Tight Fittin' Jeans
Conway Twitty Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

She tried to hide it by the faded denim clothes she wore
But I knew she'd never been inside a bar before
And I felt just like a peasant, who just had met a queen
And she knew I saw right through her tight fittin' jeans

I asked her what's a woman, like you doin' here?
I see you're used to champagne, but I'll buy you a beer
She said you've got me figured out, but I'm not what I seem
And for a dance I'll tell you 'bout these tight fittin' jeans

She said I married money, I'm used to wearin' pearls
But I've always dreamed of bein' just a good ol' boy's girl
So tonight I left those crystal candle lights to live a dream
And partner there's a tiger in these tight fittin' jeans

We danced every dance, and Lord the beer that we went through
I'm satisfied I did my best to make her dream come true
As she played out her fantasy before my eyes it seemed
A cowgirl came alive inside those tight fittin' jeans

In my mind she's still a lady, that's all I'm gonna say
I knew that I'd been broken by the time we parted ways
And I know I held more women than most eyes have ever seen
That night I knew a lady wearin' tight fittin' jeans

Well, now she's back in her world, and I'm still stuck in mine
But I know she'll always remember the time



A cowboy once had, a millionaire's dream
And Lord I loved that lady wearin' tight fittin' jeans

I realized that I had been emotionally affected by the end of our encounter


And I know I held more women than most eyes have ever seen
I have had relationships with more women than most people have ever witnessed


That night I knew a lady wearin' tight fittin' jeans
That evening, I met a woman who wore tight jeans but still carried herself with class


Well, now she's back in her world, and I'm still stuck in mine
Now she has returned to her high-class lifestyle, and I have remained in my humble ways


But I know she'll always remember the time
I am sure that she will never forget what occurred that night


A cowboy once had, a millionaire's dream
She lived her dream of being with a cowboy, which was something for which she had yearned.


And Lord I loved that lady wearin' tight fittin' jeans
I cherish the memory of that woman who wore tight jeans with class and beauty.
