Patanio The Pride Of The Plains Recorded by Billy Walker Written by Harry C. McAuliffe and Bobby Gregory [3/4 time]
C G7 C You look at the picture with a wondering eye G7 C And then at the arrow that's hanging close by F C Say tell a story as there's one I know G7 C Of a horse I once owned down in New Mexico
G7 C He was swift as an antelope and black as a crow G7 C With a star on his forehead as white as the snow F C His arched neck was hidden by a long flowing mane G7 C And they called him Patanio the pride of the plains
G7 C The country was new then the settlers were scarce G7 C The Indians on the warpath were savage and fierce F C Scouts were sent out everyday from the post G7 C But they never came back so we knew they were lost G7 C One day the Captain said someone must go G7 C For help to the border of New Mexico F C A dozen brave fellows straight way answered here G7 C But the Captain he spied me and said son come here
G7 C Patanio beside me his nose in my hand G7 C Said the captain your horse is the best in the land F C You're good for this ride you're the lightest man here G7 C On the back of that mustang you've nothing to fear
G7 C I'm proud of my horse sir I answered you know G7 C Patanio and I are both willing to go F C They all shook my hand as I mounted the black G7 C Patanio sped forward and I gave him his slack
G7 C For eighty long miles over the plains we must go G7 C For help to the border of New Mexico F C The black struck a trot and he kept it all night G7 C Till just as the east was beginning to light
G7 C When back from behind me there came a fierce yell G7 C We knew that the redskins were hot on our trail F C I rose up and jingled the bells on his rein G7 C And I stoked his neck softly and I called him by name
G7 C He answered my touch with a toss of his head G7 C And his black body lengthened as onward he sped F C The arrows fell round me like showers of rain G7 C When in my left leg oh I felt a sharp pain
G7 C The red blood was flowing from Patanio's side G7 C But he never once shortened his powerful stride F C Patanio poor fellow I knew he was hurt G7 C But still he dashed onward and on to the fort
G7 C By good care Patanio and I were soon well G7 C Of his death long years after it hurts me to tell F C They write songs about him the cowboys still sing G7 C The legend lives on of his long flowing mane
G7 C So look at the arrow that hangs on the wall G7 C It was shot through my leg boot stirrup and all F C On many fine horses I've since drawn the reins G7 C But none like Patanio the pride of the plains
