Texas in 1880

Key of G
Intro: G C Em C
Well I can hear the wind whisper my name
Telling me it's time to head out again
My horses ae trailered and the lights are shut down
And I'm long overdue from heading outa town.
Got a fever that they call rodeo
Just enough winning to make the next show
Sometimes you make eight sometimes ya hit dirt
Go on, pin another number to the back of my shirt.
G D C G D C
And I'll ride that pony pass, like a cowboy from the past
G D C G D C
Beyond their wildest dreams, like Texas in 1880
G D C G C Em C
Just like Texas in 1880.
Ah from Phoenix from Tulsa to the Astrodome,
New York City down to San Antone
These boys their riding for legendary fame
And our money's all gone but we ride just the same.
Our hearts will get broken our heads'll get busted
But we'll always believe the things that we trusted
There'll be those nights when Glory comes round
And we'll tip our hats and wave to the crowd (and then...)
Chorus: (same as before, except leave off last C before going into next
Someday when you're older someone'll see that buckle hanging
there on your belt, they'll ask you just how it felt (to ride....)
Fade out with progression: G C Em C
'Just like Texas'
