Last Guard Recorded by Red Steagall Written by Red Steagall and Richard O'Brien
C F G7 I like the last guard cause it's usually quite F C D7 G7 And I get to sleep the first half of the night C F G7 I smell the hot coffee it floats on the wind F C G7 C I roll me a smoke make the circle again
F C G7 C My guards nearly over the sky's turning gray F C D7 G7 And the morning starts to glow as the night turns to day F C G7 C And the cattle are sleeping it’s been a good night F C G7 C As I tend to the herd in the dawns golden light
F G7 Coyotes are howling the birds start to sing F C D7 G7 My relief's riding up I can hear his rowel tune C F G7 One little brown cow getting up on her feet F C G7 C Soon the whole herd will awake from its sleep
F C G7 C My guards nearly over the sky's turning gray F C D7 G7 And the morning stars glow as the night turns to day F C G7 C The cattle are sleeping it’s been a good night F C G7 C And I ride back to camp in the dawn's golden light
F G7 The roundup is over and soon we'll go home F C D7 G7 I'll sleep in the bunkhouse I'll be so alone C F G7 Cause I'll miss the wagon and all my parts F C G7 C And the bright morning stars I ride the last stars
Repeat #4 cause my guards…
F C G7 C The cattle are sleeping it’s been a good night F C G7 C And I ride back to camp in the dawn's golden light
