One of the Strait man's great rodeo tunes... Willie's Place, Sirius Ch. 64: "He said, I'm sorry it's come down to this, there's so much about you that I'm gonna miss...but it's all right, baby, if I hurry I can still make Cheyenne..."
I've spoken before of George Strait and his great rodeo tunes. I remember after the first few times I heard this song, I thought it could have been the beginning of the story of the narrator of "Amarillo By Morning," with "The Cowboy Rides Away" being the second installment of the story. If the songs hadn't been released in the exact reverse order they should have been that would have made more sense, but, there you have it. ;-)
