Texas In 1880

Album: The Essential Foster & Lloyd (2001)
  • I can hear the wind whisper my name
    Tellin' me it's time to head out again
    My horses are trailered and the lights are shut down
    And I'm long overdue for headin' outta town

    Got a fever that they call rodeo
    Just enough winnin' to make the next show
    Sometimes you make eight, sometimes you hit dirt
    Go on, pin another number to the back of my shirt

    And I'll ride that pony fast
    Like a cowboy from the past
    Be young and wild free
    Like Texas in 1880
    Just like Texas in 1880

    Ah, from Phoenix to Tulsa to the Astro Dome
    New York City down to San Antone
    There's boys that are ridin' for legendary fame
    And our money's all gone but we ride just the same

    Our hearts got broken, and our heads get busted
    But we'll always believe the things that we trust
    There'll be those nights when glory comes 'round
    And we'll tip our hats and wave to the crowd

    And I'll ride that pony fast
    Like a cowboy from the past
    Be young and wild free
    Like Texas in 1880
    Just like Texas in 1880

    Someday, when you're older
    Someone see
    That buckle hangin' there on your belt
    Ask you just how it felt!

    And I'll ride that pony fast
    Like a cowboy from the past
    Be young and wild free
    Like Texas in 1880
    Just like Texas in 1880

    Just like Texas
    Just like Texas Writer/s: RADNEY M. FOSTER
