Strawberry Roan  Chris LeDoux

Strawberry Roan
By Chris Ledoux
rmofle at
After the first verse, you can drop the Dm and Dm7 in the other verses
Let me [C]tell you a tale and a [G]good one I own
Of an [Dm]old cab[Dm7]allo, a strawberry [C]roan
I was [C]hangin' round [C7]town just a [F]spendin' my time
[G]Out of a job and not earnin'[C] a dime
When a [C]stranger steps up[G] and he says "I suppose
[Dm]You're a [Dm7]bronc rider by the [C]looks of your clothes."
I [C]says, "Guess your [C7]right, there's [F]none I can't tame
If its [G]ridin' wild ponies that my middle [C]name."
[C]Oh that strawberry roan
[F]Oh that strawberry [C]roan
He [F]says he's a cayuse that's [C]never been rode
The [F]guy that gets on him is [C]bound to get throwed
Throwed [G]off that strawberry [C]roan
Out in the horse corral standin' alone
Is an old caballo, a strawberry roan
Spavined old legs and small pigeon toes
Pair of pig eyes and a long Roman nose
Little pin ears and they're split at the tip
A big fourty four brand was on his left hip
So I puts on my spurs and I coils up my twine
Says to that stranger that ten spot is mine
Chorus 2:
Oh that strawberry roan
Oh that strawberry roan
I'll break him to saddle or break him my own
I'll ride him until he lies down with a grown
Bring on your strawberry roan
Then I puts on my blinds and it sure is a fight
Next comes the saddle - I screws her down tight
Steps up aboard him and rises the blind
Get out the way boys - he's gonna unwind
Shore is a broad walker he heaves a big sigh
He only lacks wings for to be on the fly
He's the worse buckin' bronco I've seen on the range
Turn on a nickle and give you some change
Chorus 3:
Oh that strawberry roan
Oh that strawberry roan
That sunfishin' critter's worth leavin' alone
There's nary a buster from Texas to Nome
Can ride that strawberry roan
Can ride that strawberry roan
