The Cowboy Lane Frost

World Famous Bull Rider

The Cowboy Lane Frost

His legend lives on

But not with out cost

This is about a cowboy

A life that was lost


I'm sure all of you know him

His name was Lane Frost


At only 25 years

He left this life, Cheyenne was his last place

Leaving behind, his parents and a wife.


His world was about living

He made time for anyone he could

For a champion bull rider

His heart was good.


He had dreams as big as mountains

Only one could achieve

He was out to be rue and honest

He had no heart to deceive


He had the course of a lion

And the heat of a bull

And I'm sure we all know one thing

He lived life to the fullest.


So bow your head down

For a life that was lost

And remember that cowboy

Who's name was "Lane Frost"

Main idea

Lane Frost, World Champion Bull Rider. He was known for being the best and never giving up on life. He made time for anybody and everybody, he left friends and family at a young age but still carried his title to heaven.
The reason I chose this poem is because Lane Frost has always been my inspiration and my idol. He a had a big heart and knew how to live life to the fullest. Bull riding has always fascinated me by how those guys can take such a beating and how they can hold on. I also grew up watching the movie "8 Seconds" the movie about Lane Frost and how he died.

July in Cheyenne by:Aaron Watson



In the rain and the mud in July in Cheyenne
They had to carry away that brave young man
A little part of every heart of every rodeo fan
Died there in the rain and the mud in July in Cheyenne

Lookin' back it doesn't seem so long ago
He was bigger than life, God rest his soul
Why he died that day is hard to understand
Right there in the rain and the mud in July in Cheyenne

So tip your hat to the cowboy every once in a while
And take time to remember that cowboy's smile
A little part of every heart of every rodeo fan
Died there in the rain and the mud in July in Cheyenne

No buckles on a shelf collecting dust
Still his memory shines inside of all of us
Some miss their hero, some miss their friend
His mom and daddy long to see their little boy again


In the rain and the mud in July in Cheyenne
They had to carry away that brave young man
If your washed in the blood someday you'll see him again
And it won't be in the rain and the mud in July in Cheyenne

The Cowboy Lane Frost and the song July in Cheyenne both connects in many ways. Lane Frost died in Cheyenne, from a bull, he was bigger life and had dreams bigger than mountains. The song really explains how he lived his life and that he was a big inspiration to younger bull riders.

The Bull Rider

There's bulls and clowns

There's ups and downs

He's hooked on a eight-second ride.

There's spurs and blood

There's dust and mud

It's boots and chaps and cowboy hats.

There's eight-seconds to make or break

Let 'em ride, let 'em buck

We're just here to make buck.

Any cowboy would understand

What it takes to ride for grand.
