The dust has settled on another rodeo

But there's soon another one on the go

He packs his spurs his vest and his chaps

And his well worn cowboy hat


He travels from dawn to dusk

Sometimes getting lost and in a rut


He arrives at the grounds

The entry tent is found

The bulls are drawn

The cowboy's name is called out 

He's focusing on that 8 seconds, Without a doubt


The bulls in the chute

He's got  spurs on  dusty boots

They pull his rope tight

And he makes sure He's sitting rite


He calls "Ok Boys" 

The crowd is electric

Without a doubt 


The bull bucks and spins

The cowboy is focused on a win

He hangs on tight

They both put up a fair fight 


He looses his grip

And begins to slip

And it's over just 7 seconds out

He may not have made it, but his still alive

But the cowboy knows one thing

He's gratefull for the chance of the 8 second ride
