A Cowboy's Special Christmas
Recorded by Red Steagall
Written by Dan Roberts, Roy Robinson, Bobby Wood

C Dm
Sittin’ in the bunkhouse feelin’ sorry for myself
F D7 G7
Christmas Eve can be a lonely time
F G7
I started thinkin’ about Jim’s widowed wife
C A7
And those kids without their dad tonight
D7 G7
He worked this ranch was a real good friend of mine

C Dm
Three weeks growth on my jaw an old red faded mackinaw
F D7 G7
I hitched a team and I went to cut a tree
F G7
I don’t know if it was all the snow
Or because I had a place to go
D7 G7 C
I started feelin’ kinda Christmas Eve

Grabbed some can goods from the store
C Em
Left an IOU on Cookies door
F C G7 Am C
Unwrapped the lines and I drove the team away
F G7
The harness bells rang out for miles
They ran out on their porch all smiles
D7 G7 C
Said I looked like Santa on his sleigh

We read the Christmas story from the bible and we sang
F D7 G7
The kids took turns sittin’ on my knee
F G7
We made paper chains and popcorn strings
Heard the coyotes caroling
D7 G7 C
While mom crocheted a star to top the tree

F Em
For the little girl a rope knot doll I fashioned on the fly
F G7 Am C
My pocket knife I wrapped up for the boy
F G7
I gave their mom a Christmas poem

And they gave me a Christmas horn
D7 G7 C G7
That filled this cowboy’s empty heart with joy

C Dm
And to think I nearly spent this night all wrapped up in myself
F D7 G7
While headed home I felt a teardrop fall
F G7
I took off my hat in the cold night air
Em Am F A7
Offered up a simple cowboy prayer
D7 G7 C
And thanked God for the greatest gift of all

Repeat #2
