(Larry Boone/Paul Nelson/Tracy Lawrence)

A cup of coffee with the first sunlight
At a last chance Texaco
I'm thumbin' through a worn out road map
Tryin' to decide which way to go
These empty miles and her memory
They just seem to linger on
She left me on this lost highway
Wonderin' why and where she's gone

That's how a cowgirl breaks a young man's heart
That's how my whole world slowly came apart
With a cold and empty stare
As if I wasn't there
She didn't even stop to cry
That's how a cowgirl says goodbye

Called up her mama in Abilene
Just to find out how she'd been
She said she'd stopped awhile in San Antone
To spend some time with an old friend
With all this distance in between us
I'm sure I never cross her mind
And it may take all these roads ahead
Just to leave it all behind

That's how a cowgirl breaks a young man's heart
That's how my whole world slowly came apart
With a cold and empty stare
As if I wasn't there
Didn't even stop to cry
That's how a cowgirl says goodbye

That's how a cowgirl breaks a young man's heart
That's how my whole world slowly came apart
With a cold and empty stare
As if I wasn't there
She didn't even stop to cry
I guess that's how a cowgirl says goodbye
