RICK FORD ≈ Lyrics

YOUíLL SEE THESE BOOTS AGAIN
Rick Ford

Minding my own business drinking down at Maxís bar
Looking at my future through the bottom of a glass
Then I saw her by the jukebox moving like a movie queen
Like Monroe in the Misfits - my favourite cowgirl dream

She had a face just like an angel and a voice just like a thief
She stole a glance across the room and stole my heart from me
She said ĎHey there cowboy, How long you staying in town?
If you get lucky you might just see me around.í

And youíll see these boots again Sunny Jim Sunny Jim
Youíll see these boots again Sunny Jim
Youíll see these boots again, donít know where and donít know when
But youíll see these boots again Sunny Jim

Next night down at Maxís she was there again
She had a round up by the juke box with a posse of her friends
Said ĎHey there cowboy I see youíve come back for more
Come on back to my place and show me your Ď44.í


Well the times we had together were the best Iíve ever known
We played Hank Williams day and night with some Lefty and Buck Owens
There was love and there was laughter, then I awoke and found her gone
And thereís a note upon the pillowÖ ĎDonít forget our song.í

We sang
Youíll see these boots again Sunny Jim Sunny Jim
Youíll see these boots again Sunny Jim
Youíll see these boots again, donít know where and donít know when
But youíll see these boots again Sunny Jim


Never saw those boots again, never knew the reason why
Maybe she had a husband - needed loving on the side
Maybe she found Jesus and I became a sin
Maybe she just grew tired of me Ďn I was just a short term fling

Now Iíve got a wife and mortgage and two children of my own
You could say Iíve made it, you could say that Iíve grown
But some time in the longest nights just before the dawn
Those boots come back to haunt me and I wonder where sheís gone.

She said
Youíll see these boots again Sunny Jim Sunny Jim
Youíll see these boots again Sunny Jim
Youíll see these boots again, donít know where and donít know when
But youíll see these boots again Sunny Jim
