"Little Red Rodeo" as written by Charlie Black, Rory Michael Bourke and Phil Vassar....
The note said, you've had time to think about it
Looks like to me you're feelin' kinda crowded
You're not lookin' for anything permanent here
So my Rodeo's packed and in goodbye gear

So I shot down to the Longhorn Diner
Her sister works there and she'd know where to find her
She said, you didn't hear it from me
All I'll say is mama's got that place out in Monterrey

Oh, how fast can I go, gotta catch that little red Rodeo
She drove off with my heart, I've gotta let her know
I need the girl in that little red Rodeo
Texas plates, candy apple red Rodeo

Two towns back I showed your photograph
And the gas station man just started to laugh
She said I might see you in this bucket of rust
And said good luck boy, just follow that cloud of dust

Oh, how fast can I go, gotta catch that little red Rodeo
She drove off with my heart, I've gotta let her know
I need the girl in that little red Rodeo
Texas plates, candy apple red Rodeo

Maybe I was straddling the fence just like she said
It took her leaving to get it through my head

She's the one and only, it's over, that's it
I'm committed, I'm in love and I'm desperate
She's a good ways gone but I'm closin' the gap
If I have to I'll chase her clear across the map

Oh, how fast can I go, gotta catch that little red Rodeo
She drove off with my heart, I've gotta let her know
I need the girl in that little red Rodeo
Texas plates, candy apple red Rodeo

    General CommentAwww come on, no one wants to comment on how freaking great this song is?

    I just love singing this while driving in my car, the beat is soo infectious. I love all music, including country, which was my first love. And this song was one of my favs when I was a little girl.

    Collin Raye is a country legend, even if he was never saw for it.

    I love this song.

    General CommentI was raised on country and classic rock, and country is still one of my guilty pleasures to this day.

    That said... this song trumps pretty much all other country songs.

    General CommentGreat song. The kind of song that when you have recently met a girl you're interested in, and this comes on the radio, you're almost tempted to hurry on over to this girl and ask her out, even if she's not hurrying away.
