True Lovin' Eyes
 
Lyrics
VERSE
He's a dashing young cowboy workin' hard; he's home on the range
Spendin' weeks ridin' herd on a horse he calls Paint
But when the work is all done, somethin' inside starts to change
He's not sure she's still waitin'; Lord knows, there aren't many saints

VERSE
He rides [alt. word: drives] through the night wonderin' what he will find
As the sun makes the day, him and Paint almost there
Temperature risin,' takin' a toll on his mind
But when she meets his gaze, he knows what they will share

CHORUS
('Cause) She has true lovin' eyes
There's no way she could disguise
Her true love for him when he arrives
And he knows what it means when he sees her true lovin' eyes

VERSE
Hearts runnin' fast, but they're tryin' hard to go slow
What happens next would surely make most anyone blush
It's a ragin' fire that everyone should know
Now they're takin' their time because there's no need to rush

Repeat CHORUS

BRIDGE
The doubt that surrounds them each time he leaves
They've come to know is just how it will be

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
Yes, he knows what it means when he sees her true lovin' eyes

Description
Short Song Description:
They fell in love, but he was a cowboy, and it was hard to commit. Nonetheless, every time he could, he went to her no matter how long it took. Of course, since he had been gone a while, he did not know what to expect when he got there; that is, until, each time, he saw her "true lovin' eyes."
Long Song Description:

Story Behind the Song:
I once saw a movie scene where an actress, in a close-up with an actor, had what looked to me to be "true lovin' eyes." I simply imagined the cowboy story.
