Chris Ledoux - Stampede guitar chord


(D) We made camp along Red (C) River

Watched the (G) cattle as they bedded (D) down

Back at the wagons, right after (C) supper

(G) Spread our bedrolls on the (D) ground

And me and (G) Willie, we took the (D) night guard

And the (G) sage never smelled so (D) sweet

The prairie (G) moon, was blazin' (D) silver

No chance to(C)night for a stam(D)pede

Way over yonder, off in the (C) distance

Towards the (G) mountains there in the (D) west

Did I see lightnin', did I hear (C) thunder

The mind is (G) weary, I could use some (D) rest

Then all at (G) once, the wind shifts dir(D)ections

The clouds roll (G) in behind the tumble(D)weeds

Those longhorn (G) cattle, are gettin' (D) restless

God help us (C) all, if they stam(D)pede

Smell the rain, hear the (C) thunder

The midnight (G) sky, turns black as (D) death

The lightnin' crashes, smell the (C) sulphur

It's rank and (G) strong, as Satan's (D) breath

The cattle (G) rise up, and go to (D) runnin'

I spur my (G) pony on and take the (D) lead

And across the (G) herd, I can hear Willie (D) yellin'

(C) Hey Stam(D)pede!

break: D//C//G//D repeat

Dust clouds (D) rise, as the (C) rain falls

They mix to(G)gether, turn the air to (D) mud

I feel the longhorns brush (C) against me

I can feel the (G) demons racing through my (D) blood

Then all at (G) once, my pony (D) stumbles

We hit the (G) ground, I rise up to my (D) knees

In a flash of (G) light, I can see the cattle (D) comin'

Lord I know I'm gonna (C) die in this stam(D)pede

Then I awake, and I look a(C)round me

I'm in my (G)bedroll and I'm layin' on the (D) ground

Over there's the wagon, and there's the (C) campfire

I was only (G) dreamin', what's that (D) sound?

And I feel the (G) earth tremble under(D)neath me

As the midnight (G) sky begins to (D) bleed

And from the (G) blackness I can hear Willie (D) yellin'

(C) Hey Stam(D)pede
