Rodeo | Garth Brooks


<< Go Back

This is a great song from Garth Brooks. We play this song in the key of “Em”, and the guitar chart and lyric sheet we use for open mic night and live performances are available below for your reference. If you prefer to use different guitar tabs or chord charts, we can accomodate any variations.


Verse 1
  Em                       Em
His eyes are cold and restless
     A                     Em
His wounds have almost healed
       A                 Em
And she'd give half of Texas
              A             Em
Just to change the way he feels
Em
She knows his love's in Tulsa
         A
And she knows he's gonna go
           Em
Well it ain't no woman flesh and blood
B
It's that damned old rodeo

Chorus
        Em             
Well it's bulls and blood
      Em
It's dust and mud
                 A          Em
It's the roar of a Sunday crowd
      Em 
It's the white in his knuckles
       Em
The gold in the buckle
          B              A                     
He'll win the next go 'round
Em
It's boots and chaps
Em
It's cowboy hats
       A           Em
It's spurs and latigo
Em
It's the ropes and the reins
Em
And the joy and the pain
                B          Em
And they call the thing rodeo


Verse 2
  Em
She does her best to hold him
A                       Em
When his love comes to call
      A                      Em
But his need for it controls him
     A                      Em
And her back's against the wall
  Em                                      
And it's So long girl I'll see you
                  A
When it's time for him to go
Em
You know the woman wants her cowboy
            B       Em
Like he wants his rodeo

Chorus

Verse 3
        Em
It'll drive a cowboy crazy
        A              Em
It'll drive the man insane
        A                         Em
And he'll sell off everything he owns
        A                Em
Just to pay to play the game
     Em                         Em
And a broken home and some broken bones
A///////
Is all he'll have to show
 Em
For all the years that he spent chasin'
    B                   Em
This dream they call rodeo


Chorus 
      

Ending 
It's the broncs and the blood
It's the steers and the mud
And they call the thing rodeo
