BC: So many memories go through my head everyday. | You are always in my head no matter what I do. | You are everywhere I go, I always see you. | Forever you will remain in my heart, as well as hearts of others.

3: Lookin back, on the memory of, the dance we shared 'neath the stars above. For a moment, all the world was right. How could I have known that you'd ever say good bye. And now, I'm glad I didn't know, the way it all would end, the way it all would go. Our lives, are better left to chance. I could have missed the pain, but I'd have to miss the dance. Holding you, I've held everything. For a moment, wasn't I the king. But if I'd only known, how the king would fall, hey whos to say you know I might have changed at all. And now, I'm glad I didnt' know, the way it all would end, the way it all would go. Our lives are better left to chance, I couldv'e missed the pain. Yes my life is better left to chance, I could've missed the pain, but I'd have to miss The Dance!
4: Good Ride Cowboy!
5: The Ragged Old Hat A Man on the street fcorner asked me one day, "Why do you wear that hat all dusty with hay?" I stood and answered, "Well sir, I'll tell you a story about this old hat. It goes where I go and that's that. This hats been to ranches in Montana, Where I moved cattle all year. It's been to El Paso, San Antone, and Fort Worth for the rodoes that I've cherished dear. The hold in the crown is from a bull ride long ago, and the dried blood on the brim was where I bashed heads with a bronc they called Navaho. There's a lot of memories in this old hat, Sons, a daughter, Hell, even a grandson at that. It's got memories of my dad as he gave this hat to me, And memories of my mother as she stichted on this patch you see. It cradles all of these memories between the curls of its brim. And that's why I wear it with pride and there's no changing that. But without these memories, its' just another, Ragged old hat.
6: Cowboy Up | Was his motto
7: If tears were a stairway, and memory a lane, I would walk right up to heaven and bring you home again!
8: Tommy He sits on the back of that big il' brahma bull He looks up at the grand stands, boy they sure are full. The gate man compliments him on his hew red shirt, Knowing that he's gonna git thrown into the dirt. Tommy prays that he will see the next day's ride. He nods his head, grips his rope, the gate swings to the outside. The bull throws his head and lunges out of the chute. But poor Tommycatches his old Justin boot. It pulls him under, his hands still in the rope. His mind goes blank, his body falls limp like an old ragged coat. But with grace and skill, the bull leaps to left, and to the right. The crowd stares in silence as they watch the bloody sight. Tommy's gone now, there's no doubt of that. But we will remember him no more and no less than the other cowboys, who died without a vest.

10: This time, this place, misused mistakes, too long, too late, Who was I to make you wait. Just one chance, just one breath, just in case theres just one left. 'Cause you know, you know, you know, That I love you, I loved you all along, I miss you, been far away for far too long. I keep dreaming, you'll be with me and you'll never go. Stop breathing if I don't see you anymore. On my knees, I'll ask, one chance for one last dance. 'Cause with you, I'll witthstand all of hell just to hold your hand. I'd give it all, I'd give for us, I'd give anything but I won't give up. Cause you know, you know, you know, that I love you, I loved you all along. I miss you, been far away for far too long. I keep dreaming, you'll be with me and you'll never go. Stop breathing if I don't see you anymore. I wanted, I wanted you to stay. Cause I needed, I need to hear you say, that I love you, I loved you all along. And I forgive you, for being away for far too long. So keep breathing, cause I'm not leaving you anymore. Believe it, hold onto me and never let go. Keep breathing, hold onto me and never let go. Keep breathing, hold onto me and never let go! Far Aaway by Nickleback

21: Theres a 100 years of history, and a 100 before that. All gathered in the thinking, going on beneath his hat. The cold flame burns within him, till his skins cold as ice. And the dues paid to get here are worth every sacrafice. All the miles spent sleepy driving, all the money down the drain. All the "If I's" and "Nearly's" All the bandages and pain. All the females left dryin, all the fever and the fight. are just a small down payment on the ride he makes tonight. Its guts and lvoe and glory, one mortals chance at fame. His legacy was rodeo, and Cowboy was his name.
