By David Allan Coe

Special Guests: Gut Clark vocal on first verse, Larry Jon Wilson vocal on last verse, and Rattlesnake Annie and Ladysmith on harmony.

Dedication: To all the bikers, truckers and cowboys, that I've rode with. Take it easy riders.

TAKE IT EASY RIDER YOU CAN MAKE IT EASY RIDER

THERE'S NO ONE TO STOP YOU, DOESN'T IT LOOK EASY RIDER NOW?

TAKE IT EASY RIDER YOU CAN MAKE IT EASY RIDER

THERE'S NO ONE TO STOP YOU, DOESN'T IT LOOK EASY RIDER NOW?

WELL I SAW MY FIRST RODEO IN AMARILLO, TEXAS

BUSTING BRONCOS IS MORE THAN JUST A WAY TO MAKE A LIVING

HORSES WERE LIKE WOMEN, THEY WERE FAST AND FANCY FREE



I SAW SHIRLEY STOKER UP IN PAN HEAD WEST VIRGINIA

HER AND CONNIE SHOVELHEAD WAS STANDING IN THE RAIN

BOTH OF THEM WERE DRESSERS, LORD THEY SURE WERE LOOKING PRETTY

MOTORCYCLE FEVER HAS ALMOST DROVE ME INSANE



EIGHTEEN WERE ROLLIN WHEN I CLIMBED UP IN THAT KEN WORTH

ME OH MY, THAT SEMI WAS THE APPLE OF MY EYE

HORSES, TRUCKS AND MOTORCYCLES SURE MAKES LIFE WORTH LIVING

HOPE I NEVER SEE THE DAY I KISS THEM ALL GOOD BYE
