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
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
