Let your fiddle tell the story, Sgt. Joe
About the days when you traveled with the show
Tell em about Tulsa, and the Cheyenne Rodeo
Let your fiddle tell the story, Sgt. Joe

Tune the strings the way you did so long ago
Make em dance to the magic of the bow
And sing about the good times down in San Antonio
Let your fiddle tell the story, Sgt. Joe

Tell about the years out on the road
And the son you never really got to know
And the woman who decided there was better ways to go
Now the army is the only home you know

Have another drink of whiskey, Sgt. Joe
As your tremblin' fingers rosin up the bow
And try to play the tunes you played, back twenty years ago
In the days when you traveled with the show

And let your fiddle tell the story, Sgt. Joe
