Well it really has been nice bein' with ya but I'm afraid that I've got to leave
As you know I'm a rodeo cowboy there's a rodeo down in Mesquite
That's the life of a rodeo cowboy breakin' broncs or getting' broke
That's the life of a rodeo cowboy and that's the only life I know
On the day you think your day is gonna be the big one
And I'll be walkin' away with all that they own
But then your lyin' hurtin' hearin' someone sayin'
Ah give him a hand that's all that cowboy is taking home
Hot beer and cold stale hamburgers makes a meal sorta hard to enjoy
And it kinda makes you think of your momma's chicken
Ah but that's the life of a rodeo cowboy
When your down and your really feelin' sorry well you go for a drink in some bar
Then someone points at you and you hear him whisper
Hey over there stands a rodeo star
When your down...
