This Ain’t My First Rodeo

Verse:
You’re a wild filly on an open plain
A herd of horses stampeding my brain
I’ll try tonight to capture that fight
Throw a rope with you in sight
A free spirit that can’t be tamed
Hold on tight but give her some rein
Chorus:
This ain’t my first rodeo
This go round
I’m glory bound
It’s cut and dried
We’ll make this ride
No turning back
We’re right on track
Saddle up and go go go
This ain’t my first rodeo
Verse:
You’re a bull rope that’s wound too tight
A wild charger on a stormy night
Eyes and brain just a little insane
Sometimes you’re a feel good pain
A sizzling blast of electric light
It could be wrong but I know it’s right
Repeat Chorus:
This ain’t my first rodeo
This go round
I’m glory bound
It’s cut and dried
We’ll make this ride
No turning back
We’re right on track
Saddle up and go go go
This ain’t my first rodeo
Tag:
Proud, defiant in a driving rain
Standing on a canyon’s ledge
One step from playing it safe
One step from over the edge
Repeat Chorus:
This ain’t my first rodeo
This go round
I’m glory bound
It’s cut and dried
We’ll make this ride
No turning back
We’re right on track
Saddle up and go go go
This ain’t my first rodeo

Just some thoughts…..

A wild wind-devil on an open plain
A painted philly dancing in my brain
Daring me to come on and fight
Kickin’ up dust in the noon daylight
Local boys say you can’t be tamed
But we’ll see about that tonight

Chorus:
No, this ain’t my first rodeo
This go round, I’m glory bound
Honey, let’s give them a show
You tease and prance, you love to dance
You wink and whisper about romance
But angel, now you’re flirting with the devil who knows…...
This ain’t my first rodeo

Verse:
Oh, that buck and roll will take its toll
And hard to get never gets old
It’s plain to see, desire in your eyes
And that country style is never shy
So pace yourself, it’s the cowboy way
Gonna’ be a long hard ride…

Tag:
Proud, strong, sultry, demure
Dancing at a canyon’s ledge
One step from playing it safe
One step from over the edge

I used ‘prance’ in a lyric once, referring to children who ‘prance and frolic all day’. A singer criticized me, saying prancing was something only horses do. The metaphor works here, though…
