Iron Cowgirl Missy

Life is a journey, and I believe there is an Iron Cowgirl in every one of us women; I became one. Ever Feel
like running away? Running Away From EVERYTHING and EVERYONE? I did, and it was a
journey of a lifetime! "The greatest feeling in the world is to have people believe in you,
when you don't have the strength to believe in yourself". Thank You to all who
relate to the words I write... I'm "Chasing My Dreams" with a fury!
Who Is The Iron Cowgirl?
15,000 Miles in 10 weeks = An Iron Will and a Heart of Steel.
Growing up on a farm , has given me a love for horses ,
motorcycles , the outdoors , music ,
and always a good challenge! I''ve ridden across the state of Michigan (MTRA Member) four
times , and each time was a journey and great sense of accomplishment , not to mention the
opportunity of playing my guitar around a campfire , meeting a ton of really great people
and making life-long friends! 2003, I was diagnosed with a characinoid tumor, and three days later, my horse ,"Roger" passed away;
I was devastated , and spent a while at The Cleveland Cancer Clinic and thanks to great doctors
and God, I've been cancer free for seven years. Life Is Good, It's Another Great Day !
Life has thrown a few curve balls, but I've made it! Being a single mom for the last twenty-one years, I would
consider myself a very strong , very determined woman.
to stop my emotions from overriding my clear thinking (as my mom would say), and walk away from a
relationship, "A Casualty" as he called it.
The memories have been created by pain and made into lyrics,
I can't help myself................
Believing in love, turned my Heart to Steel. An Iron Cowgirl I became, riding a horse with two
wheels . I let go of the reins , grabbed a hold of that wheel, I was chasing the sun, trying to heal.
I would ride for hours, days at a time, trying to find me , one mile at a time ..
15,000 miles to be exact, taking me 10 weeks, and yes that's a fact.. I rode around the coast of Michigan, but
it wasn't far enough away. I headed down to Florida , to the Gulf of Mexico,
but still couldn't find my way. The Smoky Mountains were beautiful and I met a Dragon in
Deals Gap 318 curves, 11 miles, and I wasn't looking back. With a tent, a sleeping bag
and my guitar strapped to the side of my bike, I headed West on Rt. 90, into the night.
Riding away from the one I love, looking for a little help from up above.
Finally arriving in Sturgis, South Dakota at "The Legendary Buffalo Chip", where the people are so free, the
Presidents from the past and Crazy Horse was a sight to see!
I would camp along the way and play at night. My heart and my mind were a continuous fight.
I rode and rode, I seen every sun set , I met so many kind people I'll never forget!
I would never trade, they've all been defined, by this music I've made.
