The Perfect Gem

(May 1982)

Every girl you meet
Ain’t like every girl in town
Once in a while your head gets turned around
By a perfect little gem.

The one that’ll light your life
Who’ll love you when she’s mad
And forgive you if you’re bad
That perfect little gem.

And never knowing the future
Trying to forget the past
So a cowboy lives life like it’s his last,
Loving that perfect little gem.

But one day he’ll see too late
That life ain’t jus’ for playing
And in his memory he’ll be paying
The price for losing a perfect little gem.

And that old cowboy —
How he’ll cry so loud
To see her proud
With him — his perfect little gem.
