RODEO COWBOY (G Sutton) as recorded by Lynn Anderson 1972 I met him in Wyomin' at the Cheyenne Rodeo, Just a kid in pigtails of thirteen at the time. I remember how I cheered the day he rode a horse called Midnight, And I vowed that someday that cowboy would be mine! I followed him to Denver where we became good friends; We'd sit around the chutes and talk while he was killin' time. He'd laugh and tell me stories, but he never mentioned stayin', For the next town and the rodeo were always on his mind. He's a rodeo cowboy, he follows the circuit, Where top money's paid, that's where he'll be found. The only thing he owns is a horse and silver saddle; Rodeo cowboy, he'll never settle down! In Salt Lake City Utah he told me that he loved me, But still I knew he wasn't born to be the settlin' kind, For with tomorrow's sun he'd pack up that old freighter And leave all thoughts of me and love a hundred miles behind! The last time that I saw him was in Amarillo Texas; I'm still in love with him although he can't be mine. But I'll always keep that shiny silver buckle that he gave me, Reads, "All Around Cowboy Of Nineteen Sixty Nine" He's a rodeo cowboy, he follows the circuit, Where top money's paid, that's where he'll be found. The only thing he owns is a horse and silver saddle; Rodeo cowboy, he'll never settle down! He's a rodeo cowboy, he'll never settle down, (Transcribed by Peter Akers - June 2017)
