The Bucking Machine

1st verse:


I've rode lots of horses and i've won a few shows

F# B

ridin broncs at the big old rodeos


but the dagdest contraption that i've ver seen

F# B

it that bucket of bolts called a buckin machine

2nd verse:

the kids they were all lined up to give the thing a go

and when i first saw it, lord, it looked pretty slow

it jumped and it kicked then it turned back and twirled

then i got to thikin--I'll give it a whirl



So i pushed through the crowd and i talked ot the man

F# B

who had invented this here modified garbage can


i said i'm a twister, and one of the best

F# B

i'm a wolf of the world, boys, i must confess

3rd verse:

i'll bet you a hunderd, i said with a grin

i'll spur it so hard its sides'll cave in

and the bolts and the screws that hold the dang thing together

will fall down inside it there and short out it motor

4th verse

well, the man, he said, "son, i'll take that bet,

and i won't turn it on til you think that you're set."

so i got my riggin, and i cinched it on down

then i said to old sam, "go ahead and turn it on."


Well, it rattled and it groaned, then it started to move

i spurred it every jump, and, Lord, it fell mighty smooth

the foam rubber was a flyin right of of its old neck

and the tin underneath, it was startin to crack

5th verse:

I looked at the man and i started to say

I'll win me that hundred for the end of the day

the grababed a big lever with a little sly grin

jammed it up to high gear and locked it right on in


With a snathc and a jekr and a sharp stabbin pain

I fell like a hobo tied to an old freaight train

my head it went to poppin and i saw all the starts

The Big Dipper, The Milky Way, The planet they call Mars

6th verse:

The next thing i knew i was right there on the ground

just about 30 feet away from that laughin crowd

so i payed up my hunderd and i limped on away

and the words the man said, i still remember today


so you're a wolf of the world and a real tough twister

well listen real close to some good advise mister

keep a ridin them old broncs is you're still feelin mean

but you'd better keep clear of sam's buckin' machine
