The Gosh Darn Wheel
Written and recorded by Johnny Horton

C
Well it was down at Old Ranch Eagle where I first ran across
Am
That strange two wheel contraception that upset me in the dust
C Am C
Simply got up and throwed me romped around upon my head
G7 C
Shot straight up in lightning order so Ike the ranch boss said


T'was a tenderfoot who rode it those wheelings so they say
Am
For his help from New York City out to San Francisco Bay
C Am C
He stopped by the ranch house to get himself a good square meal
G7 C
Never dreamt us boys would monkey with his gosh darn wheel


Started in with Arizona when he says to Ike McGill
Am
I guess you found a limit to your bronco riding skill
C Am C
He said ol' boy but you will find a different deal
G7 C
When you throw your chaparritas around that gosh darn wheel


Well when he slurs upon my talent makes me madder than a mink
Am
So I told him I would ride him for amusement of the chink
C Am C
I said if you don't believe me just to get her by the snout
G7 C
Put a rope around her muzzle and to lead the critter out


Well I done as I requested and I gave the word to go
Am
I pushed the gas to start her and she wasn't very slow
C Am C
The grade was kinda sloping from the ranch house to the creek
G7 C
And I went-a tearing through there like a crazy lightning streak


All the boys they went to hollering stay with her uncle Bill
Am
Put your spurs in her shoulder turn her muzzle up the hill
C Am C
Well I done as they requested but my plan it wouldn't work
G7 C
When my spurs went in it's shoulders my face went in the dirt


Well the next that I remember I was lying on the ground
Am
Out in front of Old Ranch Eagle with my comrades gathered around
C Am C
They were putting peach tree poultices on my hide where it was ripped
G7 C
Some of the boys said Arizona you must have gotten whipped


Well I can take the wildest bronco from the wild and woolly west
Am
I can rope him I can ride him let him do his level best
C Am C
I can ride the toughest steer that ever wore a Texas brand
G7 C
And in any disagreement I can play a leading hand
