Utah Carol
Recorded by Marty Robbins

C F C
And now my friends you've asked me what makes me sad and still
G7 C
And why my brow is darkened like the clouds upon the hill
F C F C
Run in your ponies closer and I'll tell to you my tale
G7 C
Of Utah Carol my partner and his last ride on the trail

F C
We rode the range together and rode it side by side
G7 C
I loved him like a brother and I wept when Utah died
F C F C
We were rounding up one morning when work was almost done
G7 C
When on his side the cattle started on a frightened run

F C
Underneath the saddle that the boss's daughter rode
G7 C
Utah that very morning had placed a bright red robe
F C F C
So the saddle might ride easy for Lenore his little friend
G7 C
And it was this red blanket that brought him to his end

F C
The blanket was now dragging behind her on the ground
G7 C
The frightened cattle saw it and charged it with a bound
F C F C
Lenore then saw her danger and turned her pony's face
G7 C
And leaning in the saddle tied the blanket to its place

F C
But in leaning lost her balance fell in front of that wild tide
G7 C
Lay still Lenore I'm coming were the words that Utah cried
F C F C
His faithful pony saw her and reached her with a bound
G7 C
I thought he'd been successful and raised her from the ground

F C
But the weight upon the saddle had not been felt before
G7 C
His back cinch snapped like thunder and he fell by Lenore
F C F C
Picking up the blanket he swung it over his head
G7 C
And started cross the prairie lay still Lenore he said

F C
When he got the stampede turned and saved Lenore his friend
G7 C
Then turned to face the cattle and meet his fatal end
F C F C
His six gun flashed like lightning the report rang loud and clear
G7 C
As the cattle rushed and killed him he dropped the leading steer

F C
On his funeral morning I heard the preacher say
G7 C
I hope we'll all meet Utah at the roundup far away
F C F C
Then they wrapped him in a blanket that saved his little friend
G7 C
And it was this red blanket that brought him to his end
