Lyrics and Chords


Gonna tell you a story that you won't believe
But I fell in love last Friday evenin'
With a girl I saw on a barroom T.V. screen
Well I was just gettin' ready to get my hat
When she caught my eye and I put it back
And I ordered myself a couple o' more shots and beers

/ E7 - / A7 - / B7 A7 E7 - /:

The night that 
{Refrain}
I fell in love with a Roller Derby Queen
Round and round, oh round and round
The meanest hunk o' woman that anybody ever seen
Down in the arena

/ G A / E7 - / G A B7 / - /

She was five foot six and two fifteen
A bleached-blonde mama with a streak of mean
She knew how to knuckle and she knew how to scuffle and fight
And the roller derby program said
That she was built like a 'frigerator with a head
Her fans call her "Tuffy" but all her buddies called her "Spike"

You know that
{Refrain}

Round and round, go round and round
Round and round, go round and round
Round and round

Well I could not help it but to fall in love
With this heavy-duty woman I been speakin' of
Things looked kind of bad until the day she skated into my life
Well she might be nasty, she might be fat
But I never met a person who would tell her that
She's my bleach-blonde bomber, my heavy handed Hackensack mama

You know that
{Refrain}

Round and round, go round and round 
Round and round, go round and round
Round and round
