"Cowgirls Don't Cry" as written by Ronnie Dunn and Terry Mcbride....
Her daddy gave her, her first pony
Then taught her to ride
She climbed high in that saddle
Fell I don't know how many times
He taught her a lesson that she learned
Maybe a little too well

Cowgirls don't cry, ride, baby, ride
Lessons in life are gonna show you in time
Soon enough you gonna know why
It's gonna hurt every now and then
If you fall get back on again
Cowgirls don't cry

She grew up, she got married
But never was quite right
She wanted a house, a home and babies
He started comin' home late at night
She didn't let him see it break her heart
She didn't let him see her fall apart

'Cause cowgirls don't cry, ride, baby, ride
Lessons of life are gonna show you in time
Soon enough you gonna know why
It's gonna hurt every now and then
If you fall get back on again
Cowgirls don't cry

Phone rang early one mornin'
Her momma's voice, she'd been cryin'
Said it's your daddy, you need to come home
This is it, I think he's dyin'
She laid the phone down by his head
Last words that he said

Cowgirls don't cry, ride, baby, ride
Lessons of life show us all in time
Too soon God will let you know why
If you fall get right back on
The good Lord calls everybody home
Cowgirl don't cry.

    General CommentThis is a great song, inspired by one of country's giants...Reba. While I love this version, I loved even more
    hearing Reba lend her voice to the song at the 42nd CMAs. I cried at the end. These three friends sounded perfect
    together, just like always.

    General Commentthis song is the life of many.unlike i,though,it is exactly as it is played.
    a girl gets a pony,father teaches her to ride it,the girl falls now and again,
    the father telling her it may hurt but just keep trying.,the girl grows up,gets
    married to a low life whos doesn't love her back,the husband comes home late alot,
    the girl gets a call from her mother that her father is dying,the last words he said
    were words he repeated to the girl and the girl always remembered,then the father dies.
    sad but true for alot,as i have said before.
