Is it this one, pardner? in a cowgirl mood myself tonight

(Dan Seals)

Campfire coffee from a tin cup in my hand
Sure warms the fingers when it's cold.
Playing an ol' guitar, a friend I understand,
It sure smoothes the wrinkles in my soul.

Sleeping in the moonlight, a blanket for a bed,
It leaves a peaceful feelin' in my mind.
Wakin' up in the morning with an eagle overhead
Makes me long to fly away before my time.

CHORUS: And I think God must be a cowboy at heart,
'Cause He made wide-open spaces from the start.
He made grass and trees and mountains and a horse to be a friend
And trails to lead ol' cowboys home again.

The nightlife in big cities is all right for a while.
It sure makes you feel good when you're there;
But the country's so pretty, it goes on and on for miles
And it takes away my troubles and my cares. CHORUS
