Bucky the Bull

There was a bull named Bucky 
It seemed he ran out of lucky 
You see Bucky 
Didn't wanna buck

That was a problem you see 
Cause he was on his way to Tallahassee 
The main attraction 
At the tri-county rodeo

He dazzeled 'em from Dallas to Dakota 
Into the air he’d throw ya 
And if you’d stayed on his back 
You'd win the gold

He had quite a reputation 
A tornado of devastation 
But he was mellowing now 
As he was growing old

Still you’d hear ‘em say...

Step right in, step right up 
Come see Bucky the bucking bull buck 
He's a mean hombre, with big scary horns 
Many mamas curse the day he was born 
Come on in and get your ticket here 
Your safe in the stands, you got nothing to fear 
Watch the cowboys test their luck 
See if they got the right stuff 
Watch Bucky the bucking bull buck

He arrived at the rodeo around ten 
He had a star trailer to lay in 
And around him he saw the other bulls 
Warming up

They loaded him into the chute 
His rope not to tight, not too loose 
And a rookie named Garret 
Climbed upon his back

It became the same old routine 
He had seen it all 
There was no thrill it seemed 
The dream had died long ago

But still you’d hear ‘em say

Step right in, step right up 
Come see Bucky the bucking bull buck 
He's a mean hombre, with big scary horns 
Many mamas curse the day he was born 
Come on in and get your ticket here 
Your safe in the stands, you got nothing to fear 
Watch the cowboys test their luck 
See if they got the right stuff 
Watch Bucky the bucking bull buck

The cowboy nodded his head and said “Let ‘er rip!” 
The chute gate opened and they moved out quick 
But Bucky hardly bucked and the cowboy cursed 
"Come on now, won't give me your worst!"

There was such passion in the young man’s voice 
Bucky came alive, well he had no choice 
He said "ok cowboy, buckle in 
Were gonna dance 
Were gonna dance 
Hang on to your pants!"

And now you hear ‘em say

Step right in, step right up 
Come see Bucky the bucking bull buck 
He's a mean hombre, with big scary horns 
Many mamas curse the day he was born 
Come on in and get your ticket here 
Your safe in the stands, you got nothing to fear 
Watch the cowboys test their luck 
See if they got the right stuff 
Watch Bucky the bucking bull buck
