Story

At a very fun songwriting retreat in Canada, which featured vocal classes with Grammy Award Winner Kathy Mattea, and songwriting with her Grammy Award Winning husband Jon Vezner, we had an assignment to co-write a song.  I happily sat down with Canadians Darla Cooper and Karen Hatch, who are in a Victoria B.C. band called....get ready....THE CHICKWAGON!  We spent a delightful afternoon writing this song and sang it for the gang after dinner.  Having meals with Kathy Mattea and Jon Vezner, well, it doesn't get much better than that...oh and Trish was there too!   Joan

Lyrics

Business suits, stockings and heels

Puttin' up my hair for all those business deals

For now it's enough just knowin'

What is is that keeps me goin'

    CHORUS

    Friday night I let my hair down

    At the Golden Spur Saloon

    Night and day I'm in a different world

    Friday night I'm doin' a two-step

    And I'm just one of the girls

    I'm alive when I'm in my boots and pearls

One of these days I'm gonna find a way

To ditch these designer duds and wear jeans every day

For now, it's enough just knowin'

What it is that keeps me goin'

    CHORUS

Mama gave me these pearls and they mean so much to me

I feel her spirit every time I let my soul run free, like

    Friday night I let my hair down

    At the Golden Spur Saloon

    Night and day I'm livin' in a different world

    Friday night I'm doin' a two-step

    And I'm just one of the girls

    I'm alive when I'm in my boots and pearls

    I'm alive when I'm in my boots and pearls
