Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies chain, turn the girl and roll away
Circle left
4 ladies roll away, circle left around that ring and go
Left allemande, weave the ring
I was ridin' high 'til that pretty girl rode me to the ground
Swing the girl and promenade
Any kid knows where to find me
I'm Bandy the rodeo clown


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway around the ring
Side pair do a right & left thru
Square thru go 4 hands, movin' round the ring, dosado
Do an eight chain 4
While the tears on my makeup melt my painted smile into a frown
Swing the girl and promenade
The crowd thinks I'm a dandy
I'm Bandy the rodeo clown


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

4 ladies chain across, turn and chain them back again
Ladies center back to back, boys promenade outside you go
All the way, dopaso
Turn the partner left, the corner right
Your partner by the left and promenade
Any kid knows where to find me
I'm Bandy the rodeo clown

Bandy The Rodeo Clown
 
 

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

Lyrics by Lefty Frizzell.
Recorded by Moe Bandy.
