When The Rooster Leaves The Yard
Recorded by Lefty Frizzell
Written by Eddie Pleasant and A.C. Solberg

C C7 F
I took a job away from home to make my income grow
G7 C
Cause my baby wouldn’t go with me I thought I’d take it slow
C7 F
I waited for her mood to change I wrote till I got tired
G7 C
Now I’m wondering what goes on when the rooster leaves the yard

F C
A rooster is the king on his yard he sets the pace
D7 G7
I’d go back and run mine but I’m afraid I’ve been replaced
C C7 F
My baby writes to me but her words are cold and hard
G7 C
Now I’m wondering what goes on when the rooster leaves the yard

C7 F
I do my job and should I say I do it half way right
G7 C
My mind is on my baby and where she goes every night
C7 F
She used to own me there my roostering she got tired
G7 C
Now I’m wondering what goes on when the rooster leaves the yard

Repeat #2 The rooster…

G7 C
Yes I’m wondering what goes on when the rooster leaves the yard
