She's a barmaid in a west Texas dance hall
She's there ev'ry night till they close
And the cowboy's pay for the jukebox
And she plays 'San Antonio Rose'
Well I know her life ain't been easy
And the lines in her face say it all
But she still is a beautiful woman
In the lights of the Texas dance hall
But she won't sit down at your table
And I know that you can't hold her hand
She won't go home with you cowboy
She's in love with a rodeo man
Well he's hard and he's scarred and he's grayin'
And he's stoned most all of the time
And he drinks at a dark corner table
And he waits there until closin' time
