Bucked Off

Album: Yet to be titled (2018)
  • 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 about 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 jug
    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
