OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*Dixie was a lady and a rodeo queen
Billy was her lover and you know what I mean

Allemande corner, come home a dosado
Allemande corner, gonna weave her and go
Well, I'm a wild bull rider and I love my rodeo
Hey you dosado then promenade and go
My pappy was a pistol, I'm a song of a gun
I ride wild bulls just to have some fun
The higher they get is a little too low for me


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Brought a bad bull to the big rodeo
Said he killed a man out in New Mexico


*Well Bill rode that killer out of New Mexico
He rode him across the Rockies through the rain and the snow


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

Four ladies chain 3/4 round you go
Heads promenade half around you know
Down the middle, curlique then walk & dodge
Swing thru two by two, boys run right
Tag the line, girls turn back then curlique
Boys run to the right, promenade her and do
My pappy was a pistol, I'm a song of a gun
I ride wild bulls just to have some fun
The higher they get is a little too low for me

Swing her
Oloa ha oloa ha oloa ha oloa ha

Wild Bull Rider
 
 

Dixie was a lady and a Rodeo Queen
Billy was her lover, ah you know what I mean
Billy rode the bulls in the big rodeo
Dixie loved her man and she told him so
Dixie loved her man, she told him so

They brought a bad bull to the big rodeo
Said he killed a man out in New Mexico
Dixie said Billy, please don't go
Don't ride that killer in the rodeo
You're the only man I love, I need you so

Billy he looked at Dixie, looked her right in the eyes
Said I'm a wild bull rider and I love my rodeo
I'd ride that bull to hell and back
For the money and the show

Yeah, my pappy was a pistol, I'm a son of a gun
I ride wild bulls just to have some fun
And the higher they get is a little too low for me
I said the higher they get is a little too low for me

Billy rode that killer out of New Mexico
He rode him 'cross the Rockies through the rain and the snow
He rode 'cross the desert to the shining sea
He rode 'cross the water out to Hawaii
He rode 'cross the water out to Hawaii
Aloha ha, Aloha hey, Aloha ha, Aloha hey.

Billy rode that bull around the world and then
He rode him out to Jupiter and back again
He picked up, Dixie away they did fly
Like a shootin' star sailing through the sky
Like a shootin' star sailing through the sky

And I could hear Billy say
He said I'd rather be a lover than a fighter of wars
Be from Oklahoma than the nebulous stars
Spent a lot of time in some honky tonk bars
From Memphis to the China Sea
Yeah, from Memphis to the China Sea

And I'm a wild bull rider and I love my rodeo
I'd ride that bull to hell and back
For the money and the show

Yeah, my pappy was a pistol, I'm a son of a gun
I ride wild bulls just to have some fun
And the higher they get is a little too low for me
Yeah the higher they get is a little too low for me

What did he say?
I'm a wild bull rider and I love my rodeo
I'd ride that bull to hell and back
For the money and the show

Yeah, my pappy was a pistol, I'm a son of a gun
I ride wild bulls just to have some fun
And the higher they get is a little too low for me
Yeah the higher they get is a little too low for me

Lyrics by Hoyt Axton.
