Streets Of Dodge

Song Author Fred B. Horton og Bryan Westfield Mintz Performer: Johnny Horton Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]Only a saddle [Am]for my bed [C]heaven as my [Am]lodge
[C]Since I lost [Am]everything [C]on the streets of [Am]Dodge
[C]On the [F]streets of [C]Dodge

Left old San [Am]Antonio [C]back in '6[Am]8   
[C]Headed for Dodge [Am]City Kansas [C]there to meet my [Am]babe   
[C]There to [F]meet my [C]babe

The reason I was [Am]leaving [C]was to see my Emmy[Am]lou   
[C]She and a [Am]gambler man [C]fell in love and made me [Am]blue   
[C]Fell in [F]love and made me [C]blue

As I rode into [Am]Dodge City [C]on that fateful [Am]day   
[C]When I stopped at the [Am]big saloon [C]I could hear the people [Am]say   
[C]Son you made [F]your fate this [C]day  

I went for my [Am]44 I [C]saw the blur of his [Am]hand   
[C]And I felt that [Am]hot lead burn [C]as he shot me to the [Am]sand   
[C]Shot me [F]to the [C]sand

With one boot in the [Am]stirrup and [C]burning shame [Am]inside
[C]I left old Dodge [Am]City where [C]I lost my loving [Am]bride
[C]Where I [F]lost my loving [C]bride

Only a saddle [Am]for my bed and [C]heaven as my [Am]lodge
[C]I lost [Am]everything [C]there on the streets of [Am]Dodge
[C]There on the [F]streets of [C]Dodge


Only a saddle for my bed heaven as my lodge
Since I lost everything on the streets of Dodge
On the streets of Dodge

Left old San Antonio back in '68
Headed for Dodge City Kansas there to meet my babe
There to meet my babe

The reason I was leaving was to see my Emmylou
She and a gambler man fell in love and made me blue
Fell in love and made me blue

As I rode into Dodge City on that fateful day
When I stopped at the big saloon I could hear the people say
Son you made your fate this day

I went for my 44 I saw the blur of his hand
And I felt that hot lead burn as he shot me to the sand
Shot me to the sand

With one boot in the stirrup and burning shame inside
I left old Dodge City where I lost my loving bride
Where I lost my loving bride

Only a saddle for my bed and heaven as my lodge
I lost everything there on the streets of Dodge
There on the streets of Dodge
