McBride and the Ride - "Trick Rider"


Trick Rider
by McBride and the Ride


Verse 1

I learned back when I was six

Teachin' my stick horse to do tricks

Puttin' on a backyard rodeo

If I'd make him buck, hoop and holler

Grandma'd laugh and give me a dollar

It a lesson that I learned, all on my own


Gotta be a trick rider, can't be a part-timer

If he's gonna make a dollar, one thing I know

You can be a fancy roper, have a wild desire

Oh the trick rider always steals the show

Verse 2

I figured out just how to please 'em

Make the hard ones look so easy

Out there is the spot light all alone

I always tried to do my best

I praticed hard and faked the rest

They always got their money's worth

Everywhere I'd go



Verse 3

I've been thrown off many times since then

I always got back on again

I found that if I tipped my hat for style

Folks out there would never know

They'd think it was part of the show

I could ride off in the sunset

Leave 'em with a smile


Yeah, a Trick rider always steals the show

Instrumental out.
