Driving all night too many miles to go
Pedal tot he metal listenin' to the radio
I got three days to get from Cheyenne to San Antone
That's the life of a cowboy ridin' the rodeo

My back side's sore and I'm movin' kinda slow
But when I hit Okie City there's a barrel racer that I know
A little home cookin' and some lovin' to heal my bones
That's the life of a cowboy ridin' the rodeo

Ride cowboy ride hold on for your life
Eight seconds is a long long time when you're sitting on dynamite
You can't make money buddy if get thrown
That's the life of a cowboy ridin' the rodeo

Well I might get lucky down in San Antone
Find a little Texas girl I could call my own
That lone star lovin's the best I've ever known
That's the life of a cowboy ridin' the rodeo

Ride cowboy ride hold on for your life
Eight seconds is a long long time when you're sitting on dynamite
You can't make money buddy if get thrown
That's the life of a cowboy ridin' the rodeo

That's the life of a cowboy ridin' the rodeo
