I Won My Pile of Woes

Stuart Watkins

I won my pile of woes riding in rodeos

county, state, even national rodeos

broke my nose and bent my spurs

riding in rodeos

but I’m a cowboy can’t you see

got the rodeo blood in me

roping a steer ain’t nothing I fear

bull riding is another thing

thought I was cowboy enough

dislocated shoulder twice

broke my ribs and nose twice

stayed on one long enough

championship silver belt buckle

showed everyone I was tough

twisting bucking bulls near broke my will

ain’t got my fill

silver buckle on my belt

entry fee paid, one more rodeo made

I won my pile of woes

still hear the call of rodeos.
