Iíll rosin up my lucky glove-
Thereís something Ďbout the life I love.
I sure would like to make the PBR.
But Iím over thirty now...
I never was that great nohow...
I guess Iíll have to take things as they are.

Chorus:

Goldthwaite, Brownwood, Waco shows-
Smalltime pots, thatís how it goes...
I barely win enough so we can eat...
Still Iím goiní down the road-
The only life Iíve ever knowed...
The freedom that I feel cannot be beat.

Chorus:

Ridiní bulls is where itís at-
I guess my wife canít fathom that...
I canít imagine why sheís still around..
Now Iím watchiní both my boys..
Buckiní barrels their favorite toys-
I guess thatís why she always wears a frown.

Chorus:
But thereís somethiní Ďbout a rodeo
That gets down in your soul.
That makes you save up entry fees-
And sleep out in the cold....
Ridiní hurt and missiní meals-
Denying that youíre old-
Thereís just somethiní Ďbout the rodeo
That gets down in your soul.

I guess it's like the ocean - once it's in your blood - it stays there...

I saw a rodeo when I visited the West... and I could see that feeling emanating from the people there...

Nice job, GS..

Good work, 'slinger. I'm reminded of that sage piece of Western advice...."Never squat with your spurs on!"
