Joade The Rodeo Clown
Recorded by Chris LeDoux

(Capo on 1)

Intro.:  6/8||(C) |(F) |(G) |(C) |(C) |

(C)Gather round boys and a (F)tale I will (G)tell

About (C)Joade the rodeo (G)clown

(C)This happy feller keep the (F)cowboys together

(G)After they hit the (C)ground

He (C)once was a fighter and a (F)saddle bronc (G)rider
And (C)all around hell of a (G)hand

But a (C)bull got him down a-(F)way from the clownin'

He (G)lived but not ride a-(C)gain

But (C)rodeo was burned (F)deep in his (G)soul

And his (C)heart just wouldn't let (G)go

He (C)didn't want cowboys (F)hooked by the bulls

So he (G)took to clowin' the (C)show

Solo:  |(C) |(D) |(D) 

With (D)grease paint and red nose and (G)baggy old (A)clothes

His (D)track shoes barrel and (A)broom

(D)He earned his keep a (G)fighting' the bulls

And (A)savin' us hard ridin' (D)fools

I was (D)down in the well and (G)hung in my (A)rope

In a (D)show in old west Texas (A)town

The (D)man who saved me from (G)changing' hells

Was (A)Joade the rodeo (D)clown

The (D)bull gored old Joade with his (G)terrible old (A)horns

Then (D)stomped and mauled him a-(A)round

(D)One of my buddies (G)dragged me away

But (A)Joade lay dead on the (D)ground ---

(D)(Dmaj7) The (G)preacher they found (A) for the funeral

(D) Well, he didn't have a whole lot to (A)say

(D) He didn't know Joade or a-(G)bout rodeo life

(A)So all he could do was to pray (D)

(D) There's many a cowboy that (G)owes him his life (A)

(D) And the children all loved him too (A)

There were (D)lines on his face and each (G)one was a trace

Of the (A)laughter the miles and the blues (D)

(D) So bar keep and he just better (G) set 'em up again (A)

(D) I'm buyin' this next round (A)

And (D)if there's any man here who can't (G)drink to old Joade ---

Then he (A)better just get the hell out --- (D) -----
