Rose Maddox — Tall Men lyrics

I wish I was a kisstree a growing in the ground
And everytime my sweet pass by I'd throw some kisses down
He's big and tall and handsome but bashful as can be
I know he wants them kisses of mine but he won't climb the tree
I love a tall man he ain't a small man my man is all man and the only one for me
[ guitar ]
He shys away from women he simply disappears
Well he rides all day and he sleeps all night with a horse and a herd of steers
That cowpoke he ain't human they say that he prepares
To go to be with the sixgun on and never take off his spurs
But I love a tall man he ain't a small man my man is all man and the only one for me
[ guitar ]
One night out on the prairie the moon was shining bright
He put his arms around about me and things were going right
He talk and talk of Texas and drawed his Texas draw
When the moon went down and the sun came up nobody kissed me at all
But I love a tall man he ain't a small man my man is all man and the only one for me
[ guitar ]
I wish I was a kisstree out on the lone prairie
And everytime my sweet pass by he'd steal a kiss from me
And if he weants more kisses here's all he has t know
Just cut me down and in a Texas town and watch them kisses grow
I love a tall man he ain't a small man my man is all man and the only one for me
