LYNN ANDERSON lyrics - Rodeo Cowboy

LYNN ANDERSON
"Rodeo Cowboy"

I meet him in Wyoming at the Cheyenne rodeo
Just a kid in pigtails and thirteen at the time
I remember how I cheered the day he rode a horse called Midnight
And I vowed that someday that cowgirl could be mine

Followed him to Denver where we became good friends
We'd sit around the cutes and talk while he was killin' time
He'd laugh and tell me stories but he'd never mention stayin'
For the next town and the rodeo were always on his mind

He's a rodeo cowboy he follows the circuit
Where top money's paid that's where he'll be found
The only thing he owns is a horse and silver saddle
Rodeo cowboy he'll never settle down

In Salt Lake City Utah he told her that he loved her
But still I knew he wasn't born to be the settling kind
For with tomorrow's sun he'd pack up his ol' suitcase
And leave all thoughts of me and love a hundred miles behind

The last time that I saw him was in Amarillo Texas
I'm still in love with him although he can't be mine
But I'll always keep the shinny silver buckle that he gave me
Reads All Around Cowboy of 1969

He's a rodeo cowboy he follows the circuit...
