Uncle Slim had let her know she couldn't ride that horse
He was the one that was only meant for men
She walked around till way after dark
Rode that horse with all her heart
And in the night how she rode

[Chorus]
Somehow she always knew she had the strength inside
And even if she fell she'd survive
In spite of all the tears she may cry
This is how she has to live her life
As hard as it may be, she has to find out for herself

Mama and daddy told her from the start he was no good
They'd seen how he treated the other girls
She waited around till the sun went down
Slipped out of the house not makin' a sound
And in the night oh how they drove

[Chorus]

It was fifteen years to the day he became a stranger in her eyes
In the coldest words of anger
He said without me you won't survive

There's a suitcase in the closet she had packed six months ago
She don't leave a note that's not her style
So she waited around till way after dark
Left that man who broke her heart
Now she's gone, oh she's gone

[Chorus]
