Even the greatest, will eventually find his match in the Bull ridin' arena.
This is the tale of Billy and the wild bull Hercules from Wyoming.
Billy had thought many a time about drawin' and takin' the challenge of ridin' that crazed bull, he'd heard so many stories about.
It's a hot September day,
The Bull riders will get things heated up a bit.
Billy is up next,
Suddenly, without warning there's a flash of fear!
What?!And not go for the bull, I've waited for years to ride ?
I know I can ride him!
Just yesterday my Father called and told me,
" Son, don't matter who you draw,
you'll ride that bull to the end! "
I've said my prayers and tested my rides!
As he wraps for the riggin' and sets his weight down on
the bulk of Herc, he vaguely hears the announcer as he gives the big call
for Hercules and Billy to blast into the arena.
" Cowboy up! "Billy can hear them all chant.
Hercules is one mad bull as he tries to lose this cowboy.
He turns his head as he throws his rear legs into the air the opposite direction.
Billy is still holdin' on.
Just then the bull gives a dip with the head and kicks up in another direction. Billy feels himself slipping off to one side.
It's not like Billy don't know what it feels like to have his body slam into the ground.
But, this was Herc, and no way did he want to meet his match here.
"I can't lose it now he tells himself, there has to only be 2 or 3 seconds left of this crazed 8 second ride."
Billy begins to feel like a chance is there to finish this ride, when the bull spots the rodeo clown.
Snortin' as he twist, his head and his back end flies up to the sky.
The fury of this bull is now out to get the irritating red object.
Even the greatest will eventually find his match in the Bull ridin' arena.
