Intro - Cadd9 and C


Verse 1 -

C           Em               F         G
I like your twisted point of view, Mike
C           Em          F       G
I like your questioning eyebrows
C              Em       
         F       G
You've made it pretty clear what you like
C         Em               F    G
It's only fair to tell you now
Am                        Dm
that I leave early in the morning
Am                            Dm
and I won't be back till next year
Am                        Dm
I see that kiss-me pucker forming
Am                                  Dm    Dsus4
but maybe you should plug it with a beer, 'cause

Chorus -

C          G
Papa was a rodeo
F          G
Mama was a rock'n'roll band
C                   G
I could play guitar and rope a steer
F                   G
before I learned to stand
C                      G
Home was anywhere with diesel gas
F                    G
Love was a trucker's hand
C                  G
Never stuck around long enough
F                    G
for a one-night stand.
Am                            Dm
Before you kiss me you should know
Am               Cadd9
Papa was a rodeo

Verse 2 - 

The light reflecting off the mirror ball
looks like a thousand swirling eyes
They make me think I shouldn't be here at all 
You know, every minute someone dies
What are we doing in this dive bar?
How can you live in a place like this?
Why don't you just get into my car
And I'll take you away
I'll take that kiss now, but

Chorus -

Papa was a rodeo
Mama was a rock'n'roll band
I could play guitar and rope a steer
before I learned to stand
Home was anywhere with diesel gas
Love was a trucker's hand
Never stuck around long enough
for a one-night stand
Before you kiss me you should know
Papa was a rodeo

Bridge -

C            Em
And now it's 55 years later
F                        G
We've had the romance of the century
C                     Em                       
After all these years wrestling gators
F
I still feel like crying
G
When I think of what you said to me:

Chorus -

"Papa was a rodeo
Mama was a rock'n'roll band
I could play guitar and rope a steer
before I learned to stand
Home was anywhere with diesel gas
Love was a trucker's hand
Never stuck around long enough
for a one-night stand
Before you kiss me you should know
Papa was a rodeo,"

What a coincidence
Your papa was a rodeo, too
