Stewball

	  Capo 6th Fret 
D 
Old Stewball was a race horse,  
     Bm           Em 
And I wish he were mine.  
                A 
He never drank water,  
                D G  A 
He always drank wine.  
  
                D   
His bridle was silver,  
    Bm         Em 
His mane it was gold.  
                     A 
And the worth of his saddle,  
               D G  A  
Has never been told.  
  
                         D 
Oh, the fairgrounds were crowded  
    Bm           Em 
And Stewball was there.  
                    A 
But the betting was heavy,  
                   D G   A 
On the bay and the mare.  
  
            D 
And away up yonder 
 Bm           Em 
Ahead of them all 
                      A 
Came a-prancin’ and a-dancin’               
             D G  A 
My noble Stewball 


             D 
I bet on the gray mare,  
      Bm         Em 
And I bet on the bay.  
                  A 
If I'd bet on old Stewball,  
                  D G    A 
I'd be a free man today.  
  
                      D 
Oh, the hoot owl, she holler 
       Bm          Em 
And the turtledove moan.  
                  A 
I'm a poor boy in trouble,  
                D  G   A   
A long way from home. 
Repeat 1st verse.
