From the album Complete Surrender

Lyrics

VERSE
She’s the phantom of the rodeo
She comes from out of nowhere
Each and every June
Underneath the Montana moon
He said he’d meet her back here soon

VERSE
She’s the phantom of the rodeo
Her eyes pierce the night
She was his biggest fan
She’s been comin’ here for a long, long time
Searchin’ for her bull-ridin’ man

FIRST CHORUS
Sharing all those years ago
A moment only lovers can
He said off to war now he must go
As they laid woman to man

VERSE
She’s the phantom of the rodeo
She used to ride and rope
It was more than she could understand
But she has not lost hope
She’s still searchin’ for her sweet-lovin’ man

SECOND CHORUS
(But) He flew away in a plane that day
Montana/war-zone bound
But she never really heard them say
That he had been shot down

VERSE
She’s the phantom of the rodeo
She looks in back-door places
She says his name is Jim
She peers into startled faces
And she asks if anyone has seen him

Repeat SECOND CHORUS

VERSE
She’s the phantom of the rodeo
She fades into a ghostly blur
Goin’ back from where she came
No one gives but a thought to her
And no one even knows her name

TAG
She’s the phantom of a long-ago rodeo
She was my mom; he was my dad
