[Girl Narrating]

The only difference between

cowgirls and angels,

my granddaddy used to say,

is that angels

can't ride as good.


Hello, hello, busy city

You let your light shine bright

Hello, good day

Good morning and good night

Hello, hello to the heartland


You make me feel just right

Hello, good day

Good morning and good night

Hey, world,

I hope you're listening

When I say how

The more places that I go

The more I seem to know

I think you're beautiful

Hey, world,

I hope you're listening

When I say how

The more places that I go

The more I seem to know

I think you're beautiful

I think you're beautiful


I wouldn't call myself a cowgirl.

And I'm not much

of an angel, either.

The truth be told,

I'm not really a rodeo fan.

But it was summertime,

and the rodeo was the most

exciting thing around.



I'm not exactly your typical

Oklahoma girl.

See, I'm half-orphan,

which means I don't have a daddy.

And my mama works all the time.

So I'm basically on my own.

I did have a granddaddy.

He was a rodeo trick rider.

- One of the best.

- [Groans]

When I was real little,

he'd tell me,

"It's not enough for a man

to know how to ride.

He's gotta know how to fall."

Well, I couldn't ride a horse

to save my life.

I have to admit, though,

it sure looked like fun.

- Yeehaw!

- Hey! What are you doin'

in my purse?

- Get outta there! Get on!

- Hey! What are you doin'

under here?

Come here.

Hey, you can't get away

from me, now... Hey!

Just stop!



All right.

Come on out of there.


Security guard went that way.

I suggest you go that way.

Thank you, sir.


- And don't let me

catch you in here again.

- I promise!

[Whinnies, Blusters]

It's... It's okay, boy.

Whoa, hey.

Hey, boy.

Come on. Step off it.

[Whinnies Quietly]

Come on.

Work with me, boy.

Here we go.

Come on over here.

[Clicks Tongue]

What are you doin'

out here, huh? All you need

is just a little love.

Ha. Good boy.

Here we go.


All right, girls,

listen up.

Real nice job, ladies.

Just a few little things

I noticed I think

we can improve on.

Nora, when we crack the whip,

you gotta keep up, okay?

I know.


[Man Continuing]

Has to be a tassel...

Hi. That was an awfully

great show, everybody.

- Thank you!

- [Chuckles]


Like I said,

I ain't much of an angel, either.

Yep. The only ridin' I did

was on my old bicycle.

One thing was for sure.

I wasn't gonna tell my mama

I was hanging out at rodeos.

She hated the rodeo.

"Rodeo's nothin' but

a bunch of deadbeats,"

she'd say.

And by rodeo...

she really just meant my daddy.


[Woman] Hey, Punky Brewster,

just checkin' in on ya.

I know I promised

to swing by the market.

But we are

shorthanded tonight.

You know the drill.

Gotta be somethin'

left in the old fridge,

right? Love you.


Love you too.

[No Audible Dialogue]


Mama made it clear

a long time ago.

No talkin' 'bout my daddy.

Wouldn't even tell me his name.

But just like a Texas Ranger,

I had my ways.


I'm sorry

for the sudden departure.

I'll always remember you.


Can you think of a cooler name

for your daddy than that?

I mean, I'm not tryin'

to get down, but...

that's only the third

rodeo since spring

and there ain't been a...

Sorry. There hasn't been

a "Walker" at any of them.

I mean, at this rate,

my grandkids are gonna still

be lookin' for him.



Okay. Whoa. Whoa.

[Horse Grunts]

All right.

Just wait a second.
