National Finals Rodeo  Chris LeDoux

"National Finals Rodeo by Chris Ledoux
Chris Ledoux
Its on the Rodeo songs old and new album
[Bb]A rodeo's just a rodeo after ri[D]ding several years
[F] [D] [F] [Bb] 
But let me tell you about one that will c[D]hill your very soul
It h[F]appens in De[D]cember when it's s[F]nowin' and it's [Bb]cold
In Oklahoma City there's a bu[D]ilding of concrete
It's wh[F]ere the toughest st[D]ock and men will [F]gather and [Bb]compete
The points have all been tallied and the s[D]tock has all been brought
We've g[F]ot just two more ho[D]urs cause it [F]starts at eight o'c[Bb]lock
It's the F[D]inals the NFR the Series of the[Bb] sport
Hey ro[D]okie can you take ten head have you got the [Cm]heart
You th[D]ink you're a tough cowboy we'll find out in the [Bb]end
When that final whi[F]stle blows and the st[D]ock's all in the [Bb]pen
T[Bb]he coliseum's quiet ex[D]cept for the sounds
Of co[F]wboys getting r[D]eady and the wo[F]rkmen of the g[Bb]rounds
The cowboys ask each other, w[D]hat each other's got
Did y[F]ou draw ol' Ne[D]cklace or p[F]luck old Double-[Bb]Ought
The tension now is mounting as the cr[D]owd starts pouring in
A sh[F]iver goes all thr[D]ough me like [F]from a cold cold [Bb]wind
I hear the horses comin' ru[D]nnin' down the alleyway
They're sn[F]ortin' and a bl[D]owin' as men s[F]hut the sliding [Bb]gates
(Repeat The Chorus)
[Bb]We had too much time a while ago but [D]not enough time now
The An[F]them is now o[D]ver the g[F]rand entry's going [Bb]out
I sit there on my bronc I'm r[D]eady and I wait
I he[F]ar a chute gate o[D]pen so I [F]look out through the [Bb]gate
A horse comes boiling out and b[D]lows up at the roof
And th[F]en there comes a[D]nother kicking [F]like a curly[Bb] wolf
I hear the chute boss holler thr[D]ough the yelling of the crowd
He s[F]ays there's one ah[D]ead of you so [F]you'd better get screwed [Bb]down
(Repeat The Chorus)
[Bb]I nod my head, I'm in a daze the ho[D]rse goes boiling out
I r[F]un my spurrs into [D]his neck and [F]then I drag 'em [Bb]out
My mind is in a blur my ey[D]es are seeing red
The fl[F]ank catch slams in[D]to my back, his [F]rump bangs on my [Bb]head
My ha[F]nd's jerked from the ri[D]ggin and I [F]crash into the [Bb]ground
I stumble to my feet as I sta[D]gger to the wall
I w[F]onder to my[D]self is it [F]really worth it[Bb] all
(Repeat Chorus)
(Repeat Chorus & Fade)
