It’s Rodeo Time

February 6, 2009

I can hear the wind whisper my name
Tellin’ me it’s time to head out again
My 29ers are racked and the beer iced down
I’m long overdue for headin’ outta town
Gotta fever that they call the 12 hour rodeo
Just enough winnings to make the next show
Sometimes you make twelve, sometimes you hit the wall,
Go on pin another number to the front of my bars!

And I’ll ride that hardtail fast
Like a cowboy from the past
Be young and wild and free
Like Texas in 1880
Just like Texas in 1880

Awe, from Terlingua to Austin to the Astro Dome
From Palo Duro Canyon down to San Antone
There’s boys that are ridin’ for legendary fame. And our money’s all gone but I still ride the same.
My heart’s a gettin’ broken

And my body’s gettin’ busted
I’ll always believe in the things that I trusted
They’ll be those nights when glory comes round
And I’ll tip my beer and wave to the crowd

And I’ll ride that hardtail fast
Like a cowboy from the past
Be young and wild and free
Like Texas in 1880
Just like Texas in 1880

Someday when you’re older someone’ll see
That trophy hangin’ there on your wall
Askin’ just how it felt…

And I’ll ride that hardtail fast
Like a cowboy from the past
Be young and wild and free
Like Texas in 1880
Just like Texas in 1880

(paraphrased from Radney Foster’s Texas in 1880)

Look for a race report early next week for this weekend’s Dirty Dozen 12 hour MTB race at Warda, TX. Everybody have a good weekend!
