Too Young

I tell you, I have the bug like I never quit. I, for the last six years have not even gone to watch because I know how it affects me. I have abstained from the sport for so damn long I thought I was over it...guess not. Part of what brings me back is my inability to listen to a single music station or genre for that matter. I heard a song the other day and it reminded me of how I used to feel...and believe me it is no lie. Other than the long term effects, I don't live with the day to day soreness that comes from tying myself to 2000 pounds of muscle that is totally pissed or even a lightning quick horse, only 1200 lbs, while trying to move my feet fast enough to catch the judges' eyes yet maintain some sync with the horse...

Here is the song that reminded me of how addicted I was, or is that am, and how that title sums up the day to day feelings of being--

Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old)

This ol' highway's getting longer
Seems there ain't no end in sight
To sleep would be best, but I just can't afford to rest
I've got to ride in Denver tomorrow night

I called the house but no one answered
For the last two weeks no one's been home
I guess she's through with me, to tell the truth I just can't see
What's kept the woman holding on this long

And the white line's getting longer and the saddle's getting cold
I'm much too young to feel this damn old
All my cards are on the table with no ace left in the hole
I'm much too young to feel this damn old

The competition's getting younger
Tougher broncs, you know I can't recall
The worn out tape of Chris LeDoux, lonely women and bad booze
Seem to be the only friends I've left at all

And the white line's getting longer and the saddle's getting cold
I'm much too young to feel this damn old
All my cards are on the table with no ace left in the hole
I'm much too young to feel this damn old

Lord, I'm much too young to feel this damn old

Thanks to Garth Brooks for getting my "panties in a bunch" over this damn rodeo thing.
