The Strand Recorded by The Statler Brothers Written by Lew DeWitt
G B7 C G To every silver cowboy who rode the silver screen C E7 A7 D7 Do you remember ridin' through the Strand G B7 C G And do you remember me I'm the front row kid C D7 G D7 Who galloped right behind you till the end
G B7 C G And saved your life so often by callin' out your name C E7 A7 D7 When it looked like Blackie had the upper hand G B7 C G We saved towns and ranches in spite of threats and rain C D7 G While staying safe and dry inside the Strand
B7 C G The Strand it was a fortress in the heart of town C E7 A7 D7 It's marquee proudly boasted out you name G B7 C G Sending out a message to young'uns all around C D7 G D7 And each and every Saturday we came
G B7 C G We came to watch our heroes ride the silver screen C E7 A7 D7 In hot pursuit of Blackie's outlaw band G B7 C G I wish that I could walk up to that ticket booth again C D7 G D7 And buy just one more ticket to the Strand
G B7 C G But our town is changing and it seems we need C E7 A7 D7 A parking lot to help our town expand G B7 C G Today I learned a lesson like you I must be brave C D7 G D7 Today I learned their tearing down the Strand
G B7 C G I wish that there was something fellow's we could do C E7 A7 D7 One more effort before we disband G B7 C G We've saved those towns and ranches and now before we're through C D7 G Seems we ought to try to save the Strand
B7 C G But they say it's over and I guess it's true C E7 A7 D7 They'll park their cars where horses used to stand G B7 C G I'll try to use the courage that I learned from you C D7 G D7 Every time I think about the Strand
G B7 C G And If I could live life over there's much that I would change C E7 A7 D7 And possibly I'd be a different man G B7 C G I'd follow many different trails but one would stay the same C D7 G And that's the one that led me to the Strand
C D7 G That happy trail that led me to the Strand
