The Lyrics

This is a true story!
You were visiting in Idaho,
Your friends, they had a ranch,
They asked if you would help them,
So you just jumped at the chance,
You chased the calves into a chute,
And then their mothers, too,
You did whatever it was,
That those fine folks asked you to do.
Are you roundin' up the steers,
Having a good time,
Did your friends bust out in cheers,
When your cowboy hat went flyin'!
( Repeat chorus )
They had a big cow catcher,
It was halfway through the chute,
It held them 'til the men shaved off,
Some hair from their caboose,
The 'lectric brand, it seared their flesh,
And must have really hurt,
They let them go, so they could run,
And bray out in the dirt.
( Chorus ) (Repeat )
You were stuck before a charging bull,
You thought that you were dead,
So you held up your big wooden pole,
And broke it on his head,
He hit you back, you flew straight up,
And then you fell straight down,
You were surprised to realize,
You're still both safe & sound.
( Chorus ) ( Repeat) I do these parodies at karaoke night. I put adult humor & partials on the other website.
