Long And Lonesome Ride To Dalhart
Recorded by Red Steagall
Written by Michael Martin Murphey

C
There was snow on the Spanish peaks that morning
F
Summertime was coming to an end
G7
I took a long lonesome ride to Dalhart
C
To try to say goodbye to my old friend


He was happy drawing wages as a cowboy
F
He lighted up my campfire with his songs
G7
He took a long lonesome ride to Dalhart
C
When the grass turned brown and fall was coming on

F
Oh that long and lonesome ride to Dalhart
G7
But it’s time to bring the summer cattle down

Board up the shack blow out the candle

Get on down to the panhandle
F G7 C
When it’s time for getting down to winter ground


I took a long lonesome ride to Dalhart
F
Thought about the way he lost his life
G7
Working over in a Kansas feed lot
C
Left behind three children and a wife


No one knows exactly how it happened
F
He was all alone when his saddle horse went down
G7
He took a long lonesome ride to Dalhart
C
When his partner brought him back to winter ground

Repeat #3


I took a long lonesome ride to Dalhart
F
There were hundreds at the church when I got there
G7
Six cowboys in long black coats and black hats
C
Walking slowly as the fiddler played an air


The preacher said this young man just changed horses
F
Now he rides a white horse for the Lord
G7
He took a long and lonesome ride to Dalhart
C
Kept on riding till he crossed the Jordan forge

Repeat #3 x2


I took the long lonesome ride to Dalhart
