The Road To Cheyenne

Author:
He was driving down the road in his pickup truck
Almost out of gas and fresh outta luck
Chasing the dream that he loves, called rodeo

It'll be another night in a cheap hotel
There ain't no hot water but it's just as well
A couple hours sleep and he's back on the road again

The road to Cheyenne is long and lean
The horses and bulls can be ornery and mean
They can change your life in the blink of an eye
The night is so cold it cuts like a knife
Eight seconds to glory it's the ride of your life
That's all that really matters ,,,, on the road to Cheyenne

They say the ride isn't all that long
Till you're up in the saddle then you gotta be strong
When they pull that gate ... you're out there on your own

On the back of a bull almost killed two men
You wonder why you'd risk your life again
There isn't much money and it damn sure ain't for the fame

The road to Cheyenne is long and lean
The horses and bulls can be ornery and mean
They can change your life in the blink of an eye
The night is so cold it cuts like a knife
Eight seconds to glory it's the ride of your life
That's all that really matters ,,,, on the road to Cheyenne
