Saddletramp Lament

(C) 2019 Geneva Griffin

V1
Met a temperamental Texas gal
She was southern belle polite
When she swore she'd get even with me
She had her way with my bike
Told her up front I wasn't lookin' for love
I was just driftin' with time
Everybody knows a saddletramp
Always goes back to his sweet ride

I'm carefree, takin' life easy
This here hog
She's the only woman been good to me

CH
The mem'rys in my saddlebags
Got their place when I feel the need
A pillion rider of a few regrets
Sometimes hold on to me
As I ride like thunder
Riding away with the wind
A lighthearted, melancholy
Saddletramps lament

V2
That little chica in Santa Fe
Made me wanna stick around awhile
We'd roast tamales over open coals
Cruise the beauty of mountain sides
She come from years'a hard workin' hands
Who didn't pussyfoot about grit
I wasn't built to mend fences 'round
The casita we shacked up in

I'm carefree, takin' life easy
This here hog
She's the only woman been good to me

CH
The mem'rys in my saddlebags
Got their place when I feel the need
A pillion rider of a few regrets
Sometimes hold on to me
As I ride like thunder
Riding away with the wind
A lighthearted, melancholy
Saddletramps lament
