Number 37  James Keelaghan

She wore [G]number 37, her horse was chestnut brown
I [C]saw her at a rodeo in a [D]high plains western town
Under[G]neath the turquoise sky a thunderstorm was rolling in
The [C]infield getting sticky, the [D]crowd was wearing thin
Now, I'm [Em]not for barrel racin[G]g, I cannot say I'd gone
To [C]see some woman ride flat out, as she [D]bounced and turned for home
And [Em]riding hell-for-[G]leather, the bit between her teeth
It's [C]poetry in [D]motion
She wore the [G]number 37, she was the seventh one to ride
She [C]showed no hint of nerves and she [D]sat her horse with pride
Horse and [G]rider leapt together, I wished that I could hear
The [C]words she spoke to spur him on as she [D]leaned down to his ear
They [Em]rounded the first [G]barrel, from the bleachers I could see
She [C]didn't use a riding crop, for the [D]horse ran like a breeze
'Round [Em]barrel two I [G]stammered, she closed the figure eight
When [C]up popped barrel three as she was [D]lingering, yeah
Heyyyy [D]hey [G]hey hey hey [C]hey I [G]hey I [D]hey I [C]heyyy
I know she [G]didn't use a riding crop, she barely used her spurs
[C]She used hands and knees, she used [D]gentle, loving words
I'd [G]like to say she won that day, that wouldn't be the fact
She [C]crossed the line in '69 in the [D]middle of the pack
You'd [Em]never know she'd [G]lost, she grinned from ear to ear
She [C]stroked the charger's neck and once more [D]whispered in his ear
She was [Em]happy that they'd [G]done that well, nobody got hurt
She got [C]all the speed she wanted using [D]gentle loving [G]words[D] [G]
Heyyyy hey hey [C]hey [G]I hey I [D]hey I [C]heyyy[G]
Heyyyy I [D]hey [G]I hey I [C]heyyy
Heyy I [G]hey I [D]hey I [C]heyyy
So hats off to [G]sweet 37, wherever you may be
The [C]pleasure's not from winning, it's in [D]riding wild and free
And [G]one thing that I won that day, you can whip and you can curse
But you'll [C]never ( ? ) and ride if you use [D]gentle loving [G]words
She wore number 37, her horse was chestnut brown
I [C]saw her at a rodeo in a [D]high plains western [G]town
(One - Two - Three)
Heyyyy [D]hey [G]hey hey hey [C]hey I [G]hey I [D]hey I [C]heyyy[G]
Heyyyy I [D]hey [G]I hey I [C]heyyy
Heyy I [G]hey I [D]hey I [C]heyyy [G]
