So You Want to Be a Cowboy

This song is by Chris LeDoux and appears on the album He Rides the Wild Horses (1981) and on the compilation Radio and Rodeo Hits (1990).

So you want to be a cowboy and you want to rodeo
Well, I don't see nothin' to hold you back just pack your stuff and go
You'll travel many highways and boy you're gonna see it all
You'll have yourself some good times but you're gonna take some falls

Now lay off the hard liquor and leave them pills alone
They'll only dull the senses and leave you weak and stoned
If you want to be a winner, son, you got to play it straight
Give it everything you got when they open up the gate

Well, there ain't no easy goin' on the rodeo trail
For every man that's made it, a hundred men have failed
But if you're mighty lucky and you got a lot of try
There's a big gold buckle waitin' at the end of the line

Now if you got a woman, son, you better know her well
'Cause it takes a special lady to follow you through hell
But if she'll stand beside you when you're down to your last dime
You've got yourself a treasure that few men ever find

Well, there ain't no easy goin' on the rodeo trail
For every man that's made it, a hundred men have failed
But if you're mighty lucky and you got a lot of try
There's a big gold buckle waitin' at the end of the line
There's a big gold buckle waitin' at the end of the line
