Wife Behind The Glory
(Johnny Baker)

There's lots of pretty cowgirls
But this you may not know
There's a very special kind at every rodeo
Her husband is a cowboy she's his greatest fan
She's the wife behind the cowboy
And the cowboys a lucky man

She's hauled water from the crick
And got dust all over her clothes
She's been so hot she's thought she'd die
And so cold she nearly froze
She's cooked over an open fire
Slept under the stars above
And you know she'd do it all again
Just to be with the man she loves

She rides the circuit with her man
They go from town to town
She builds up his confidence
When the horses buck him down
And she's driven weary miles
Across an endless land
She's the wife behind the cowboy
And the cowboys a lucky man

When he climbs down in the chute
And about to start his ride
She cheers more than anyone
With a special kind of pride
And when she hears that whistle blow
And she sees her cowboy smile
She's glad because he's happy
And that makes it all worthwhile

There on the move and seldom home
But yet she won't complain
If her cowboy's back is ackin'
She'll rub away the pain
Weather things are good or bad
Right by him she will stand
She's the wife behind the cowboy
And the cowboys a lucky man

Oh she's the wife behind the cowboy
And the cowboys a lucky man
