CLAUDE DALLAS Written By: Tom Russell, Ian Tyson Recorded By: Tom Russell/Ian Tyson I got this tab from Barry P. Foley Milos
(Dm)……..Am)In a land the Spanish once had, called the (G)Northern Mystery Where rivers (D)run and disappear and the (F)Mustang still lives free By the (Am)Devil's wash and the coyote hole in the (G) wild Owyee Range (D)Somewhere in the sage tonight, the (F)wind calls out his name Aye Aye (Am)Aye
(Am)Come gather round me buckaroos and the (G)story I will tell
The (E)fugitive Claude Dallas, who (Am)just broke out of jail You might think this tale is history, from (G)before the West was won But the (E)events that I'll describe took place in (Am)1981
He was born out in Virginia, left home when school was through In the deserts of Nevada, he became a buckaroo He learned the ways of cattle, he learned to sit a horse He always packed a pistol and he practiced deadly force
Then (C)Claude he became a trapper, he (G)dreamt of the bygone days He studied bobcat logic, in the wild and silent ways In the bloody runs near paradise, in the monitors down south Trapping cats and coytes, living hand and mouth Aye Aye Aye
