“All I Ever Wanted, (Was To Ride The Rodeo)”

I drawed up bad in Dallas,
Bucked off in San Antone..
What we saved up last season-
I know is almost gone.
I’ve got too old and crippled
For the rough stock in more-
It scares me when I think of what-
The future holds in store.

Chorus:
‘Cause all I ever wanted
Was to ride the rodeo.
The big one up in Cheyenne,
And in Boise, Idaho.
To make it to the Finals-
And a buckle made of gold-
All I ever wanted
Was to ride the rodeo.

I broke an arm last August-
Just like you said I would-
December, in the standings
I wasn’t looking good.
The kid’s make me feel foolish
When they’re coming out the gate,
I guess when you are thirty four,
There just ain’t no easy eight.

I said, “This is the last one...”
While walking out the door.
You sure did look disgusted..
Said, “I’ve heard that line before”.
Try to understand me,
Why I load the truck and go-
“Cause all I ever wanted
Was to ride the rodeo.

Live large, people!

You got tumbleweeds in your blood, for sure.
