The Sweetheart of the Rodeo
I hear the sound of sorrow in the wind Blowing down from every mile I've ever been Calling me out on some road that just won't end Where the sweetheart rides the rodeo again A thousand nights a thousand towns I took the bows But there is no compensation for me now Out along the highway where the west was won No matter how fast I ride or far I run Waiting for the sweetheart of the rodeo They're comin' down from Tonopah to Tupelo She'll come to town to ride the radio Like she's slidin' down the walls of Jericho There goes the sweetheart of the rodeo I stepped into the light you left behind I stood there where all the world could see me shine Oh I was on my way to you to make you mine But I took the longest road that I could find
