Ride a Wide Circle

You’re packed up and tacked up and hittin’ the trail

What lies ahead Heaven knows

The road is wide open to write your own tale

So here’s my wish for you as you go

 

I hope you ride a wide circle ‘round troublin’ times

Keep the wind at your back, stars in your eyes

May you find a pard who is one of a kind

And ride a wide circle ‘round troublin’ times

Oh ride a wide circle 'round troublin’ times

 

Sit tall in the saddle and find your own path

Lead with your whole heart and soul

Lean into the future and learn from the past

And know that you’re never alone and

 

I hope you ride a wide circle ‘round troublin’ times

Keep the wind at your back, stars in your eyes

May you find a pard who is one of a kind

And ride a wide circle ‘round troublin’ times

Oh ride a wide circle 'round troublin’ times

 

You’ll have highs and lows, joy and sorrow

So love, love, love like there’s no tomorrow and

 

I hope you ride a wide circle ‘round troublin’ times

Keep the wind at your back, stars in your eyes

May you find a pard who is one of a kind

And ride a wide circle ‘round troublin’ times

Oh ride a wide circle 'round troublin’ times

 

You’re packed up and tacked up and hittin’ the trail
