I'm gonna shine up my boots
I'm gonna go into town
I'm gonna scrape up twenty dollars
I'm gonna throw it around

I'm gonna buy me a dance
First lovely lady that I see
And when our dance is through
I'll say "Will you marry me?"

I'm gonna find me a game
Of hold 'em if I can
And fold 'em all night long
Till I got me a hand

I'm gonna buy us a ranch
With a palomino herd
And I won't mean no harm, babe
And I won't say a word

When Misery comes to call
I'll give to him my life
I'll set with him awhile
And share my horse, my home, my wife

I'm gonna shine up my boots
I'm gonna go into town
I'm gonna scrape up twenty dollars
I'm gonna throw it around

I'm gonna shine up my boots
I'm gonna go into town
I'm gonna scrape up twenty dollars
But I'll probly just drink it down
