You were just like me
In the game of life with your playing too lose
I was William Tell
I was the devil himself
Two characters in search of a country song
Two characters been listin' all night long

at a hundred per
But the road went on
You were Calamity Jane

Just make believe, but so in love
for voices from Nashville above

Just make believe, but so in love
for voices from Nashville above
