Verse 2
Oh the stories we could tell if it weren't for the code of the road
About the Buckboard, Bear Creek, Cowboys and the Grizzly Rose
You know the weather turned bad in Scottsdale
A tornado nearly stole the show
We just danced in the rain and listened to the thunder rolls

It was one big party, Uncle Joe you know we owe it all to you
Back when the old stuff was new
