Young Cowboy from the Rodeo

Nov 23 2016

Back in Michigan, around 10 yrs ago, my CEO shared a song his mother wrote in 1960s..about 10 yrs later I revisited the song and tried my hand at it…

The song was written and composed by Norma Fitzpatrick in 1960s. This is my rendition of it

Lyrics:
Was a young cowboy from Butte Montana
With a stetson hat and a red bandana
With a yippe yayi ye and a yippie yayi yo
Came to town for the rodeo

Sun was hot and the stands were full
And he drew the number of the red eyed bull
Took a fall for the rodeo He gave his all for the rodeo

Buried him out on the lone prairie
And over the hill where the land was free
When the preacher stood to have his say
The cowboy’s spirit slipped away

He slipped away on the iron horse rolling thru the sky
was a hard place to live, good place to die
You heard this story yesterday, a 100 yrs ago
When the cowboys come from miles around
To ride in the rodeo

There’s a young cowboy from Butte Montana
With a stetson hat and a red bandana
He’s standing there on the golden shore
I wonder who he’s waiting for

With a yippe yayi ye and a yippie yayi yo
Came to town for the rodeo…
