By: Foster & Lloyd
Key of G
Intro: G C Em C
Well I can [Em]hear the wind whisper my name
[G]Telling me it's time to head out again
My h[D]orses ae trailered and the lights are shut down
And I'm [C]long overdue from heading outa town.
Got a fe[Em]ver that they call rodeo
[G]Just enough winning to make the next show
[D]Sometimes you make eight sometimes ya hit dirt
Go on, p[C]in another number to the back of my shirt.
And I'll [G]ride that [D]pony [C]pass, like a [G]cowboy [D]from the [C]past
Be[G]yond their wil[D]dest dre[C]ams, like [G]Texas in [D]188[C]0
Just like [G]Texas in [D]188[C]0.[G] [C] [Em] [C]
Ah from [Em]Phoenix from Tulsa to the Astrodome,
[G]New York City down to San Antone
[D]These boys their riding for legendary fame
And our [C]money's all gone but we ride just the same.
Our h[Em]earts will get broken our heads'll get busted
But[G] we'll always believe the things that we trusted
[D]There'll be those nights when Glory comes round
And we'll [C]tip our hats and wave to the crowd (and then...)
Chorus: (same as before, except leave off last C before going into next
Some[D]day when you're older someone'll see that bu[Em]ckle hanging
there on your belt, they'll [C]ask you just how it felt (to ride....)
