​Cowboy and the Rose

This song is by Chris LeDoux and appears on the album Western Tunesmith (1979).

He's rugged, rough and ready, his lady's soft and pretty
There must be ten years difference in their ages I suppose
But you don't see any traces or sadness in the faces
'Cause together they're the cowboy and the rose

Now the lone cowboy shy like a piece of humble pie
Sips a cup of coffee at the dinner where he goes
Where he waits on the lady to finish waiting on the tables
But together they're the cowboy and the rose

She's Better Homes and Gardens, he's True West magazine
And how they got together the good Lord only knows
But it's not for a man to question
A love that's made in heaven
And together they're the cowboy and the rose

Well, the lady keeps her distance, there ain't much resistance
From the rednecks and the rounders drinkin' half cups for the road
'Cause a man will meet his maker if he ever tried to take her
Or come between the cowboy and the rose

She's Better Homes and Gardens, he's True West magazine
And how they got together the good Lord only knows
But it's not for a man to question
A love that's made in heaven
'Cause together they're the cowboy and the rose
'Cause together they're the cowboy and the rose
