Chris Ledoux – Cowboy's Got The Ride lyrics

Well you mama finds it hard to understand
Why her lovin' son wants to be a rodeo man
And your daddy had a whole lotta great big plans for you
You hate to disappoint him but you gotta other things to do
Now, your best girl thinks it's time you settle down
You finally graduated and she's ready for a wedding gown
But there's a great big world just waintin' out there for you
And if she really loves you she can wait another year or two
And nobody really knows how you feel inside
The road gets rough and the goin' gets tough but you know you've gotta try
And there ain't no way they're ever gonna change your mind
Don't everybody know that a cowboys got to ride

Now your high school buddies say man you've gone insane
Don't you know rodeo is a crazy foolish game
But you can see in their eyes a little jealousy
They're all workin' nine to five you're footloose and fancy free
And nobody really knows...
Don't everybody know that a cowboys got to ride
