Lyrics

Rodeo Girl (G)
INTRO in (G)

Well (G) Riding through the range,
I met a (Am) sweet young beautiful thing
I remember it (C) was like... (D) yesterday
{ walk down to (G) }
(G) We came out of the gate,
we (Am) holding each other so tight
(C) Life's bucks and turns couldn't (D) get us down

-----------------------CHORUS---------------------------
(C) She's (Cb) my (Am) Sweet little (C) rodeo (G) girl
(C) We (Cb) had (Am) vowed
(C) to give it a (G) whirl
(G) Please don't let them knock us off
No (Am) girl don't you run and hide
From (C) LIFE'S EIGHT SECOND (D) ride
(C) She's (Cb) my (Am) Sweet
little (C) rodeo (D) girl … (Dsus) …

Small Lead (2 measures G / Am / C / G)

While riding thru the range
I hit some rough trails
I couldn't for see
I lost my job and it was really hard on me
{walk down}
Sometimes I treated you rough
Now you say you've had enough
But please don't leave
cause you know I've made a change

****REPEAT CHORUS****

***repeat small lead G / Am / C / G ***

YOUR MY SWEET LITTLE RODEO GIRL.. WE HAD VOWED..

Now you rode off to the west
I'm hoping I can meet the test
You left the THREE CORD ROPE
to rot and fray {walk down}
So I'm on the trail of tears
Leaving hope broke down to fears
No more riding together on the range

-------MODIFIED CHORUS-----------
Are you MY SWEET RODEO GIRL?
YOU HAD VOWED to give it a whirl
Please don't let them knock us off,
no girl don't you run & hide
From THIS EIGHT SECOND RIDE.
(C) Are (Cb) you (Am) my Sweet (C) rodeo (G) girl
(C) Where's (Cb) my (Am) Sweet little (C) rodeo (D) girl … (Dsus) …
