Caballo Diablo  Chris Ledoux

[Am]Wild as a coastal bar[G]ranca, [F]swift as the wind blowinâ[E] free
With [Am]two eyes like fire brands that [G]glow in the night
Somewhere [F]up there heâs waitinâ fo[E]r me
And [Am]he knows that Iâm cominÃ[G]¢ for him, And[F] I just canât rest Îti[E]l I find
That [Am]raven black stallion that [G]wears no manâs brand
with a [F]wild restless spirit like [E]mine
[Am]They call him Caballo Di[G]ablo, half horse half devil they [Am]say
[Am]Caballo Diablo, the [G]outlaw up a [F]top the Si[G]erra Mad[Am]re
[Am]Two men before tried to [G]take him, [F]they had their chance one by [E]one
But [Am]each met his fate when those f[G]lashinâ black hooves
brought [F]death ÎNeath the Mexican[E] sun
[Am]Still I canât leave, I must[G] find him,  You[F] fool of a horse canât yo[E]u
  [Am]                          [G]  [F]I may be half man, but th[E]e other halfâs devil, And youâre just exactly
like me
[Am]Even the breeze has stopped [G]movinâ all[F] hush now, be [E]still,
[Am]Donât make a sound stay [G]close to the ground
ÎCuz heâs[F] waitinâ just over th[E]at hill
[Am]Down wind behind him move q[G]uickly, do it [F]fast now, heâs startinâ t[E]o stir
Grab a [Am]handful of mane, then [G]up on to his back,
And [F]start rakinâ him down with my [E]spurs
But [Am]try as he will he canât [G]shake me as [F]over the precipice we[E] go
To [Am]shed the life blood of a [G]horse and a man on the [F]rocky sierra be[E]low
