Living Out A Country Song

Living Out A Country Song

First stop was a rodeo down in San Antone; I got up on a bull named Red but I didn’t stay on for long; they said it was a second, seemed like eternity, but I ain’t no quitter gonna ride that critter before I leave.
CHORUS: Hey mister bucking bull be good to me tonight. I ain’t in town but a day or two and I need you to treat me right. I’m living for today and like I say I won’t be here for long. What it’s all about-I’m living out - -a country song.
Next stop was a gambling joint out in Reno town; I raised I called I matched the pot and I even doubled down; well I lost it all then I won it back, the dealer’s my new best friend, chalk it all up to beginner’s luck I’m in the chips again.
CHORUS: Hey mister dealer man be good to me tonight. I ain’t in town but a day or two and I need you to treat me right. I’m living for today and like I say I won’t be here for long. What it’s all about-I’m living out- -a country song.
BREAK: All my life I’ve wanted to be just like the guys on C M T. Rodeo, gambling, painting the town, finding true love and settling down.
Next stop was a honky tonk down in Santa Fe; a dancing senorita girl was startin’ to look my way; I ordered me a Joseʹ Cuervo, sat down on the stool, one more thing a-shakin is all it would have taken and I’d ‘ve been playing the fool.
CHORUS: Hey mister bartender be good to me tonight. I ain’t in town but a day or two and I need you to treat me right. I’m living for today and like I say I won’t be here for long. What it’s all about-I’m living out- -a country song.
BREAK: All my life I’ve wanted to be just like the guys on C M T. Rodeo, gambling, painting the town, finding true love and settling down (pause)
Last stop was a double-wide outside of Abilene; there’s a girl lives there with long brown hair pretty as you’ve ever seen; I pulled up in the driveway, she sorta cocked her head, then she jumped right down threw her arms around me and this is what she said.
CHORUS: Hey mister cowboy man be good to me tonight. You make it tough but I’m still in love you gotta learn to treat me right. Doing all I can to stand by my man when he’s right and when he’s wrong. What it’s all about - I’m living out - - a country song. What it’s all about - we’re both living out - - a country song.
