After the first verse, you can drop the Dm and Dm7 in the other verses

C G

Let me tell you a tale and a good one I own

Dm Dm7 C

Of an old caballo, a strawberry roan

C C7 F

I was hangin' round town just a spendin' my time

G C

Out of a job and not earnin' a dime

C G

When a stranger steps up and he says "I suppose

Dm Dm7 C

You're a bronc rider by the looks of your clothes."

C C7 F

I says, "Guess your right, there's none I can't tame

G C

If its ridin' wild ponies that my middle name."

Chorus:

C

Oh that strawberry roan

F C

Oh that strawberry roan

F C

He says he's a cayuse that's never been rode

F C

The guy that gets on him is bound to get throwed

G C

Throwed off that strawberry roan

Out in the horse corral standin' alone

Is an old caballo, a strawberry roan

Spavined old legs and small pigeon toes

Pair of pig eyes and a long Roman nose

Little pin ears and they're split at the tip

A big fourty four brand was on his left hip

So I puts on my spurs and I coils up my twine

Says to that stranger that ten spot is mine

Chorus 2:

Oh that strawberry roan

Oh that strawberry roan

I'll break him to saddle or break him my own

I'll ride him until he lies down with a grown

Bring on your strawberry roan

Then I puts on my blinds and it sure is a fight

Next comes the saddle - I screws her down tight

Steps up aboard him and rises the blind

Get out the way boys - he's gonna unwind

Shore is a broad walker he heaves a big sigh

He only lacks wings for to be on the fly

He's the worse buckin' bronco I've seen on the range

Turn on a nickle and give you some change

Chorus 3:

Oh that strawberry roan

Oh that strawberry roan

That sunfishin' critter's worth leavin' alone

There's nary a buster from Texas to Nome

Can ride that strawberry roan

Can ride that strawberry roan
