VERSE (1)

G           G/F#             Em7         D
I like your twisted point of view, Mike  
C           C/B              Am7    D
I like your questioning eyebrows 
G              G/F#              Em7       D
You've made it pretty clear what you like 
C         C/B              Am7    D
It's only fair to tell you now  


VERSE (2)

Em           Em7          C       C/B
that I leave early in the morning 
A7                         D   Dsus  D
and I won't be back till next year  
Em         Em7            C      C/B
I see that kiss-me pucker forming  
A7                                  D     Dsus   D
but maybe you should plug it with a beer, cause 


CHORUS

G          G/F#    Em7                      D          
Papa was a rodeo - Mama was a rock'n'roll band                
        G               G/F#         C                    D            
I could play guitar and rope a steer before I learned to stand  
G                      G/F#         C                     G
Home was anywhere with diesel gas - Love was a trucker's hand  
G                  G/F#              C         C/B      
Never stuck around long enough for a one night stand 
A7                            G
Before you kiss me you should know 
C    D         G
Papa was a rodeo 


BRIDGE

G | G/F# | Em7 | D | C | C/B | D- Dsus - D | 


VERSE (1)

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 


VERSE(2)

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


BRIDGE (X2)


VERSE (2)

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


CHORUS

 C    D         G  G/F#
…Papa was a rodeo 


OUTRO

Em7       D               C         D     G
What a coincidence, your Papa was a rodeo too.
