The bronc buster’s been thrown
More times than you can count.
Often times they become
Fixtures in the bunkhouse,
For all their broken bones
Don’t permit them out.
Don’t know a bronc buster
Who’ll quit, even if he’s in pain
Most bronc busters have a score
To settle with the animal
That sent them flying.
A bronc buster won’t admit defeat
Even if he’s thrown,
From the same animal a dozen times.
The bronc buster has a motto,
No bronc buster can’t be thrown,
And no horse can’t be rode.
A bronc buster loves the cheers
That he hears a top the horse
He’s breaking, ride ’em cowboy
Nothing’s more rewarding
Than a pat on the back
And a good job cowboy.
That’s what gives the bronc buster
His thunder, his pride for what he is.
