Rodeo Radio – Lyrics

I was driving ‘round the country on my way to somewhere far

Scanning through the stations coming to me in my car

The local transmissions played the same ten songs

So I turned on the satellite to see what else was on

One was playing country and one was playing 80’s

One was playing Buffet and another something crazy

4 hundred channels, but I still was missing something

So I turned off the stereo, a listening to nothing

A few miles later things were in my head

A great station mashup of what I’d liked from them… yeah, on that FM.

Some good hellbilly with a dance floor beat

Had me clapping my hands and stomping my feet

Figured if I’m gonna hear what I want to hear

Better put something together, now listen here…

We’ll start with a bit of that country home

Add a little synth and a thick bass drum

Kick a little sand in the salty air

Bring it all together with with a rockin’ flair

It’s rodeo radio, coming from me to you

Yeah, it’s rodeo radio coming from me to you

Finally made it home, it was the middle of the night

Eyes wide open as the daylight was in sight

Fired up my laptop and dug through some songs

Thought I’d make a little mix of what I heard was going on

Played it for some friends and they all sang along

We danced and had a party all the way into the dawn

The party kept on going as the months went on

And the Summer came and went like the… well…

Making tapes was fun but it had its run

So I got myself on the air

Then the airwaves died, no one really cried

As the loaded their own software

I started writing songs, should’ve all along

Don’t know why it took so damned long

Now, it’s rodeo radio coming through me to you

Yeah, I start with a bit of that country home

Add a little synth and a thick bass drum

Kick a little sand in the salty air

Bring it all together with with a rockin’ flair

It’s rodeo radio, coming through me to you

Yeah, it’s rodeo radio coming through me to you

I had a stack of songs, but there was nothing going on

So, I found a like mind and we started up the band

Living our lives like the words of our songs

Playing all the time and bringing something different on

Yeah we start with a bit of that country home

Add a little synth and a thick bass drum

Kick a little sand in the salty air

Bring it all together with with a rockin’ flair

It’s rodeo radio, coming through me to you

Rodeo radio coming through me to you
