             | E5          |                                         |
way he feels.|    Well, she|knows his love's in Tulsa, and she knows,|

A7            |            |E5                               E7
he's gonna go.|    Well, it|ain't no woman, flesh and blood, it's that|

B5                           |E5  (chorus)
damned old rodeo,  Well, it's|bulls and blood, it's the dust and mud

        |A5                E5   E7          |E5
it's the|roar of a sunday crowd.    It's the|white in his knuckles,

                            |B5               D5      B5  |E5

chaps, it's cowboy hat's, it's|spurs and latigo.  It's the ropes|and the

                                              |B5              |E5

  |  G A|E5    |  G A         |

Verse 3 outro-

E5                  |
   It's the broncs  |and blood, it's the steers and the mud, and they

    |  B5                  |E5    |  G A|E5    |  G A|
call|     the thing rodeo. |      |     |      |     |


   Verse 2:

She does her best to hold him
When his love comes to call.
But his need for it controls him now,
Her backs against the wall.
And it's "So long, girl, I'll see you.",
When it's time for him to go.
You know the woman wants her cowboy
Like he wants his rodeo.  (chorus)

   Verse 3:

It'll drive a cowboy crazy,
It'll drive the man insane.
And he'll sell off everything he owns
Just to pay to play her game.
And a broken home and some broken bones
Is all he'll have to show
For all the years that he's spent cahsin'
this dream they call rodeo.  (chorus)


E5th chord is:
