Corb Lund - The Horse I Rode In On

rate me

The show was a big one, an olde rodeo They'd been trying to hire us for a few years or so The grandstand was bursting, the infield was full They'd run all the chucks and they'd bucked all the bulls I felt stiff in the saddle, had been a year since I'd rode And I'd never been on him save an afternoon lope But this was the last thing on my tortured mind As I put heels to belly and my band played the time He was a big sorrel gelding with a golden streaked mane A silver mounted saddle and hand braided reins He had one blue eye that was clear like the rain But the horse I rode in on felt none of my pain Well we made quite an entrance in show business style And twelve thousand people all witnessed my smile But you were not there among them I'm sorry to say As I rode through the crowd toward the big outdoor stage If my pony was skittish with all the people around And if he spooked just a little when the spotlight shone down It's nothing compared to the heart break and pain That come with a love that has withered in vain So we played through the show and like I always do I sang every one of the love songs for you Then I climbed right back on him and I spurred him away And as the cheers and the dust from the arena did fade I didn't feel like no cowboy anymore, anyway
