Capo 2

       D       A          D 
If you ever go out to the circus
          D                     A
Where the Wallendas walk on the wire
     D          D7        G
I'll tell you a tale to remember
         D            A             D
When the white horses leap rings of fire

It was a cold night in Oklahoma
The show was about to begin
The animals they were all restless
When the star horse she broke from her pen

Now she was a mare of high spirit
Just like a w***e on Saturday night
She's kickin' and buckin' past the men who was brushin'
The elephants lyin' on their sides

Next to the tent sat some lanterns
They 's were dangerously close to the hay
That mare headed straight for those lanterns
Some fool had put there by mistake

Oooh, then up stepped some Indian Cowboy
His lasso went whirlin' throught the air
And in the full dead middle of danger
Oh, he roped that runaway mare

And then the elephants raised up their trumpets
Two of them broke from their chains
Stampeded that Indian Cowboy
Who had saved the big top from flames

So if you ever go out to the circus
Where the Wallendas walk on the wire
You just remember that Indian Cowboy
When the white horses leap rings of fire
