The Indian Cowboy (Clark Guy)

If you ever go out to the circus Where the Wallendas walk on the wire I'll tell you a tale to remember When the white horses leap rings of fire It was a cold night in Oklahoma The show was about to begin The animals they were all restless When the star horse she broke from her pen She was a mare of high spirit Just like a whore on Saturday night She's kickin' and buckin' past the men who were brushin' The elephants lyin' on their sides Next to the tent sat some lanterns They were dangerously close to the hay That mare headed straight for those lanterns Some fool had put there by mistake Then up stepped some Indian Cowboy His lasso went whirlin' throught the air In the full dead middle of danger He roped that runaway mare Then the elephants raised up their trumpets Two of them broke from their chains Stampeded that Indian Cowboy Who had saved the big top from flames So if you ever go out to the circus Where the Wallendas walk on the wire You just remember that Indian Cowboy When the white horses leap rings of fire
