Slim Dusty Saddle Boy   CAPO 1
          G                      C 
Thru the grey frosty dawn every cold winters morn
           G             C   G   D 
 rode this lad full of life and joy
       G                          C
Every day just the same down the roadway he came
          D                        G
 he was known as their own saddle boy
          G                            C 
In his youth free from strife he was called from this life
           G            C   G    D
 from the sorrows of lifes high-way
       G                   C
He was needed above at the homestead of love
           D                      G  
 for the last final roundup some-day
        G                     C 
Now the sad willows wave on a cold silent grave
         G                C   G   D        
 where the tall grasses bend and bow
        G                      C 
And the jackasses laugh is the only epitah
          D                         G
 o'er the grave of this brave saddle boy.
           G                                      C
At the schoolhouse on the rise teacher always watched the skies
          G                  C    G    D
 for the storm clouds that rose like foam
        G                        C
Youve a long way he said so youd better go ahead
        D                     G
 saddle up saddle boy ride for home.
         G                        C
He had 10 miles to ride thru the dark countryside
         G            C      G    D  
 as the storms all around raised on
         G                               C
Just one creek left to cross struck by drifwood boy and horse
        D                     G
 swept away by the mad raging foam
        G                             C  
And the lightning overhead showed the last sandy bed
        G           C    G   D     
 where the boy and the pony lay
        G                              C    
And old boundry rider Troy was the the one who found the boy
         D                                G
 and who took the saddning message home next day
          G                     C
And the old people say of the long nights in May
         G           C     G      D
 when the wind thru the valley rolls
         G                          C
Founding hoofbeats resound thru the tall timberland
           D                    G
 its there own saddle boy riding home
