The Cowboy and the Beauty
The Cowboy and the Beauty
He rode rough into town, none the worse to wear
Only thing on his mind was a bed and a beer
When out of the corner of his tired eyes
He saw a vision of beauty, nearly made him cry
She was blond and blue eyed, the fairest of fair
All he could do was sit on his horse and stare
She would hardly notice, this dirt-coated man
Just another darn cowboy, who might want her hand
He jumped off his horse, and stood there in awe
Took off his hat and stuttered and paused
A great big grin crossed his tired worn face
He began to recover, forgot the cattle he’d chased
The beauty took notice of this tall cowboy
Simply standing there not hiding his joy
Her heart did weaken at his little boy grin
And she decided to smile, it would be not a sin
Well, you would of thought that the cowboy had died
But he brushed off his hat and stood there with pride
Ma'am you are the prettiest thing my eyes ever did see
And I promised myself I'd do this, so don't disagree
I was playing some poker one night on some ranch
And another old cowboy bet this, quite by chance
You should of seen the shock on all their ole faces
When with a straight flush, I beat his four aces
I promised myself the first beauty I did see
I would ask if my bride she surely might be
Then out of his pocket he pulled a gold ring
Bent down on a knee and proposed this one thing
Well, now it was Miss Fancy's turn to stand there and stare
She hemmend and she hawed and played with her hair
She looked at this cowboy, he was kind of cute
But she knew to a cowboy, she just would not suit
She opened her mouth and softly she spoke
This cowboy was lookin' to have his heart broke
She kindly and gently declined his gold ring
But she promised to do this one little thing
Then out in the street for all there to see
They began to dance so happy and free
Her white dress was swirling, as they spun round and round
A happier couple not one could not be found
The cowboy and the beauty, this moment in time
Forgot all their heartaches, and danced mighty fine
He forgot that his love had been unrequited
And he settled for a dance that she had invited
Author's Notes:
Dedicated to the sweetest cowboy I know, Bear.

I don't know how I missed this one Cindy, this is one of the sweetest stories I've ever read! While it doesn't have the classic "Fairytale" ending, it still ends happily. You did yourself proud here Cindy, great writing!  Henry

This story held my attention from start to finish.
This line tripped me, "A happier couple not one could not be found", I think it needs some re-vamping.
Nicely done! =))

Hey wait....I live here in Texas. BUT, I'm not a cowboy. But I did ride a horse once...and not once did I fall off! I may have fallen off twice or more, but I never fell off once. Cool write of the west Ms Cindy Bendel!

Cindy, this is the second time that I have read this piece. It is just as good this time as it was the first time. I sure did enjoy it to come back for seconds. Kind of like eating cake or pie--you only go back for seconds on the really special ones.
