The handsome cowgirl tipped her black Charlie 1 Horse hat;
"Howdy ma'am, I'm Levi.  Is this lop-sided barstool taken?"

She could feel her C & W heart, for some reason was breaking apart.

"Hea, lonesome cowgirl strayin.'
I'll shoot down a shot if you're payin,"
this lesbian rodeo cowgirl replied in eight seconds.
"But if you're thinkin' we're gonna make love
in a cozy bunk, then you're very confused."

"Naw, I'm not confused.  Just horse-saddle sore
an' cow-hoof bruised."

"And just what kind of cowpoke name is Levi
may I ask?"
the sassy cowgirl ribbed, chuggin' beer from a yard

The come-to-town-once-a-month cowgirl remained calm,
just burnished a callous and rubbed her rope-burned

Many antique wringer washings
she'd been teasingly asked about the
shrink-to-fit 501 button fly, cowgirl-cut
Levi blue jean name she

Now she wasn't about to rivet her pocket with a
but she wasn't entitled to know.
Her name Levi was decided from early on,
in a foster ranch house

As quiet as a Custer County
her unknown mother gave birth
to her in a country

A rancher and his infertile wife came in to
saw their new miracle baby wrapped up
inside the faded denim leg of a Levi

A silver horseshoe locket and a burlap
birth tag hung from her tiny toe.
"This buckarette is up for country
I'm sorry God, cuz I have no other

"And I s'pose Wrangler is the name of
your no-competition cow pony," sassed the
as Levi rolled smoke from her Bull-Durham

"Naw, my horse's name is Denim, Wrangler is my

Levi pulled a jukebox quarter from her double-stitched
noticed she was lookin' at a picture in her silver-heart

"Twitty's gone; why'd ya have to pick that remindful
'Tight-fittin' Jeans'
Can't ya see, somethin's

"Yep, I've finished this whiskey
tell ya what I think.
It's not that I think you've always been
sassy an' conceited,
but I think you've somehow been recently

"My mama recently died,
told me she had
Said she named me Jean in the early
but I wasn't born to her at
Found me stuffed inside the leg of a
pair of Levi jeans, sittin' on a country church
along with this birth
A burlap tag and this heart locket, hung from
my tiny toe.
"This buckarette is up for country
Like I had to to with her sister,
twice, I'm sorry God, cuz I still have no other

As quiet as a Custer County
her unknown mother gave birth
to her in a country church

"This picture in the locket is my real
don't know anything 'bout my real sister

Levi got an instant lump in her throat.
Pulled her keepsake baby toe tag and horseshoe
from the inside of her cowgirl duster coat

A sister and a sister cut from the same
Levi brand.

She showed her the same orphan
their blue new-found sibling eyes started to tear.

Do you know, this is soooooooooo effective.... there's a great story-line running through this, but all I can think is the sexy advertising... and that FRUSTRATES me to think I am just yer average sucker for marketing.. works though, huh??? BUT I RESPECT YOUR ART, DARLIN... HONEST!!!! :)) You are so bloody sassy, Sweetwater...
