Lyrics

THE RODEO DON’T LOVE ME LIKE YOU DO
KERRY PATRICK CLARK

Daddy was a cowboy who lived the rodeo He said that he met mamma when she was seventeen years old
The daughter of a rancher that stole his heart away
He promised to be faithful forever and a day

But she saw him in the saddle she knew that that's where he belonged
She knew that he'd be leaving when the rodeo moved on
So she wrote one last love letter and with tears in her eyes
Softy kissed him on the cheek but he did not say goodbye ..... he said

CHORUS
The rodeo won't love me like you will
The rodeo won't warm the cold winter's chill
A cowboy's love is faithful, forever and true
The Rodeo Don't Love Me Like You Do

So they married in the winter in a softly falling snow
Mamma took her handsome cowboy back to his new home
Daddy carried mamma through the doors like lovers do
He said I could learn to love this land only half as much as you

Daddy planted in the springtime but in the fall when harvest came
Mamma found him in the stable waiting out the rain
Talking to his pony how he missed the rodeo
I guess she saw it coming but before she let him go ..... she said
CHORUS
The rodeo won't love me like you will
The rodeo won't warm the cold winter's chill
A cowboy's love is faithful, forever and true
The Rodeo Don't Love Me Like You Do

BRIDGE
Off into the sunset daddy rode away Mamma said she cried and cried for days Scarcely one week later when she was close to losing hope Saddled on his pony daddy up and rode ..... he said

CHORUS
The rodeo won't love you like I will
The rodeo won't warm the cold winter's chill
A cowboy's love is forever, faithful and true
The Rodeo Don't Love You Like I Do
