Strawberry Roan
Recorded by Marty Robbins
Written by Curley Flectcher, Fred Howard, Nat Vincent
[3/4 time]

C G7
I was hanging around town just spending my time
C
Out of a job not earning a dime
F
A feller steps up and he said I suppose
G7 C
You're a bronc fighter from looks of your clothes
G7
You figures me right I'm a good one I claim
C
Do you happen to have any bad ones to tame
F
Said he's got one a bad one to buck
G7 C
At throwing good riders he's had lots of luck

G7
I gets all het up and I ask what he pays
C
To ride this old nag for a couple of days
F
He offered me ten I said I'm your man
G7 C
A bronc never lived that I couldn't fan
G7
He said get your saddle I'll give you a chance
C
In his buckboard we hopped and he drives to the ranch
F
I stayed till morning and right after chuck
G7 C
I stepped out to see if this outlaw can buck

G7
Down in the horse corral standing alone
C
Is an old Caballo a Strawberry Roan
F
His legs are all spavined he's got pigeon toes
G7 C
Little pig eyes and a big Roman nose
G7
Little pin ears that touched at the tip
C
A big 44 brand was on his left hip
F
U-necked and old with a long lower jaw
G7 C
I could see with one eye he's a regular outlaw

G7
I gets the blinds on 'im and it sure is a fright
C
Next comes the saddle and I screws it down tight
F
Then I steps on 'im and I raises the blinds
G7 C
Get outta the way boys he's gonna unwind
G7
He sure is a broad walker he heaves a big sigh
C
He only likes wings for to be on the fly
F
He turns his old belly right up to the sun
G7 C
He sure is a sun-fishing son-of-a-gun

G7
He's about the worst bucker I've seen on the range
C
He'll turn on a nickel and give you some change
F
He hits on all fours and goes up on high
G7 C
Leaves me a spinning up there in the sky
G7
I turns over twice and I comes back to earth
C
I lights in a cussing the day of his birth
F
I know there are ponies that I cannot ride
G7 C
There's some of them left they haven't all died

G7
I'll bet all my money the man ain't alive

That'll stay with Old Strawberry
C
When he makes his high dive
