Subject: once had me a cowboy.....
Someone save my poor brain! I have a song zipping around in my brian and it won't go away. I cannot think of the title, or the artist. (I know i know) The lyrics are unique I believe though so maybe someone can figure out this song. The song is in the folk/country category, and have heard it done by local tennessee bands at religious events.


Starts of with "I once had me a cowboy......."

and has the phrase, if thunder were ??????, and lightning were desire, this old house would have burned down a long time ago."

That is the best I can do ladies and gents. The recored versions I have heard were mostly acoutic instruments only with female voclas. Possibly kitty wells? Or Joni Mitchel? Also heard a version with a duet (male and female). Sounded like Bob Dylan and perhaps joan baez or joplin. Please help me. Email address is
