lyrics

I count cattle every night before I dream
love to stare into the fire and poke the coals
I'm always searching for a place to cross the stream
there's a cowgirl livin' in my soul

My dog's named Holstein and Angus is my cat
I'm always thinkin' that I want to buy a goat
I must admit there's something kind of strange with that
there's a cowgirl livin' in my soul

And when I stare up at the stars I see heaven
When I see a field of green, oh I see elk
When my boss is gettin' angry 'cause I'm starin' out the window
I feel bison breathin' down my neck

There's a cowgirl throwin' rope around a steer
She's been there since the day that I was born
I'm in the wrong state, but my state of mind is clear
and every day my heart is being torn

And when I stare up at the stars I see heaven
When I see a field of green, oh I see elk
When my boss is gettin' angry 'cause I'm starin' out the window
I feel bison breathin' down my neck

I don't talk much; redtail hawk are my best friends
I'm a square peg in a waterin' hole
and I don't think these pastoral dreams are ever gonna end
'cause there's a cowgirl livin' in my soul
no, I don't think these bucolic dreams are ever gonna end
'cause there's a cowgirl inhabiting my soul
