       C                 G5
From a carnie show and a rodeo 
     F        D7        G5
That shared a three day stand
  F            G            C
A cowboy met a firey carnie queen
   C                  G5
In new spring nights amid the lights 
       F       D7     G5
Of the painted carnie van
     F                     G                  C
They laughed and loved and shared short lived dreams
        C                   G5
But the carnie show and the rodeo 
F          D7       G5
Went their separate ways
        F             G                      C
And the carnie season bloomed and soon moved on
    C               G5
And I was born on a winter morn 
       F         D7    G5 
To the dark eyed carni queen
    F               G                  C
The too late son of something that was gone
    F                      G5 
The black sheep child that grew up wild 
         C                   F
From the seed the four winds sowed
         G*     C 
Unwanted son of ice and fire 
   F      G*     C
An orphan of the road

      C                     G5
I was still a child when my momma died 
       F          D7         G5
From a chill that closed her eyes
   F             G             C
So I was left to grow up on my own
     C             G5
Without a name too wild to tame 
F      D7       G5
No one cared to try
   F            G            C
So mostly I was mostly left alone
   C              G5
In dingy bars and cold box cars 
F    D7     G5
Hobo jungle camps
  F                  G                  C
I joined the men who drift from town to town
    C                G5
The surging flood of restless blood 
F        D7      G5
Flowed inside my veins
    F              G              C
I’d never find the time to settle down
    F                      G5
The black sheep child that grew up wild 
         C                   F
From the seed the four winds sowed
         G*     C
Unwanted son of ice and fire

   F      G*     C
An orphan of the road

       C            G5
In the misty rain I caught the train 
     F           D7          G5
That slowed down through the town
      F               G              C
And I pulled myself into the box car door
     C                    G5
In a passing light in the deep grey night 
  F     D7         G5 
I saw a still dark form
      F             G             C
Of an old man lying sick upon the floor
       C               G5 
And he said I tried to find her 
         F       D7      G5
But they told me she had died
    F                  G          C
And that she’d left an only son behind 
      C                       G5
And I tried to find him but I never did
      F            D7      G5
And I know I could rest in peace
   F                    G             C
If I could just see him once before I died
  C                   G5
I found a match and I quickly scratched it 
F    D7         G5
Into flickering flame
       F                   G                 C
Then I held it close and I gently raised his head
   C            G5
My mother sir I said of her 
  F        D7        G5
I have her same dark eyes
   F               G                  C
He smiled a cowboy smile and then was dead
    F                      G5
The black sheep child that grew up wild 
         C                   F
From the seed the four winds sowed
         G*     C
Unwanted son of ic and fire
   F      G*     C
An orphan of the road
