By David Allan Coe

I COULD WALK ACROSS KANSAS IN A NEW YORK MINUTE
CLIMB THE COLORADO MOUNTAINS IN THE FALL
CRAWL THROUGH ARIZONA LIKE A FLAT LAND LIZARD
IF I THOUGHT IT'D DO ME ANY GOOD AT ALL
I COULD SWIM LAKE ERIE WITH MY HANDS TIED BEHIND ME
EAT A WEST VIRGINIA COAL MINER'S SHOES
DRINK THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER IF IT TOOK A MONTH OF SUNDAYS
JUST TO PROVE MY LOVE TO YOU

CHORUS:
I REMEMBER WELL THE FIRST TIME I KISSED YOU
CUSS THINGS AIN'T BEEN THE SAME EVER SINCE
YOU GOT ME THINKIN' I COULD EAT A TEN-PENNY NAIL
AND SPIT OUT A BARBED WIRE FENCE
WELL THERE AIN'T A LIVING CREATURE GONNA EVER COME BETWEEN US
I FIGHT LIONS SNAKES AND GORILLAS TOO
IF THAT AIN'T ENOUGH I'D START IT ALL OVER
JUST TO PROVE MY LOVE TO YOU

I COULD RIDE MY PONY THROUGH THE EYE OF A HURRICANE
CLIMB MOUNT EVEREST ON A STRING
JUMP NIAGARA FALLS IN A BURNIN' BARREL
AND BRING YA BACK A HOOP SMOKE RING
WRESTLE ALLIGATORS IN THE OKEFENOKEE
THERE'S NOTHIN' THAT I WOULDN'T DO
IF YOU JUST SAY THE WORD
I'D CATCH THAT GREAT SPECKLED BIRD
AND BRING IT BACK TO YOU

CHORUS:
I REMEMBER WELL THE FIRST TIME I KISSED YOU
'cause THINGS AIN'T BEEN THE SAME EVER SINCE
YOU GOT ME THINKING I COULD EAT A TEN-PENNY NAIL
AND SPIT OUT A BARBED WIRE FENCE
WELL THERE AIN'T A LIVING CREATURE GONNA EVER COME BETWEEN US
I FIGHT LIONS SNAKES AND GORILLAS TOO
IF THAT AIN'T ENOUGH I'D START IT ALL OVER
JUST TO PROVE MY LOVE TO YOU

I COULD WALK ACROSS KANSAS IN A NEW YORK MINUTE
CLIMB THE COLORADO MOUNTAINS IN THE FALL
CRAWL THROUGH ARIZONA LIKE A FLAT LAND LIZARD
IF I THOUGHT IT'D DO ME ANY GOOD AT ALL
I COULD SWIM LAKE ERIE WITH MY HANDS TIED BEHIND ME
EAT A WEST VIRGINIA COAL MINER'S SHOES
