Isa Rodeo

This song is by Slim Dusty and appears on the album Australia Is His Name (1985).

Roll up you Ozzie horsemen, a challenge has been thrown.
Don't let it go unnoticed, rough riding's in your bones.
So pass along the grapevine, let everybody know
You've still got time to enter in Mt Isa's rodeo.

They combed the north west stations, and brought the outlaws in.
They're lively and they'll make you earn the prizes that you win.
The brumbies from the northlands are yarded up to go.
And throw an open challenge at the Isa rodeo.

So roll up you Ozzie horsemen let everybody know
You've still got time to enter in Mt Isa's rodeo

The feature horse is spinifex you've heard of him I suppose.
He's reputation deadly as everybody knows.
So come on you bow legged stockmen.
This. challenge has to go, to anyone from anywhere at the Isa rodeo

The town is decked out gaily, and flags are flying high.
There's country music playing, beneath that friendly sky.
Roughriders roll in daily, and set the town aglow.
And the big parade's already called the Isa rodeo.

So roll up you Ozzie horsemen let everybody know.
You've still got time to enter in Mt Isa's rodeo.

Now when the dust as settled, and crowds have all gone home.
It's kind of sad to wander through, the rodeo grounds alone.
But we will all remember this year was a mighty show.
And the folks are coming back again to the Isa rodeo.
To the Isa rodeo.
