Here Are Garth Brooks + Ronnie Dunn’s ‘Rodeo Man’ Lyrics
Two country music legends have teamed up for a new foot-stompin' rodeo jam, and Garth Brooks and Ronnie Dunn's "Rodeo Man" lyrics are as country as they are.
The track — co-written by Dunn and Phil O'Donnell — is an ode to those who live for the thrill of an eight-second ride.
Both singers trade lines throughout the song, telling the story of a man chasing the coveted buckle. It may not be a glamorous life, and it comes with big risks, but the narrator of the story can't help but be hooked on rodeo.
Brooks will include "Rodeo Man" on his upcoming Time Traveler album. The project arrives Nov. 7 as a part of his seven-disc box set that will be available exclusively through Bass Pro Shops, for now.
Garth Brooks and Ronnie Dunn's "Rodeo Man" Lyrics:
All broke down and banged up, been laid up a couple weeks / Had my share of bad luck, hard falls and drawin' deep / I'll be back in no time, ladies, I gotta make Fort Worth / One buckle shy of Vegas or pawn shop hocking these spurs
Pull up them boots, ease me down in that shoot / Tie me on tight, bet it all on one good ride / Get me off this thing alive, get me eight Lord that's the plan / It's just the day in the life of a rodeo man
Cold water truck stop showers, been rode hard and put up wet / Four more uphill hours to show 'em that I ain't dead yet
Hooked hard on the habit, livin' for one good ride / Like a fox on the tail of a rabbit, I'm chasin' that buckaroo life
It's just the day in the life of a rodeo man
