His eyes are cold and restless And His wounds have almost healed
And she'd give half of Texas Just to change the way he feels 'Cause she knows his love's in Tulsa And she knows he's gonna go
But it ain't no woman flesh and blood It's that damned old rodeo 
Well  it's bulls and blood It's dust and mud
It's the roar of a Sunday crowd
It's the white in his knuckles The gold in his buckle He'll win the next go 'round
It's boots and chaps It's cowboy hats
It's spurs and latigo It's the ropes and the reins And the joy and the pain
And they call the thing rodeo

She does her best to hold him
When his love comes to call
But his need for it controls him
And her back's against the wall
And it's "So long girl, I'll see you."
When it's time for him to go
You know the woman wants her cowboy Like he wants his rodeo 
Well, it's bulls and blood It's dust and mud
It's the roar of a Sunday crowd
It's the white in the knuckles The gold in the buckle He'll win the next go 'round
It's boots and chaps It's cowboy hats
It's spurs and latigo It's the ropes and the reins And the joy and the pain
And they call the thing rodeo

It'll drive a cowboy crazy
It'll drive the man insane And he'll sell off everything he owns
Just to pay to play her game
And a broken home and some broken bones
Is all he'll have to show
For all the years that he spent chasin'
This dream they call rodeo 
Well, it's bulls and blood It's dust and mud
It's the roar of a Sunday crowd
It's the white in them knuckles The gold in the buckle He'll win the next go 'round
It's boots and chaps It's cowboy hats
It's spurs and latigo It's the ropes and the reins And the joy and the pain
And they call the thing rodeo
It's the broncs and the blood It's the steers and the mud
And they call the thing rodeo
