Ride Cowboy Ride  Marty Robbins

Verse)
[F]Ride, cowboy, ride
[C]Don't ride too slow
[G]Tucson's a mighty long w[C]ay yet to go
[C]He started his long ride in P[Dm]rescott
[C]The sun was a hundred or m[Dm]ore
[C]On down he rode at full g[Dm]allop
[C]Into the [G]flat desert f[C]loor
[C]Driving the big herd to F[Dm]lagstaff
[C]In Prescott the letter was t[Dm]here
[C]Happiness soon would be s[Dm]orrow
[C]Sad news the l[G]etter did b[C]ear
[F]Ride, cowboy, ride
[C]Don't go too slow
[G]Ride, cowboy, ride
You've a [C]long way to go
[C]Your darlin' now lies on her d[Dm]eathbed
[C]Racked by fever and p[Dm]ain
[C]Reaching for you at her b[Dm]edside
[C]At each breath she's c[G]allin' your n[C]ame
[C]Forward he leaned in the s[Dm]addle
[C]Pushing through mesquite and s[Dm]age
[C]His head never raised for a g[Dm]reeting
[C]As he passed the W[G]ickenburg s[C]tage
[F]Ride, cowboy, ride
[C]Don't ride too slow
[G]Tucson's a mighty long w[C]ay yet to go
[C]In Phoenix he traded h[Dm]orses
[C]Now on the back of this r[Dm]oan
[C]He could see visions of T[Dm]ucson
[C]His darlin' and t[G]heir lovely h[C]ome
[F]Ride, cowboy, ride
[C]Don't ride too slow
[G]There's still a hundred and t[C]wenty to go
[C]In through the ranch gate he g[Dm]alloped
[C]And without breaking his s[Dm]tride
[C]He bounded out of the s[Dm]addle
[C]And rushed to his s[G]weet darlin's si[C]de
[C]Then as the dyin' girl s[Dm]aw him
[C]A smile came over her f[Dm]ace
[C]Holding her hand as it t[Dm]ightened
[C]Barely had [G]he won the [C]race
[F]Ride, cowboy, ride
[C]On through the blue
[G]Ride, cowboy, ride
She'll be [C]waiting for you
[F]Ride, cowboy, ride
[C]On through the blue
[G]Ride, cowboy, ride
She'll be [C]waiting f[F]or y[C]ou
