Well, it really has been nice bein' with you
But I'm afraid that I've got to leave
As you know I'm a rodeo cowboy
And there's a rodeo down in Mesquite

That's the life of a rodeo cowboy, breakin' broncs or gettin' broke
That's the life of a rodeo cowboy and that's the only life I know

On the day you think your day is the big one
I'm walkin' away with all that they own
Then you're lyin', hurtin', hearin' someone saying
Give him a hand that's all that cowboy is taking home

Hot beer and cold stale hamburgers
Makes a meal sorta hard to enjoy
And it kinda makes you think of momma's chicken

Ah, that's the life of a rodeo cowboy
That's the life of a rodeo cowboy

When you're down and you're really feeling sorry
Well, you go for a drink in some bar
Then someone points at you
And you hear him whisper over there stands a rodeo star

That's the life of a rodeo cowboy
That's the life of a rodeo cowboy
