The Yellow Stud

1st verse:

Cm Eb F Ab

Somewhere on the prairie a yellow stud runs free,

Cm Eb G

runnin through the sagebrush down through the coolies.

Cm Eb F Ab

and there not far behind him, a cowboy rides along.

Cm F G Cm

He's gonna try to catch him and break him for his own.

2nd verse:

Cm Eb F Ab

The chase goes on all mornin and late into th day

Cm Eb G

the cowboy changes horses he staked along the way

Cm Eb F Ab

the stud is growin weaker now and gettin short of wind

Cm F G Ab

he runs into a trap corral the cowboy shuts him in

3rd verse:

Cm Eb F Ab

The yellow stud with wild eyes, the feared, hated man

Cm E G

finally standin face to face in the hot, dusty sand

Cm Eb F Ab

the battle starts and rages on beneath the burnin sun

Cm F G Cm

the cowoboy tried but couldn't ride this yellow outlaw stud.

4th verse:

Cm Eb F Ab

(recitation) He sold him to a rodeo, and it spread thoughout the land

Cm Eb G

the legend of this yellow stud, the baddest of the bad

Cm Eb F Ab

(sing)And then one day at cheyenne we knew it had to come

Cm F G Cm

the best of all bronc riders, he drew that yellow stud

5th verse:

the wooden gate few open and the stud had bailed out high

an explosion of yellow horse seemed to fill the sky

the stud kept gettin stronger and thrashin up the earth

the cowboy blew a stirrup and crashed into the dirt.

6th verse:

so violently the stud had bucked that he slipped and fell.

as he went down his backbone snapped

the yellow stud lay still

7th verse:

(recitation)As the cowboys gathered round him, i heard one of em say

There'll never be another bronc like the one that died today

But out there on the prairie there's a mare with mustang blood

and a colt runs close beside her, a yellow outlaw stud.
