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
