Dawson Legate
Written and recorded by Red Steagall

C F G7
He hung his old saddle up high in the barn
C F G7
He's made her a promise his cowboyin’ is done
C F G7
Said I've won them big buckles done all I can do
F G7 C
Now I'm ready to spend my last years here with you

F G7 F C
Said we'll break out them flat lands ain't been plowed for years
F C G7
We'll plant wheat and white oats they'll do well up here
F G7 F C
And I'll buy us some baldies to run in the hills
F G7 C
And I'll break out some bad ones to help pay the bills

F C
Cause the winters get long up Alberta way
G7
Clouds get so dark at times there's no light of day
C F G7
And the long nights get lonely and cold while she waits
F G7 C
As she dreams of her cowboy named Dawson Legate

F G7
Well he made it alright till the harvest was done
C F G7
His feet started itchin’ he wanted to run
C F G7
He quietly entered the Calgary Stampede
F G7 C
And the first that he took just put wings on his feet

F G7 F C
And she cried when he showed her the money he'd won
F C G7
She knew at the first light of day he'd be gone
F G7 F C
But he promised he'd quit when the season was through
F G7 C
He'd be home to plant wheat fore winter winds blew

Repeat #3

F G7
Well summer went fast he was ridin' em all
C F G7
He placed high at Cheyenne a first at Sioux Falls
C F G7
He was sendin' home money his intentions were good
F G7 C
But then life for a cowboy don't go like it should

F G7 F C
Cause he drawed him a bad one at Frisco that fall
F C G7
A mean one to ride was a chute fightin' hoss
F G7 F C
The first jump he stumbled fell and he rolled
F G7 C
His neck snapped like straw Dawson's body grew cold

F C
Now the bad weeds have taken the flat lands again
F C
As a few strands of wire where fences had been
F G7
And the baldies are starvin’ in the hills where they graze
F G7 C
While she's rockin' the first son of Dawson Legate
