Bucked Off

Lyricist:     Composer:

It's been a great ride
But here we sit tonight
The look in her eyes
Says something’s wrong
This ain't a wild bull
It's just a bar stool
But it’s all I can do
To just hang on

And George Strait's on the jukebox in the corner
Singing 'bout cowboys riding away

But this ain't my first rodeo
Someone's gonna get hurt
Whenever someone says "We need to talk"
It feels like there's a number
Pinned on to the back of my shirt
'Cause this is where the cowboy gets bucked off
Yeah, this is where the cowboy gets bucked off

You can go to Houston
Vegas or San Antone
And watch a bull rider
Hit the dirt
Or head down to this bar
For a little cover charge
You can watch me
Get thrown by her

George Strait's on the jukebox again
Says if I leave now I can still make Cheyenne

But this ain’t my first rodeo
Someone’s gonna get hurt
So hey, bartender, give me one more shot
It feels like there's a number
Pinned on to the back of my shirt
’Cause this is where the cowboy gets bucked off
Yeah, this is where the cowboy gets bucked off

I think about those nights in Marina Del Rey
As this beautiful cowgirl slips away
But the pain only lasts so long
And when you get bucked off you get back on

It feels like there's a number
Pinned on to the back of my shirt
'Cause this is where the cowboy gets bucked off
Yeah, this is where the cowboy gets bucked off
