Cowboy and Clown
by Craig Morgan



As he climbed in the shoot
The crowd held it's breath
He was seconds from glory
Or moments from death.
They knew with this bull
It could go either way
He said "Let her go boys and pray."

He hung on for eight
But he couldn't get loose
That's when a clown they call Crazy
Came to his rescue
When the dust finally settled
They both walked away
They bacame best of friends that day.

The cowboy and clown
Close as two brothers
Chips up or down
They can count on each other
Buckles and Beers
Winning and Losing
Laughter and Tears
Broken hearts and Bruises
They live for the next final round
The cowboy and clown

From Denver to Dallas
To the Calvary Stampede
They took all those towns
And a few in between
But it ended one night
In a west Texas town
The bulls either got faster
Or old Crazy slowed down.

Five hundered pick ups
Lights on, Drivin' slow
A tent on the hill
At the end of the road
When the last bible closed
One cowboy stayed
He said "Let her go boys" and prayed.

The cowboy and clown
Close as two brothers
Chips up or down
They could count on each other
Buckles and beers
Winnin' and Losin'
Laughter and Tears
Broken Hearts and Bruises
They live for the next final round
The Cowboy and Clown.
