Tight Levis and Yellow Ribbons
(G. Sutton and Red Steagall)

I was born and raised in the red clay hills of Texas
In the land where the grass gets only beer can tall
That's where I learned to cuss and fight and chew Brown Mule Tobacco
Fix windmills 'fore I was five years old
I rode every head of stock from the Gulf to Kansas City
And runnin' wild is all I've ever known
But this cowboy's got a weakness for Tight Levis and Yellow Ribbons
And there's somethin' 'bout 'em I can't leave alone

Tight Levis and Yellow Ribbons will make a cowboy swim a river
That before he jumps, he knows is way too wide
And they'll make him throw a saddle on a bronc he's never seen
And one he knows he'll never break to ride

I met her at a rodeo in Douglas, Arizona
I'd drawn the rankest horse a man could draw
Well, I rode him tall and spurred him high
And when I made the whistle
The crowd went wild but she was all I saw
That night we had a beer or two with friends of mine from Dallas
She smiled and said she loved the Texas drawl
And I felt like Roy Rogers did in all those cowboy movies
'Cuz I became the hero, got the money, girl and all
