Boots Like Emmy Lou's Lyrics

Boots Like Emmy Lou's - Janis Ian

If I had boots like Emmy Lou's

I'd be a diggle star

 

Rhinestones on my bvd's

And a hummingbird guitar

 

I'd buy myself the biggest bus

That ever graced the track

 

With a loveseat for the two of us

And a swimming pool in back

 

If I had boots like Emmy Lou's

 

I'd wear my hair like Loretta used to do

 

I'd sing like patsy cline

And kitty wells combined

 

If I had boots like Emmy Lou's

I'd never need a shine

 

If I had boots like Emmy Lou's

I'd be so very rich

 

I'd hire a dog to scratch me

Every time I got an itch

 

I'd buy a thousand cadillacs

With longhorns on the front

 

Drive one till the ashtray filled

Then haul it to the dump

 

If I had boots like Emmy Lou's

I'd wear my hair like Loretta used to do

 

I'd sing like patsy cline

 

And kitty wells combined

 

If I had boots like Emmy Lou's

I'd never need a shine

 

I'd buy my clothes from nudie

Have fingernails like Tammy

I'd tease my hair like Dolly

And measure ten feet tall

I'd teach those boots to talk

Play that string in New York

 

If I had boots like Emmy Lou's

I'd never need to walk

 

If I had boots like Emmy Lou's

I'd die without a care

 

Fly straight up to heaven's gate

And push my way in there

 

And when saint peter asked me

What I'd done to be so bold

 

I'd point down to my boots and say

They're recently resoled

 

So fit me for a robe wings and halo too

 

But I can't stay if you take away

My boots like Emmy Lou's

 

If I had boots like Emmy Lou's

 

I'd wear my hair like Loretta used to do

 

I'd sing like patsy cline

 

And kitty wells combined

 

If I had boots like Emmy Lou's

I'd never need a shine

 

If I had boots like Emmy Lou's

 

I'd never need a shine
