Chris Ledoux - Them Bareback Horses guitar chord

THEM BAREBACK HORSES

by CHRIS LeDOUX

C

Them bareback horses are the only thing

F

They make your back hurt they make your bell ring

G7

They're hard on tailbones and they make your neck sore

C

But when it's all over you're craving some more

Well you drive down the road in a broke down car

F

You stop in some town you wonder where in the hell you are

G7

You get yourself a road map and head out once again

C

With only enough for fees so you'd damn sure better win

F C

You finally make the pitchin' with your entry fees all paid

G7 C

You get on another snatcher and he flings you away

C F

So you head to town broken hearted lookin' for a chance

G7 C

To get a little drunk and find some girl and dance

F

Well you meet a little girl at the bar all alone

G7 C

You whoop some words on her to get her to take you home

F

But she's got a big boyfriend who just came from the can

G7 C

And he says move on there buddy cause he's her lovin' man

F C

So you climb back in your car after your little bitty fight

G7

You're drunk and broken hearted

C

And it's twelve o'clock at night

F

And you ain't got a dime in your old blue jeans

G7

But by god you got a half a tank of gas

C

And a can of pork and beans

F

You write a hot check to pay your fees once again

G7 C

You got yourself a good one so you ought to win

F

The horse is standin' in the chute then he bucks around

G7 C

The whistle blows then you're standin' on the ground

F C

The judges total their markings and they tally up the score

G7 C

And you're beatin' everybody by at least ten points or more

F

So you climb back in your car with a pocket full of cash

G7 C

A good feelin' in your heart and a tank full of gas

F

But boys the day finally comes when you get old and grey

G7 C

You gotta hang your spurs up and put your riggin' away

F

You look back now with a wantin' eye

G7 C

But brother it's all gone so you sit and cry
