Little Joe The Wrangler Recorded by Marty Robbins Written by Howard Thorpe
C F C Little Joe the wrangler will wrangle nevermore G7 His days with the roundup they are o'er C F C Was a year ago last April when he rode into our camp G7 C Just a little Texas stray and nothing more
F C Was late in the evening when he rode into our camp G7 On a little Texas pony he called Chaw C F C With his brogan shoes and overalls a tougher looking kid G7 C You never in your life before had saw
F C His saddle was a Texas 'kack built many years ago G7 An O.K. spur on one foot lightly swung C F C With his pack rolled in a cotton sack so loosely tied behind G7 C And a canteen from his saddle horn was slung
F C He said he had to leave his home his pa had married twice G7 His new ma whipped him every day or two C F C So he saddled up old Chaw one night and lit a shuck this way G7 C He said he'd try to paddle his own canoe
F C He'd said if we would give him work he'd do the best he could G7 Though he didn't know straight up about a cow C F C So the boss he cut him out a mount and kindly put him on G7 C He sorta liked this little kid somehow
F C He learned to wrangle horses and learned to know them all G7 And get them in at daybreak if he could C F C And to trail the old chuck wagon and always hitch the team G7 C And help the cookie evenings rustle wood
F C We had hardly reached the Pecos the weather it was fine G7 We were camped down on the south side in a draw C F C When a northern commenced blowing and we doubled up our guard G7 C It took everyone of us to hold them in
F C Little Joe the wrangler was called out with the rest G7 Scarcely had the little fellow reached the herd C F C When the cattle they stampeded like a hail storm on they fled G7 C And everyone was riding for the lead
F C Amid the streaks of lightning there was one horse up ahead G7 He was trying to catch the leaders in their speed C F C It was Little Joe the wrangler with a slicker o'er his head G7 C He was riding old Blue Rocket in the lead
F C At last we got them milling and kinda quieted down G7 And the extra guards back to the wagon went C F C But there was one a-missing you could see it at a glance G7 C Was our little Texas stray poor wrangler Joe
F C Next morning just at daybreak we found where Rocket fell G7 Down in a washout twenty feet below C F C Beneath his horse his life was gone his spur had rung its knell G7 C Was our little Texas stray poor wrangler Joe
