From the recording Missing You : MP3
A little trip back into the time I lived in San Antonio, Texas.
Sweetheart of the Rodeo Arthur Sherry C 2005
She’s the sweetheart of the Rodeo,
The clown’s favorite girl.
She knows how to make him laugh until he cries.
She’s shared all his good times,
Learned to whisper all the best lines,
To make him feel he’s on top of the world.
It’s a hard life they’re living,
Always moving from town to town,
But they have to earn some money,
So, they chase the Rodeo down.
She’s a Sweetheart of a lady,
He’s a gentleman in disguise,
Sharing all the bad and best times, of their lives.
When they’re growing older,
To her questions he’ll reply,
I’m glad I had you, to share my life.
They’ve cared enough, to share enough of
All they’ve ever learned,
To keep their love growing strong,
when they both have gotten burned.
And the sweetheart of the Rodeo, takes the clown by the hand,
to share life and eternity, with the love of her man.
The Rodeo clowns got a rugged face,
Rope burns on his hands,
A pickup truck and a double wide
Are all he has for lands.
But when another dusty cowboy
Asks to take her to the dance
She says no, but thanks a million,
The clown’s my only romance.
