"Down on Rodeo" as written by and Lindsey Buckingham....
After the music ended there was
Nowhere to go but down
Faces of glass all hung in the past they
Only come here to drown
They were long gone far gone nowhere
Else to go
Long gone far gone down on Rodeo

We never took quite enough chances we
Never had quite enough time
I did about a thousand dances but
Nothing would change your mind
You were long gone far gone putting on
Your show
Long gone far gone down Rodeo

I'm going where nobody's gone before
Ain't never coming back
Going where nobody's gone before ain't
Never coming back

That's just the way it goes sometimes
The price is a little too much
Two little children on reveille hill we
Looked but we couldn't touch
We were long gone far gone looking in
The window
Long gone far gone down on Rodeo

    General CommentBeautiful melody ... wistful lyrics. Is it about Stevie? The Mac? Or Anne Heche (who he apparently had a relationship with -- also, listen to the references to Annie in the outro)? Or none of the above?

    Either way, one of Lindsey's better solo efforts.

    General CommentFrom an interview: "Down On Rodeo" is another track on "Under the Skin" that reflects Fleetwood Mac's heady days, with lyrics such as "After the music ended there was/Nowhere to go but down" and "We never took quite enough chances we/Never had quite enough time." "It's sort of looking at relationships that go by the wayside," both romantic and musical relationships, Buckingham said. A band can be successful commercially and critically, but he said "it doesn't mean you're having internal success."
