Tex "Lansing" is winning quite a few events at the local rodeo, much to the chagrin of the leader of a gang who was hoping to win all the money himself. Tex's side kicks, Stubby and Pee Wee, are told to warn not to let Tex win the last event or Tex will be "pumped full of lead." Tex sings a song, wins all the events, and turns the sidekicks into nervous nellies (Pee Wee does a very convincing imitation of Judy Garland, in fact).

Tex, wandering the rodeo which has miraculously turned into a carnival, comes across a damsel in distress. Her brother, deep in gambling debt, has stolen twenty dollars and refuses to give it back. Tex saves the day and we are introduced to the stock love interest.

The story continues to wind itself around the horrors of counterfeit money, murder, and the acting abilities of Tex's love interest, "Gail Hawthorne" (Pee Wee, Tex's secondary love interest, gets a little "handsy" during a song and gets rejected. Oh the humanity!). As is usual with this kind of film you get sped up footage of horses running which adds considerably to the dramatic tensions:

Will Tex clear his name of murder? Will Tex make things right between Gail and her gambling brother Bob? Will Tex get the girl in the end? Will Tex finally figure out that Pee Wee has the hots for him?
