Y'All Come Back Saloon    (1977)

She played tambourine with a silver jingle
And she must have known the words to at least a million tunes
But the one most requested by the man she knew as "Cowboy"
Was the late-night benediction at the Y'all Come Back Saloon

In a voice soft and trembling she'd sing her songs to Cowboy
As a smokey halo circled 'round her raven hair
And all the fallen angels, the pinball playin' rounders
Stopped the games that they'd been playin' for the Losers' Evening Prayer

Faded Love and faded mem'ries
How they linger in a mind
Miles and years played the Cowboy like an old melody
Out of tune and out of time

Ev'ry night in the shadows thinking back on Amarillo
He'd dream of better days and ask for Faded Love
Lifting high his glass in honor of the lady and her song
He paid his check then lonely walked that broken Cowboy home

She played tambourine with a silver jingle
And she must have known the words to at least a million tunes
But the one most requested by the man she knew as "Cowboy"
Was the late-night benediction at the Y'all Come Back Saloon

She played tambourine with a silver jingle
And she must have known the words to at least a million tunes
But the one most requested by the man she knew as "Cowboy"
Was the late-night benediction at the Y'all Come Back Saloon

She played tambourine with a silver jingle
And she must have known the words to at least a million tunes
But the one most requested by the man she knew as "Cowboy"
Was the late-night benediction at the Y'all Come Back Saloon`
