National Finals Rodeo by Chris Ledoux

Chris Ledoux

Its on the Rodeo songs old and new album

Track 10 NATIONAL FINALS RODEO

Bb D

A rodeo's just a rodeo after riding several years

F D F Bb

From ol' Cheyenne to Houston they never cause too much fear

D

But let me tell you about one that will chill your very soul

F D F Bb

It happens in December when it's snowin' and it's cold

D

In Oklahoma City there's a building of concrete

F D F Bb

It's where the toughest stock and men will gather and compete

D

The points have all been tallied and the stock has all been brought

F D F Bb

We've got just two more hours cause it starts at eight o'clock

Chorus

D Bb

It's the Finals the NFR the Series of the sport

D Cm

Hey rookie can you take ten head have you got the heart

D Bb

You think you're a tough cowboy we'll find out in the end

F D Bb

When that final whistle blows and the stock's all in the pen

Bb D

The coliseum's quiet except for the sounds

F D F Bb

Of cowboys getting ready and the workmen of the grounds

D

The cowboys ask each other, what each other's got

F D F Bb

Did you draw ol' Necklace or pluck old Double-Ought

D

The tension now is mounting as the crowd starts pouring in

F D F Bb

A shiver goes all through me like from a cold cold wind

D

I hear the horses comin' runnin' down the alleyway

F D F Bb

They're snortin' and a blowin' as men shut the sliding gates

(Repeat The Chorus)

Bb D

We had too much time a while ago but not enough time now

F D F Bb

The Anthem is now over the grand entry's going out

D

I sit there on my bronc I'm ready and I wait

F D F Bb

I hear a chute gate open so I look out through the gate

D

A horse comes boiling out and blows up at the roof

F D F Bb

And then there comes another kicking like a curly wolf

D

I hear the chute boss holler through the yelling of the crowd

F D F Bb

He says there's one ahead of you so you'd better get screwed down

(Repeat The Chorus)

Bb D

I nod my head, I'm in a daze the horse goes boiling out

F D F Bb

I run my spurrs into his neck and then I drag 'em out

D

My mind is in a blur my eyes are seeing red

F D F Bb

The flank catch slams into my back, his rump bangs on my head

D

From somewhere in the background I can hear a buzzer sound

F D F Bb

My hand's jerked from the riggin and I crash into the ground

D

I stumble to my feet as I stagger to the wall

F D F Bb

I wonder to myself is it really worth it all

(Repeat Chorus)

(Repeat Chorus & Fade)
