Now That I Am All Grown Up, I Can Run Away With My Cowboy. YeeHa!!

Updated on February 5, 2015

Western Delight. Run off in The Night.

Brown velvet eyes,

Brown leather boots,

Clinking of spurs as he walks.

Dust blowing wild,

As soon as he rides,

Taking me back to my roots.

EEERRRRRR! Your roots, little lady?

Has your brain failed again?

Are not your roots in Welsh Wales?

´Well, some of them are,

while others afar......

like Scotland and Ireland

for sure.´´

So brown leather boots,

and riding the range,

Where do these fit into Wales?

Brown velvet eyes depend on the man

If they´re blue and they´re kind

doesn't matter..

But the boots and aromas

of leather, don´t you

my dreams try to shatter.!

Please humour me, my passion it is,

the Wild West with Indians too,

Gun--toting guys,

chaps on their thighs,

Indian Tee--Pees

Authentic designs.

All of these things make me smile,

Must be t.v. from when I was three,

Too many Westerns, I watched.

I want to ride away,

cowboy at my side.

Guess it would help,

If I first learned to ride.

    Hi Wickedflax:

    A hippy you are, all done in leather

    A moment in time we all watched the same the same heather

    You in a dream of the Indian tether

    I was a warrior fighting the dread

    And you travelled it instead

    I love your aging

    It has a hip contagion

    I’m old and might bold

    To be talking to a lady not Asian

    From the old country no less

    But then I’m not Aussie

    But the leather here is all kanga

    So wailing has its occasions

    But Whaling is just not Australian

    But your western has featured in this duds life

    The arrow it flings is right to the heart

    Yes I agree the Indian stage was definitely a hippy phase

    The old west is a frame of mind. The right frame of mind.
