were written by John, he was made to record these other "Country" songs (this song being one of those he was told to record). Most of them didn't sound even as "Country" as what John had previously done.

Maybe these are the lyrics as Bobby Boldsboro sang them. John used -a fancy featherd hat- and "ordered the beer for his own" as -and the beer I drank and the easy company-. Anyway it's a good song and a good album.
