Liner Notes: 

I watched the movie 'Walk The Line' the other night and feeling inspired thought I'd write a song for Johnny Cash to sing. I sent it to my very own JC, Gwyn Jones, who obliged in performing it for me!

Lyrics: 

EVERY PRETTY LADY
(c) 2020 Georgie Cooper
Performed by Gwyn Jones

Every pretty lady got a secret she ain’t willin’ to reveal
And if you knew you might think less of me
Every pretty face got a power she can use at any time
Just one wink and I’m outta my mind

CHORUS
She can have me
She can rule me
My heart is hers for doing what she will
She is my master
I’m her puppet on a string
And she knows I can’t resist

Every pretty lady got a shadow guy that follows her around
Under her spell he’s like a loyal hound
Every pretty face got a story of a man who cain’t let her go
And if you knew you might not hate her so

CHORUS
She can have me
She can rule me
My heart is hers for doing what she will
She is my master
I’m her puppet on a string
And she knows I can’t resist

BRIDGE
Pretty ladies all have a certain charm
And every man wants one on his arm

Every pretty lady got a real proud mama and a worried dad
He knows the thoughts of each young man
Every pretty face got a duty to her girlfriends to play nice
She knows the thoughts of each young wife

CHORUS
She can have me
She can rule me
My heart is hers for doing what she will
She is my master
I’m her puppet on a string
And she knows I can’t resist

That's a great opening line, and I'm hearing a nice but of Elvis in here too, which is appropriate. Right in the pocket. And just a darn fun listen. I'm liking the suggestive third verse, wow, sneaky. Great stuff.
