Doubletree  Jeffrey Foucault

The sno[Em]w falls on the passes
And it covers up the rails
And the h[D]ired men ride up to make them [Em]clean
It's a [Em]winter camp and a frozen damp
And a shovel in your hand
And a [D]coal train comes rumbling through the [Em]seam
That [Am]morning came up shining
Clear and [G]sharp as broken glass
We were r[D]iding for the tracks at [Em]Sugaree
All ho[Am]ller and high spirit
And the [G]devil take the last
And [D]Henry lay a wager then to[Em] me
He s[Em]aid "I've got five dollars
And a whiskey at the bar
S[D]ays I make the tracks ahead of y[Em]ou"
So we t[Em]ouched our horses up
Sent them running down the hill
And I [D]did something I never meant to [Em]do
( Tab from: )
Well[Am] I cut hard behind him
From his [Em]blind side I come around
[D]Just as we were going down the s[Em]cree
I o[Am]nly meant to scare him but he tumbled to the gro[Em]und
And he b[D]roke his neck beneath the [Em]doubletree
So you [G]take him cut him out in a [D]length of [Em]pine
[G]Lay him out in a suit of cl[D]othes
[G]Best that you can [C]find
[G]Lay his body [D]gentle in the [Em]ground
And [C]say a prayer for [D]Henry
Bef[G]ore you lay him d[Em]own
The n[Em]ight before poor Henry died
We slept on open ground
The c[D]ircus of the stars a blaze of [Em]white
[Em]Henry was the best friend that I ever had
And I [G]slept still as a child [D] that ni[Em]ght
