We Danced On The Oregon Trail Recorded by Red Steagall Written by Red Steagall and Richard O'Brien
C F C We crossed the Plat River the wagons were full F G7 C Of women children and men F C We turned toward the west and the new life out there G7 C We'll not see Nebraska again
Dm G7 Am Then the days turned to weeks and the mud and the rain Dm E7 The oxen were tired of the grind Dm Am Stories of Indians death and disease E7 Am G7 Constantly worked on my mind
C F C Then a baby was born to the unsensitive girl G7 Am I smiled when I heard his first wail F G7 C D7 Then as Ben played his fiddle and Will played his harp C G7 C We danced on the Oregon trail
F C The weather was kind as we moved across the plains F G7 C Then fever struck our little band F C We buried the young Simpson girl and her child G7 C On a bluff where Fort Laramie stands
Dm G7 Am Fort Hall on the Snake was a wonderful sight Dm E7 We cheered as we hurried on in Dm Am The Cheyenne had trailed us the last several days E7 Am G7 We were glad to find shelter and friends
C F C They made us feel welcome we needed the rest G7 Am We feasted on Elk meat and Quail F G7 C D7 Then as Ben played his fiddle and Will played his harp C G7 C We danced on the Oregon trail
F C Then the Black Feet attacked us we lost several men F G7 C My Pa was the first one to fall F C I left him out there by the side of the trail G7 C Where the sage ends and the Coyotes call
Dm G7 Am We reached Fort Vancouver the seventh of May Dm E7 We traveled for most of the year Dm Am But Columbia Valley became our new home E7 Am G7 If only my poppa was here
C F C I married young Kathy back late in the fall G7 Am C They toasted with fine Irish Ale F G7 C D7 Then as Ben played his fiddle and Will played his harp C G7 Am We danced on the Oregon Trail C G7 C We danced at the end of the trail
