Moe Bandy - "Bandy, The Rodeo Clown"

Bandy, The Rodeo Clown

Written by: Lefty Frizzell & Sanger D. Shafer

[G]Who was once a bull hooking son of a [Am] gun
Now [D] who keeps a pint hid out behind chute number [G]one
Who was ridin high till a pretty girl rode him to the [Am]ground
Any [D]kid knows where to find me I'm Bandy the rodeo [G]clown

[G]In the ridin and the ropin I was closin in on number [Am]on
Now in [D]dreams at night I ride on that silver saddle I never
[G]won. Since she left me the whiskey takes me to the rodeo
[Am]grounds, Where the [D]cowboys think I'm handy I'm Bandy the
rodeo [G]clown.


[C]I could ride em all
[D]The bulls and the broncs knew I was [G]boss
But the [A7]ride that woman took me on broke a whole lot more
Than this old cowboy's [D]bones.

While the [G] tears on my makeup melts my painted smile into a
[Am] frown. The [D] crowd thinks I'm a dandy I'm Bandy the rodeo
[G] clown

(Repeat chorus and last verse to end)
