Horses are running wide open I just gotta ride
To those honky-tonk bars that stay open way past closing time
Songs 'bout free thinkin' and drinkin' sure light my fire
That flame leaves a scar on my heart like an old branding iron

[Chorus:]
She said, "Rodeo man, where are you going?
Don't you know that the life of a cowboy is no good alone?
If you tear down that fence of rusty barbed wire
Then I'll lay down beside you and be your shotgun rider."

Yesterday's nothing but dust I brush off my boots
While I'm wearing out roads, don't you know that I'm sure missing you?
When I leave, you'll be wondering when I'll be back again
Between Texas, and ranchers, and old friends, where do you fit in?

[Chorus]

C'mon

Hey, Rodeo man, where are you going?
Don't you know that the life of a cowboy is no good alone?
If you tear down that fence of rusty barbed wire
Then I'll lay down beside you and be your shotgun rider
Woman, come lay down beside me and be my shotgun rider
