I Can Still Make Cheyenne

In the style of

George Strait

Lyrics

her telephone
rang 'bout a
quarter till nine

she heard his voice
on the other end
of the line
she wondered what
was wrong this time

she never knew
what his calls
might bring
with a cowboy
like him
it could be anything

and she always
expected the worst
in the back
of her mind

he said
it's cold out here
and i'm all alone
didn't make the
short-go again
and i'm comin' home
i know i've been
away too long

i never got a chance
to write or call
and i know this rodeo
has been hard
on us all
but i'll be home soon
and honey is there
somethin' wrong

she said
don't bother
comin' home
by the time
you get here
i'll be long gone

there's
somebody new
and he sure ain't
no rodeo man

he said
i'm sorry it's
come down to this
there's so much
about you
that i'm gonna miss

but it's alright baby
if i hurry i can still
make cheyenne
gotta go now baby
if i hurry i can still
make cheyenne

he left that
phone danglin'
off the hook
then slowly
turned around and
gave it one last look
then he just
walked away

he aimed his truck
toward that
wyoming line
with a little luck
he could still
get there in time

and in that
cheyenne wind
he could still
hear her say

she said
don't bother
comin' home
by the time
you get here
i'll be long gone

there's
somebody new
and he sure ain't
no rodeo man

he said
i'm sorry it's
come down to this
there's so much
about you that
i'm gonna miss

but it's alright baby
if i hurry i can still
make cheyenne
gotta go now baby
if i hurry i can still
make cheyenne

she never knew
what his calls
might bring
with a cowboy
like him
it could be anything

and she always
expected the worst
in the back
of her mind
