After the first verse, you can drop the Dm and Dm7 in the other verses


       C                     G
Let me tell you a tale and a good one I own 
      Dm     Dm7                C
Of an old caballo, a strawberry roan
      C             C7          F
I was hangin' round town just a spendin' my time
G                           C
Out of a job and not earnin' a dime
       C                G     
When a stranger steps up and he says "I suppose 
Dm       Dm7                C  
You're a bronc rider by the looks of your clothes."
  C                 C7             F 
I says, "Guess your right, there's none I can't tame
       G                                 C
If its ridin' wild ponies that my middle name."


Chorus:
C
Oh that strawberry roan
F                  C
Oh that strawberry roan
   F                         C     
He says he's a cayuse that's never been rode
    F                       C
The guy that gets on him is bound to get throwed
        G                   C
Throwed off that strawberry roan


Out in the horse corral standin' alone
Is an old caballo, a strawberry roan
Spavined old legs and small pigeon toes
Pair of pig eyes and a long Roman nose
Little pin ears and they're split at the tip
A big fourty four brand was on his left hip
So I puts on my spurs and I coils up my twine
Says to that stranger that ten spot is mine

Chorus 2:
Oh that strawberry roan
Oh that strawberry roan
I'll break him to saddle or break him my own
I'll ride him until he lies down with a grown
Bring on your strawberry roan

Then I puts on my blinds and it sure is a fight
Next comes the saddle - I screws her down tight
Steps up aboard him and rises the blind
Get out the way boys - he's gonna unwind
Shore is a broad walker he heaves a big sigh
He only lacks wings for to be on the fly
He's the worse buckin' bronco I've seen on the range
Turn on a nickle and give you some change

Chorus 3:
Oh that strawberry roan
Oh that strawberry roan
That sunfishin' critter's worth leavin' alone
There's nary a buster from Texas to Nome
Can ride that strawberry roan
Can ride that strawberry roan
