Was sitting top that mean ‘ol bronc waiting on the chute;
Saw her in grandstand, thought, Oh Lordy, she was cute,
So took a chance, tipped my hat, winked at her and smiled;
Whispered to beast ‘neath me, let’s make this ride worthwhile.

My spurs dug in ‘ bout same time her smile dug into heart,
Right then and there, knew her and I would never be apart.
Hung to brute for eight seconds, would hang with her for life;
That little lady in the stands would someday be my wife.

Just a wandering rodeo cowboy not wanting any knots
In lariat of freedom, but this cowpoke was done caught,
Tangled within naive smile of blonde, blue-eyed cowgirl
Who someday soon would promise me a lifelong whirl.


She offered me a first place trophy peck upon the cheek;
I swore to heavens, wouldn’t wash that cheek for weeks.
Then asked her out for dinner, she blushed and answered ‘yes’…
Good golly, Miss Molly, was no cowgirl in that red dress.

Soon I wrapped her finger in band of 14-karat gold.
Together, this fine, young filly and me would grow old.
Through battered, bruised and broken, she stood right by my side;
And over years, win or lose, she smiled at me with pride.

Just a wandering rodeo cowboy not wanting any knots
In lariat of freedom, but this cowpoke was done caught,
Tangled within naive smile of blonde, blue-eyed cowgirl
Who someday soon would promise me a lifelong whirl.


Retired now, but I still ride wild rocking chair on porch
Strumming guitar, singing love songs to my life-long torch.
Thankful to the One above who sent lady my way,
Cause first day I saw her, knew my heart would never stray.

So, you young cowboys out there, heed this old man’s advice
Waiting for chute to open, glance at them grandstands twice.
Might be a little blonde, blue-eyed cowgirl sent just for you
To saddle heart forever with unbridled love, so true.

Just a wandering rodeo cowboy not wanting any knots
In lariat of freedom, but this cowpoke was done caught,
Tangled within naive smile of blonde, blue-eyed cowgirl
Who promised and dealt me a lifelong whirl…lifelong whirl.
