Slim Dusty - Saddle Boy

         C                      F 
Thru the grey frosty dawn every cold winters morn
           C                    G7 
 rode this lad full of life and joy
      C                          F
Every day just the same down the roadway he came
        G7                        C
 he was known as their own saddle boy
In his youth free from strife he was called from this life
          C                     G7
 from the sorrows of lifes high-way
       C                   F
He was needed above at the homestead of love
         G7                      C  
 for the last final roundup some-day
        F                     C 
Now the sad willows wave on a cold silent grave
 where the tall grasses bend and bow
        C                      F 
And the jackasses laugh is the only epitah
          G7                         C
 o'er the grave of this brave saddle boy.
At the schoolhouse on the rise teacher always watched the skies
         C                           G7
 for the storm clouds that rose like foam
        C                        F
Youve a long way he said so youd better go ahead
        G7                     C
 saddle up saddle boy ride for home.
He had 10 miles to ride thru the dark countryside
 as the storms all around raised on
         C                             F
Just one creek left to cross struck by drifwood boy and horse
       G7                     C
 swept away by the mad raging foam
        F                             C  
And the lightning overhead showed the last sandy bed
 where the boy and the pony lay
        C                              F    
And old boundry rider Troy was the the one who found the boy
         G7                                  C
 and who took the saddning message home next day
        F                     C
And the old people say of the long nights in May
 when the wind thru the valley rolls
         C                          F
Founding hoofbeats resound thru the tall timberland
           G7                    C
 its there own saddle boy riding home
