The Bucking Machine 
Recorded by Chris LeDoux

(Capo on 3)

Intro.:  | (G) | (C) | (D) | (G) | (G)

(Verse 1)
(G)I've rode lots of horses and I've (C) won a few shows
(D) Ridin' broncos at the (G)big old rodeos
But the (G)dang-dest contraption (C)that I've ever seen
Is that (D) bucket of bolts called a buckin' ma-(G)chine

(Verse 2)
The (G)kids they were all lined up to (C)give the thing a go
And (D)when I first saw it, lord, it (G)looked pretty slow
It jumped and it kicked then it (C)turned back and twirled
Then (D)I got to thinkin' I'll give it a (G)whirl

So I (C)pushed through the crowd and I (G)talked to the man
(D) Who had invented this here (G)modified garbage can
I (C)said I'm a twister, and (G)one of the best
I'm a (D)wolf of the world, boys, I must con-(G)fess

(Verse 3)
I'll (G)bet you a hundred, I (C)said with a grin
I'll (D)spur it so hard its (G)sides will cave in
And the bolts and the screws that hold the (C)dang thing together
Will (D)fall down inside it there and short out it (G)motor

(Verse 4)
Well, the (G)man, he said, "Son, (C) I'll take that bet,
And I (D)won't turn it on 'til you (G)think that you're set"
So I got my riggin' and I (C) cinched it on down
Then I (D)said to old Sam, "Go ahead and turn it (G)on"

Well, it (C)rattled and it groaned, then it (G)started to move
I (D)spurred it every jump, and, Lord, it (G)fell mighty smooth
The foam (C)rubber was a flyin' right (G)off of its old neck
And the (D)tin underneath, it was startin' to (G)crack

Harmonica solo:  | (G) | (C) | (D) | (G) | (G)

(Verse 5)
I (G)looked at the man and I (C) started to say
I'll (D)win me that hundred for the (G)end of the day
Then he grabbed a big ol' lever with a (C)little sly grin
(D)Jammed it up to high gear and locked it right on (G)in

With a (C)snatch and a jerk and a (G)sharp stabbin' pain
I (D)felt like a hobo tied (G)to an old freight train
My (C)head, it went to poppin' and I (G)saw all the stars
The Big (D)Dipper, The Milky Way, The planet they call (G)Mars

(Verse 6)
(G) The next thing I knew I was (C)right there on the ground
Just a-(D)bout thirty feet away from that (G)laughin' crowd
So I paid up my hundred and I (C)limped on away
And the (D)words the man said, I still remember today (G)

So you're a (C)wolf of the world and a (G)real tough twister
Well (D)listen real close to some (G)good advise Mister
Keep a (C)ridin' them old broncos, if you're (G)still feelin' mean
But you'd (D)better keep clear of Sam's buckin' ma-(G)chine (C) (D) (G)
