shotgun rider lyrics – tim mcgraw

horses are running wide open i just gotta ride
to those honky-tonk bars that stay open way past closing time
songs about free thinkin’ and drinking sure light my fire
that flame leaves a scar on my heart like an old branding iron

[chorus]
she said rodeo man where are you going
don’t you know that the life of a cowboy is no good alone
if you tear down that fence of rusty barbed wire
then i’ll lay down beside you and be your shotgun rider

yesterday’s nothing but dust i brush off my boots
while i’m wearing out roads don’t you know that i’m sure missing you
if i leave you’ll be wondering when i’ll be back again
between texas and ranchers and old friends where do you fit in

[chorus]

[chorus]

woman come lay down beside me and be my shotgun rider
