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
