The Lyrics

When I was writing "Flag Is At Half Staff Again", this melody kept popping into my head.
It always seemed to me that the world moved by so fast
So I looked for a connection to the values of the past
While rats were born to run, I had to just slow down
I hope you'll come to see me when the rodeo's in town

I'll be back in the saddle again
Ride in the arena, herding cattle with my friends
With my boots in the stirrups again
All the fans who loved me once will greet me with a grin

This cowboy life's the best, it's the only life for me
Out here on the prairie, where a man can still be free
We go to bed at night, and wake with morning sun
And we do the chores together and we don't stop till we're done

I'll be back in the saddle again
If the fences should fall down, I'll stand them up again
I'll be back in the high chaparral
All the cows I'm watching now, I'll fence in the corral

And I'll grab the reins with one hand free
Lasso longhorns easily
A long-forgotten sight to see
Back in the saddle again

"Ride high,
ride high"
In the saddle again

(Cue the bagpipes, songs go better with bagpipes)

I'll be back on the bronco again
When the gate swings open, I'll ride him once again
Then I'll be back on my sore ass again
All the eyes that watched me fall, will smile and clap again

Then I'll drink and smoke--my groin was kneed
Light me up some Jimson weed
A pain reliever I will need
Back on my buttocks again

Tough life (back on my buttocks)
I'll be back
