"The Tom Green County Fair" lyrics

The Tom Green County Fair

You know it's funny how certain things
Stick with you thru the years
Like how it fells to be ten years old at the county fair

Hotdog stand
When you're hungry hotdogs smell
So doggone grand
Hopping through the sawdust
Running with my brothers
Head to toe we're smiling
At the Tom Green county fair

Rodeo
Tom Green county fair's got one fine rodeo
The cowboys are the greatest
The clown he is so funny
You bust your britches laughing
At the Tom Green county fair

Well a Sunday at the fair can make a memory
More valuable than gold
Especially when you're ten years old

Ferris Wheel
Just like an airplane in the sky
That's how you feel
Look down and see the people
Wave your arms and holler
Everybody's grining
At the Tom Green county fair

Night time comes
Up there on the bandstand
We see Billy Swan
Everybody's clapping
Mum and Pop are dancing
Sawdust is a flying
At the Tom Green county fair

Well a Sunday at the fair can make a memory
More valuable than gold
Especially when you're ten years old

Time to go
The pickup truck it rattles down
The gravel road
And all of us kids sit backwards
Looking through the dustcloud
At the lights and the laughter
At the Tom Green county fair
