The Things I Want
Harold Roy Miller

There are three main things I want out of life:
a good-running truck, a calm horse and a hard-working wife.
These are the kind of blessings that always make me smile
and makes my otherwise humdrum life seem worthwhile.

The kind of truck I want to drive doesn't ever overheat/
It has four-wheel drive, a king cab and the engine runs real sweet.
The battery and tires are good and the radio has no static.
It has power steering and cruise control, and the tranny is automatic.

I can take it on a long trip or a cross-country course
and it will pull a trailer with ease whether its furniture or a horse.
It has a nice paint job, always starts right up
and has a console space where I can set my coffee cup.

The kind of horse I want is one who gives me a neigh
whenever I step out the door to feed him his hay.
He is always calm and relaxed whether tied or under saddle
and I don't have to prepare myself for a horse/human battle.

He has a disposition that is totally sweet and nice
and I pick him up him for a song, not an over inflated price.
He is just the right size with conformation that rocks
and has "chrome" on his body and at least two white socks.

Now the kind of woman I want has a voice as sweet as honey
and when we go shopping, doesn't spend all our money.
She looks the other way when we drive by a shoe store
and swears she has enough of them and doesn't need any more.

She has a full-time job and doesn't lust after bling
She'd rather have horse tack than an expensive diamond ring.
Her idea of having fun is riding horses and walking dogs,
or sitting around reading the Bible or western catalogs.

Yes, there are three main things I want out of life:
a good-running truck, a calm horse and a hard-working wife.
I've always thought if I had these, I'd be as blessed as can be
and I am, as a matter of fact, because I already have all three.
