I fell in love with your sound
Oh I love to sing along with you…

Babe we both had dry spells
Hard times in bad lands
I’m a good man – for ya
I’m a good man…

Last night there was a horse in the road
I was twisting in the hairpin
My hands held on my mind let go
And back to you my heart went skipping

I found the inside of the road
Thought about the first time that I met you
All those glances that we stole
Sometimes if you want them then you’ve got to…

You’re not a good shot but I’m worse
And there’s so much where we ain’t been yet
So swing up on this little horse
The only thing we’ll hit is sunset…

Babe we both had dry spells
Hard times in bad lands
I’m a good man for ya
I’m a good man

Editor’s Note: Whenever I hear Josh Ritter’s ‘Good Man,’
there are two men from the old West in my mind’s eye. In love.
Excerpted here is a selection from the lyrics that take me there.
Josh Ritter is a lovely singer and gifted lyricist.
I hope you’ll listen to the song. – kh
