​Ro-Deo-Deo Cowboy

This song is by Jerry Jeff Walker and appears on the album A Man Must Carry On, Volume One (1977).

Yeah, I work all week just to make a draw,
Sometimes I don't ride 'em at all.
But I'm hooked in and I got to ride that train.
When I get down in that chute,
I can't keep from thinkin' about all that loot,
I'm a ro-do-o de-o de-o cowboy
Bordering on the insane.

That's why I drink a cheeseburger, eat a six-pack
Take a Darvon to kill the pain.
Pay thirty-two fifty just to take a fall,
I live through it to tell you 'bout it all.
I'm a ro-de-o de-o de-o de cowboy
Bordering on the insane.

Now, relax and take a deep breath or two
It's a one time shot and then you're through
Hang on, boy, and someday you'll have fame.
When they open up that gate
The bull takes off like a runaway freight
And you're a ro-de-o de-o de-o de cowboy
Bordering on the insane.

That's why I eat a cheeseburger, drink a six-pack
Take a Darvon to kill the pain
Pay thirty-two fifty just to take a fall
I live through it just to talk about it all
I'm a ro-de-o de-o de-o de cowboy
Bordering on the insane.

The cobwebs sure are thick, what's goin' on?
I feel like all my circuits are blown.
I can't remember my number or name.
Gimme a beer or two and I'll feel fine,
'Least it's worked ev'ry other time
'Cause I'm a ro-de-o de-o de-o de cowboy
Bordering on the insane.
