Amy Ray — Rodeo lyrics

She comes down to Georgia to dance across my kitchen floor,
Leavin' black marks on linoleum, a country song on the radio.
I am just a rodeo calf with tender feet and sewn on horns and
Love is a kindness that I've never known before,
I've never known before.

She say's "I'm bound to Carolina to join the kids in 'Truth or Dare'."
And she laughs and says it's just a game when I tell her that I'm scared.
I am just a dog waitin' at the kitchen door,
Love is a kindness that I've never known before,
I've never known before.

Make it last, make it stay
Can you hold on long enough to make this pay.

She said," My daddy was a grifter and I was in my momma's way,
So I drifted for a while, because I could not stand to stay."
And she said, "Love is a kindness that I've never understood."
I said, "I'll give it to you willingly, it's something you deserve,
Its something you deserve."

And I'll make it last, I'll make it stay.
If you can hold on long enough I can make this pay.

'Cause I am just a calf with tender feet and sewn on horns,
