Texas in 1880
By Foster & Lloyd
And by Pat Green and Radney Foster

Well I can hear the wind whisper my name
Telling me it's time to head out again
My horses are trailered and the lights are shut down
And I'm long overdue from heading outta town
Got a fever that they call rodeo
Just enough winnings to make the next show
Sometimes you make eight sometimes you hit dirt
          C                         D
Go on and pin another number to the back of my shirt

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

Ah, from Phoenix to Tulsa to the Astrodome
New York City down to San Antone
These boys are riding for legendary fame
And our money's all gone but we ride just the same
Our hearts will get broken and our heads'll get busted
We'll always believe the things that we trusted
There'll be those nights when glory comes round
And we'll tip our hats and wave to the crowd and then


Someday when you're older someone'll see
That buckle hanging there on your belt
Ask you just how it felt... to ride

I haven't listened to the original cut in a while, but if I'm not mistaken, on the recording with Pat Green, the lyrics "Beyond their wildest dreams" should read "Be young and wild and free."
