Bandy The Rodeo Clown    (1975)

Who was once a bull-hooking son-of-a-gun
Now who keeps a pint hid out behind chute number one
Who was ridin' high till a pretty girl rode him to the ground
Any kid knows where to find me, I'm Bandy the rodeo clown

In the ridin' and the ropin' I was closin' in on number one
Now in dreams at night I ride on that silver saddle I never won
Since she left me, the whiskey takes me to the rodeo grounds
Where the cowboys think I'm handy, I'm Bandy the rodeo clown.

I could ride em all
The bulls and the broncs knew I was boss
But the ride that woman took me on broke a whole lot more
Than this old cowboy's bones.

While the tears on my makeup melts my painted smile into a frown
The crowd thinks I'm a dandy, I'm Bandy the rodeo clown

And I could ride em all
The bulls and the broncs knew I was boss
But the ride that woman took me on broke a whole lot more
Than this old cowboy's bones.

While the tears on my makeup melts my painted smile into a frown
The crowd thinks I'm a dandy, I'm Bandy the rodeo clown

The crowd thinks I'm a dandy, I'm Bandy the rodeo clown
