I have read that those who wrote it claim
that it was all written from their mind,
yet ironically it mentions a rodeo cowboy
who was up in Wyoming and drew a bull no man could ride,
technically no bull is unridable unless it is very dangerous.
Still,people ride dangerous bulls,that just happens.
The Lines of the Chorus of the Song go:
They say she just went crazy
Screaming out his name
She ran out into the ocean
To the day they claim
If you go down by the water
You’ll see her footprints in the sand
Cause every night she walks the Beaches of Cheyenne
Either Garth Brooks made it all up
or somehow wrote it about Lane Frost.
The latter is what I suspected all of these years
even though their conversation was about making it all up.
It still does not feel right to me
and I honestly do not know why.
Maybe the fact that they supposedly made it all up
and through the years I have grew to believe every word is a actual event
or they are not telling the total story of why they wrote the song
and only talking vaguely about why they wrote the song.
Anyway the song is a classic song right now.
I just wish that the music video of “Beaches of Cheyenne” was available.
