Indian Cowboy by Joe Ely
If you [C]ever go [G] out to the [C] circus
Where the Wallendas walk on the [G]wire.
I'll [C]tell you a tale to re- [F]member
When the [C] white horses [G] leaped rings of [C]fire.
It was a cold [G] night in Okla- [G]homa
And the show was about to be-[G]gin
The [C] animals they was all [F] restless
When the [C] star-horse she [G]broke from her [C]pen
Now, she was a [G]mare of high [C]spirits
Like a whore on a Saturday [G] night
Just a-[C]kickin' and a-buckin' while the [F]men
The [C] elephants [G] lined on the [C]side
Now close to the [G] tent sat a [C] lantern
Dangerously close to the [G] hay
That [C]mare headed straight for that [F]lantern
Some [C] fool left [G]there by [C]mistake
Then up jumps an [G] Indian [C] Cowboy
his lasso he whirls through the [G] air.
Smack-[C]dab in the middle of [F]danger
He [C]ropes the [G]runaway [C]mare
And the elephants [G] raised up their [C]trumpets
And one of them broke from her [G] chains
And stam-[C] peded that Indian [F]Cowboy
Who [C] just saved the [G] big top from [C]flames.
Re-[C]member that Indian [F]Cowboy
When the [C]white horses [G]leap rings of [C]fire.
