Even as she sleeps, she feels his restless turning As he struggles with an old dream all night long And when she awakes, she turns to reassure him She whispers to a shadow and finds him gone Way out in the barn a single lamp is burning She faintly hears a radio play a sad old cowboy song She watches as he takes, his old saddle from the wall A sudden chill runs through her in the cold of the not quite dawn [Chorus:] She's losing him, to the rodeo wind That blows through his soul, when the summer begins When the winter snow falls, he'll come back again But his heart always drifts, on the rodeo wind One sure way to lose him Is to try and make him stay He can't explain he don't even know himself But the force that drew her to him Has just gotta break away And the sound of the road and the rolling wheel Is the only thing that helps Now it all makes sense, those signs she's been seeing all along She feels like such a fool, a woman ought to know Just the other day, she saw him sittin' on the south fence Throwing stones at prairie dogs, and staring down the road
