Slow Dance

I want to dance a slow dance
with a cowboy tonight.
The stars bright above us
in that big Montana sky.
And he'll say he loves me,
loves me tonight.
I want to dance a slow dance
with a cowboy tonight.

The wind is whispering its love songs
through the Ponderosa Pines,
and here now I am longing
for him to hold me tight.
He'll say he loves me,
loves me tonight.
I want to dance a slow dance
with a cowboy tonight.

He's been missing, been on the road
for such a long time.
I'll laugh and shout his name
as he drives right up the drive.
He'll say he loves me,
loves me tonight.
I want to dance a slow dance
with a cowboy tonight.

I want to dance a slow dance
with my cowboy tonight.
Harvest moon is glowing
through the slivery pines.
He'll say he loves me,
loves me tonight.
I want to dance a slow dance
with my cowboy tonight.

2004, Barb Kopietz

About Barb Kopietz:

My name is Barb Kopietz and I live in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I live in the city but my heart has always been with the west and cowboys. I worked as a babysitter for two summers on a ranch in Helena, Montana when I was fourteen and fifteen years old. That is when I learned to ride and about ranch life. I also learned to love the state of Montana. The poem was inspired by my last night when I did dance with a cowboy under that big
Montana Sky.  I went on to live in the city and raise a family of five boys.
