Moe Bandy – Rodeo Romeo Lyrics

He’ll dust off his hat, clean out his old pick-up truck
He’s goin’ playin’ when he should be prayin’ for luck
For tomorrow he’s ridin’ the meanest bull you’ll ever seen
But tonight he’ll forget all about it, he’s headin’ for some cowgirl’s dream

He’s a rodeo Romeo, cowgirls and bulls are his life
He loves what he does and he does what he loves every night

He’ll hit the dancehalls, flashin’ the girls his best smile
He’s burnin’ both ends of the candle, rodeo Romeo style

He don’t even care that while he’s out lovin’ all night
The bulls will be savin’ their strength for that eight second ride
The white lace and whiskey, they’ll have him feelin’ half dead
And even though odds are against him, he’ll come out a winner instead

He’s a rodeo Romeo, cowgirls and bulls are his life
He loves what he does and he does what he loves every night

He’ll hit the dancehalls, flashin’ the girls his best smile
He’s burnin’ both ends of the candle, rodeo Romeo style
