Chris Ledoux - The Bull Rider guitar chord

C F

I was sittin' in a bar room one rainy afternoon

C F

Tellin' stories about a rodeo and listenin' to a tune

C F

The rodeo starts tomorrow in this one horse town

G7 F C

So Bill took our names and put our entries down

C F

I went to the rodeo office the next day to see

C F

What bareback horse I had and to pay my fees

C F

I looked across the list but my name wasn't to be found

G7 F C

I thought Bill just might have forgot to put me down

C F

I looked across the board and I happened to find

C F

My name was on another list I was in the bull ridin'

C F

My knees began to knock and my face began to sweat

G7 F C

And I heaved and gagged on the rodeo office step

C F

Well I may be a fool but a coward I'm not

C F

So I borrowed myself a bull rope with a bell in the knot

C F

I walked into the arena with them other bull ridin' fools

G7 F C

I walked down the chutes and finally found my bull

C F

Then I put my rope in the middle of his back

C F

And had some cowboy pull up the slack

C F

Then I wrapped the tail around my hand and back

G7 F C

And said boys open that gate just a little bitty crack

C F

Well the bull hit the gate with his head

C F

And I could see over his hump that his eyes were red

C F

He bailed out of there with a big snort and beller

G7 F C

And something inside me told me I was yeller

C F

Well the dust and hair and flies from off of his hump

C F

Did wisk to my nose as he made another jump

C F

And the stink of it all was more than I could stand

G7 F C

So I jerked my wrap and opened up my hand

C F

Well he jumped in the air and he made one more turn

C F

And as the rope slid through my hand it sure did burn

C F

He flung me down in a great big heap

G7 F C

Then right in the middle of me he did leap

no chord C(single strum) F(single strum)

With his feet in my belly a standin' in place

C(single strum) F(single strum)

That dirty filthy old bull blew snot in my face

C F

So them damned old bulls you can run'em in a chute

C F

And put your ropes on them big galloots

C F

But the closest you're gonna find me to their stinkin' hair

G7 F C

Is to help some other fool get flung in the air
