Lyrics

I’M A MAVERICK’S DAUGHTER
© Tom Manche

The only bad thing about falling in love is the leaving.
I couldn’t bear to linger there and tell him eye to eye.
Instead I left a note behind, this simple sad goodbye:

I’m a maverick’s daughter
It’s in my blood to roam
I’m a maverick’s daughter
The open road’s my home
Like a tree needs water
That’s how I need you
But I’m a maverick’s daughter
And I’m a maverick, too.

Well, he finally caught up to me somewhere down around Tulsa.
Another day and I’d have been halfway to who-knows-where.
I told him, babe, I love you so, but we’re both fools to care, ‘cause--

I’m a maverick’s daughter
It’s in my blood to roam
I’m a maverick’s daughter
The open road’s my home
Like a tree needs water
That’s how I need you
But I’m a maverick’s daughter
And I’m a maverick, too.

My old daddy was a travelin’ man.
He meant the world to me
And when he died he left me with his longing to be free.

Like a tree needs water
That’s how I need you

But I’m a maverick’s daughter
And I’m a maverick, too.
