I AIN’T RIDIN’ SIDESADDLE!
By Donna Penley
Some folks jest don’t relish life
Like they ought to do –Don’t rowdy it an’ randy it,
Paint th’ town a bright red hue.
They live their life “conservative”,
Never riskin’ a great deal;
How do they know they’ve experienced
What it’s possible to feel?
I want t’ride my horse full out--
Feel th’ cool wind in my hair;
Feel th’ power underneath me,
That’s his an’ mine to share.
No, I ain’t ridin’ sidesaddle;
I want to sit with pride --
My body meldin’ with th’ horse,
An’ match him stride for stride!
An’, I’ll dare to go full out
For th’ things in life I love;
So, I ain’t ridin’ sidesaddle!
I swear to God above!
Let me relish each new day –
Drink it in an’ gulp it down;
You may not think my manners great –
Upon me you might frown –
But I ain’t ridin’ sidesaddle!
Let me tell you that, my friend,
Just let me meet MY life head on –
Until I go ‘round th’ bend!So, till th’ Bossman in th’ sky decides to call me in –
I AIN’T RIDIN’ SIDESADDLE!!!
