One Empty Cot In The Bunkhouse
Written and recorded by Red Steagall
[3/4 time]

C
There's one empty cot in the bunkhouse
C7 F
There's a saddle that nobody rides
C
One empty place at the table
G7
The remuda is five horses shy

C
We turned his string out to pasture
C7 F
He'll never ride em no more
C
We buried him out on the hillside last Sunday
G7 C
Another good cowboys gone home


He came on a train to west Texas
C7 F
From a farm back in east Tennessee
G7
And all of his life he just wanted to cowboy
C
He came west to fulfill his dream


He got his first job on the Sixes
C7 F
That was forty some odd years ago
G7
And in breaking the bad ones he’s the best that we’ve seen
C
One hell of a hand with a rope


I saw him just one time in service
C7 F
That’s the day that the boss lady died
G7
You could tell by the way he’d treat people and horses
C
He'd made his own deal with his God


Now there's one empty cot in the bunkhouse
C7 F
There's a saddle that nobody rides
C
One empty place at the table
G7 C
The remuda is five horses shy


He hated to fence and dig post holes
C7 F
He would if he's ask to of course
G7
Then he swore that there's nothing in life that's worth doing
C
If it can't be done from a horse


Then he taught me to top out the wild ones
C7 F
How to tell a good horse by his eye
G7
How to watch in the roundup when a cow’s on the price
C
She's hiding her baby nearby


Boys we ain't changed a thing in the bunkhouse
C7 F
We’re not ready to admit that he’s gone
C
His cot roll is laying across the foot of his bed
G7
His leggings still hang on the wall

C
But there's one empty cot in the bunkhouse
C7 F
There's a saddle that nobody rides
C
One empty place at the table
G7 C
The remuda is five horses shy
