Intro - G  Dmaj  C  Dsus4 
        C  Em7  Am  Dsus4 D


G             Dmaj            C         Dsus4
  I like your twisted point of view, Mike.
C             Em7          Am        Dsus4  D  
  I like your questioning eyebrows,
G                Dmaj              C        Dsus4
  You've made it pretty clear what you like,
C           Em7             Am       Dsus4  D   
  It's only fair to tell you now.


Em              D             C       G
  That I leave early in the morning,
Am                           D        Dsus4  D
  And I won't be back till next year.
Em            D               C       G
  I see that kiss-me pucker forming,
      Am                               D     Dsus4  D  
  But maybe you should plug it with a beer, cause,


G          D        C                    G
Papa was a rodeo - Mama was a rock'n'roll band,
        G               D             C                    D
I could play guitar and rope a steer before I learned to stand.
 G                     D             C                    G
Home was anywhere with diesel gas - Love was a trucker's hand.
G                  D                 C          Em7  Am 
Never stuck around long enough for a one night stand.
                               G
Before you kiss me you should know,
C      D         G  Dmaj  C  Dsus4  C  Dsus4  D
  Papa was a rodeo.

 
G             Dmaj             C           Dsus4    
  The light reflecting off the mirror ball,
C              Em7            Am      Dsus4 D
  Looks like a thousand swirling eyes.
G                Dmaj               C           Dsus4
  They make me think I shouldn't be here at all,
      C           Em7             Am       Dsus4  D  
  You know, every minute someone dies.


Em              D             C       G
  What are we doing in this dive bar,
Am                           D        Dsus4  D
  How can you live in a place like this?
Em            D               C       G
  Why don't you just get into my car,
      Am                               D     Dsus4  D  
  And I'll take you away I'll take that kiss now, but, 


G          D        C                    G
Papa was a rodeo - Mama was a rock'n'roll band,

G                  D                 C          Em7  Am

                               G
Before you kiss me you should know,
C      D         G  Dmaj  C  Dsus4  C  Em7  Am  Dsus4  D
  Papa was a rodeo.


Em              D             C       G
  And now it's 55 years later.
Am                             D      
  We've had the romance of the century,
Em            D                   C       G
  After all these years wrestling gators,
    Am                            D                 Dsus4   D 
  I still feel like crying when I think of what you said to me.
