Utah Carol

	  
Capo 1 
 
 
 
D 
And now my friends you've asked me 
     G                D 
What makes me sad and still 
 
And why my brow is darkened 
          A7              D 
Like the clouds upon the hill 
G                    D 
Run in your ponies closer 
         G              D 
And I'll tell to you my tale 
 
Of Utah Carol my partner 
         A7               D 
And his last ride on the trail 
 
 
We rode the range together 
And rode it side by side 
I loved him like a brother, 
And I wept when Utah died 
We were rounding up one morning 
When work was almost done 
When on his side the cattle 
Started on a frightened run 
 
 
Underneath the saddle 
That the boss's daughter rode 
Utah that very morning 
Had placed a bright red robe 
So the saddle might ride easy 
For Lenore his little friend 
And it was this red blanket 
That brought him to his end 
 
 
The blanket was now dragging 
Behind her on the ground 
The frightened cattle saw it 
And charged it with a bound 
Lenore then saw her danger 
And turned her pony's face 
And leaning in the saddle 
Tied the blanket to its place 
 
 
But in leaning lost her balance, 
Fell in front of that wild tide 
"Lay still Lenore I'm coming" 
Were the words that Utah cried 
His faithful pony saw her 
And reached her in a bound 
I thought he'd been successful, 
And raised her from the ground 
 
 
But the weight upon the saddle 
Had not been felt before 
His backcinch snapped like thunder 
And he fell by Lenore 
Picking up the blanket 
He swung it over his head 
And started cross the prairie, 
"Lay still Lenore" he said 
 
 
When he got the stampede turned 
And saved Lenore his friend 
He turned to face the cattle 
And meet his fatal end 
His six gun flashed like lightning, 
The report rang loud and clear 
As the cattle rushed and killed him 
He dropped the leading steer 
 
 
On his funeral morning 
I heard the preacher say 
I hope we'll all meet Utah 
At the roundup far away 
Then they wrapped him in a blanket 
That saved his little friend 
And it was this red blanket 
That brought him to his end
