Vegas in the summer, is one twenty in the shade-
But itís lovely in December, when the Finals have been made.
You are so doggone itchy, canít wait till it begins-
Youíve made it to the Finals, all you have to do is win.

Eighty thousand miles this year, youíve had a lot of luck-
At drawing bulls who werenít too mean, and horses that could buck.
Youíve only gotten hung up twice, and neither time was bad-
You rode them hard, and spurred them clean, and gave it all you had.

Youíve had some honest judges, the horses were the same-
The times that youíve been goose-egged, you know you were to blame,
Ten times youíll try your hand out here, then it all begins again-
Youíve made it to the Finals, all you have to do is win.

All you ever wanted, was to ride the Rodeo-
To sack your clothes and rigginí and to go on down the road.
Youíve tried your hand on real rough stock, and rougher, meaner men-
Youíve made it to the Finals, all you have to do is win.

Ah, It's amazing how much you can write about cowboys and Rodeos and still keep my attention. You are indeed a master story teller
