Park, Kyle - Rio Lyrics

I bought him down in Houston from a cowboy friend of mine
He said he'd named him Rio, got him on the border line
He's bred just like the river, and he runs as free and wild
A good horse don't get no better, he can weather any mile
He said, "Why don't you take him out past the lake and let him run?
And you'll come to know that red turns to gold in a setting sun"

Every valley and mountain, I ride up and down them
I go wherever Rio goes
From the top to the bottom, I don't try to stop him
I just go wherever Rio goes

And when we came up on the river, I could tell the horse had changed
There was somethin' 'bout that water, like it was runnin' through his veins
And ill never understand it, how he knew just what to do
In the shadows of the darkness, hell you couldn't see the moon
And I don't believe that Rio could see each step he'd take
But sure as the rain, he finds his way to the river bank

Every valley and mountain, I ride up and down them
I go wherever Rio goes
From the top to the bottom, I don't try to stop him
I just go wherever Rio goes

Oh he said, "Why don't you take him out past the lake and let him run?
And I came to find my own peace of mind with the risin' sun

And every valley and mountain, I ride up and down them
I go wherever Rio goes
From the top to the bottom, I don't try to stop him
I just go wherever Rio goes

Every trail, every turn, every lesson I learned
I followed his heart and his soul, so I go, I just go
Wherever Rio goes
Wherever Rio goes

  21. James Kalata

    I love watching a horse run just cause it can. Watching a colt get used to walking and then immediately run makes me smile.

  22. Tommy Phillips

    Hella of a calf roper! Love to see horses get the recognition they deserve! A good horse is hard to come by.

  37. Danny Pacheco

    What they couldn't find someone that could actually ride a horse for this video?! He can probably calf rope, but he can't even ride! What a joke and im lot of ya cant even tell.

    Kyle Park

    Nathan Norris

    I think he can ride pretty Damn good

    Danny Pacheco

    Lots of not very well experienced people seem to think that just because an athlete is prca card holder he/she is as good as it gets. This is a perfect example to the saying that goes like " money talks and shit walks" only people that are true horsemen, or cowboy can pin point the non horsemen. For example professional horseman chris cox makes a good horse and can do anything a prca horse can do, but a prca cowboy and horse cant do what a chris cox horse can do. Its simple though just do a little research 😊✌

  38. Jose Hernandez

  45. hcarlile73c1

    30 years ago my husband uses to endurance race horses. we would ride in the Kiamichi mountains of southeast Oklahoma in the day and night, up hills and over rocks and through creeks, when i first heard this song, i cried happy tears, it reminded me of those days. He horse was Gunsmoke he rode him 50 miles in 2 hours and 46 mins and won and the horse was barely winded. This song reminds me of my youth. I still love him, 3 boys and 7 grandbabies later he is still sexy and my one and only soul mate.

    Anybody naming their new horse Rio? I know I am!


    I used to ride a delightfully sassy mare named Rio, but she was named after the Duran Duran song, which incidentally also mentions to the Rio Grande.

    Nathan Norris

    My horse was already named Rio before i ever heard this
