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
