Instructions to Her Cowgirl Daughter

Don’t cross the street

Don’t stray too far

Don’t swing so high

Don’t wish on a star


Don’t run in that race

Don’t grab the brass ring

Don’t dare to be more

     than I might have been


Don’t wander

Don’t wonder

Don’t spread your sweet wings

Don’t try for the stage or the rodeo ring


Don’t love any boy

Don’t do as you please

Don’t follow your heart

     and don’t ever leave
