[Verse 1]
F
I was ridin' down the trail from Santa-Fe
F7
When I met a pretty gal along the way
        Bb
I said "Ain't we met before"
F
Then she drew her forty-four
C                       C7         F
So I tipped my hat and slowly rode away


[Verse 2]
F
I was ridin' down the trail from Santa Fe
F7
When I met another gal along the way
Bb
I said, "Baby, you're a dream
F
She said, "Touch me and I'll scream"
C                       C7         F
So I tipped my hat and slowly rode away


[Bridge]
Gm   Bbm   F
Rode away, rode away
Bb                                        F
'Cause there was just no excuse for me to stay
Bb                      F
Tipped my hat, that was that
               Gm                       C
So I kept that kitten sitting where she sat


[Verse 3]
F
I continued down the road to Santa Fe

She said "Partner I'll take you"
C                       C7             F

Bb            F
Settled down, settled down
Bb                                 F
How I curse the day I ever rode to town
Bb                     F
What a lie, oh, what a lie
     Dm                            C
Ever since the day I took myself a wife

[Verse 7]
F
If you ever ride the trail to Santa-Fe
F7
And you meet a pretty gal along the way
Bb
There just stop and think of me
F
I was happy, I was free
C                        C7          F
When I tipped my hat and slowly rode away!
