Amy England Summertown: Listen

Lasso Your Love

Dreaming of Texas on Nantucket, at the Atheneum used book sale I came across a book by Betty Cavana called "Lasso Your Heart". Lovely, with pictures and all. My good friend & book sale companion Becky came up with "Lasso Your Love", so I didn't have to rip Betty off completely. Thank you Betty! Thank you Becky!
You came into town looking so fine I says I’m going to make you mine.
You say you can’t understand How a woman like me could have you for her man
You say you’re the kind to roam, Never stay too long at home.
You say you are wild and free, I say that’s all right with me

I’m going to lasso your love
Rope in your heart
Lace up these boots little darling
Going to walk your mile

I’ll just let you come to me, handsome cowboy, wait & see
You’ll be surprised how easily I’ll come to you just loving me
I’m wild too boy you might find You have met your match this time
One lonely night you come to me, show you how wild this love can be

I’m going to lasso your love Rope in your heart
Lace up these boots little darling Going to walk your mile

Easy now boy come a little closer, steady now it’s a one way ride
Easy now boy come a little closer, saddle up here by my side
Come inside where it’s sweet & warm Come in here out of the storm
Come inside my arms will hold you Out of sight & out of harm…

I’m going to lasso your love Rope in your heart
Lace up these boots little darling Going to walk your mile
Repeat
