Rita Ballou  Guy Clark

Rita Ballou - Guy Clark
[C]She could dance that slow Uvalde
[F]Shuffle to some cowboy hustle
[C]How she made them trophy buckles
[G]Shine, shine, shine
[C]Wild-eyed and mexican silvered
[F]Trickin' dumb old cousin Willard
[C]Into thinkin that he's [G]got her this [C]time
[F]Hill country, honky-tonkin Rita[C] Ballou
Every beer joint in town has played a fool for [G]you
[F]Backsliding barrel riding Rita [C]Ballou
Ain't a cowboy in Texas would not [G]ride a bull for [C]you
She's a rawhide rope and velvet mixture
Walking, talking Texas texture
High timing, barroom fixture kind of a girl
She's the queen of the cowboys
Look at old Willard grinnin' now boys
You'd of thought there's less fools in this world
[F]So good luck Willard and here's to you
[Am]And here's to Rita and I hope she'll do ya
[G]Right all night
Lord I wish I was the fool in your [C]shoes
