[VERSE 1]

F           F/E             Dm         Dm7
I like your twisted point of view, Mike  
A#           A#/A              Gm7    C
I like your questioning eyebrows 
F              F/E              Dm       Dm7
You've made it pretty clear what you like 
A#         A#/A              Gm7    C
It's only fair to tell you now  
Dm           Dm7          A#       A#/A
that I leave early in the morning 
Gm7                      C        Csus  C
and I won't be back till next year  
Dm         Dm7            A#      A#/A
I see that kiss-me pucker forming  
Gm7                                 C     Csus  C
but maybe you should plug it with a beer, cause 


[CHORUS 1]

F          F/E    Dm                      Dm7          
Papa was a rodeo - Mama was a rock'n'roll band                
        F               F/E         A#                    C            
I could play guitar and rope a steer before I learned to stand  
F                      F/E         A#                     F
Home was anywhere with diesel gas - Love was a trucker's hand  
F                  F/E              A#         A#/A      
Never stuck around long enough for a one night stand 
Gm7                           F
Before you kiss me you should know 
A#    C         F
Papa was a rodeo

F F/E Dm Dm7 A# C Csus C 


[VERSE 2]

F           F/E             Dm         Dm7
The light reflecting off the mirror ball 
A#           A#/A              Gm7    C
looks like a thousand swirling eyes 
F           F/E             Dm         Dm7
They make me think I shouldn't be here at all 
A#           A#/A              Gm7    C
You know, every minute someone dies 
Dm           Dm7          A#       A#/A
What are we doing in this dive bar 
Gm7                      C        Csus  C
How can you live in a place like this 
Dm           Dm7          A#       A#/A
Why don't you just get into my car 
Gm7                      C        Csus  C
and I'll take you away I'll take that kiss now, but 


[CHORUS 2]

F          F/E    Dm                      Dm7          
Papa was a rodeo - Mama was a rock'n'roll band                
        F               F/E         A#                    C            
I could play guitar and rope a steer before I learned to stand  
F                      F/E         A#                     F
Home was anywhere with diesel gas - Love was a trucker's hand  
F                  F/E              A#         A#/A      
Never stuck around long enough for a one night stand 
Gm7                           F
Before you kiss me you should know 
A#    C         F

[VERSE 3]

Dm           Dm7          A#       A#/A
And now it's 55 years later 
Gm7                      C        Csus  C
We've had the romance of the century 
Dm           Dm7          A#       A#/A
After all these years wrestling gators 
Gm7                      C        Csus  C
I still feel like crying when I think of what you said to me 


[CHORUS 3]

Home was anywhere with diesel gas - Love was a trucker's hand  
F                  F/E              A#         A#/A      
Never stuck around long enough for a one night stand 
Gm7                           F
Before you kiss me you should know 
 A#    C         F  F/E

What a coincidence, your Papa was a rodeo too.
