When The Works All Done This Fall

Song Author D.J. OMalley Performer: Marty Robbins Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]A group of jolly cowboys dis[F]cussing plans at ease
One [G7]said I'll tell you something boys if you will listen [C]please
I'm an old cowpuncher and [F]here I'm dressed in rags
I [G7]used to be a tough one and go on great big [C]jags

I have got a home boys a [F]good one you all know
Al[G7]though I haven't seen it since long long [C]ago  
I'm going back to Dixie once [F]more to see them all
I'm [G7]going home to mother when the work's all done this [C]fall

That night this very cowboy went [F]out to stand his guard
The [G7]night was dark and stormy was raining very [C]hard
The cattle they got frightened and they [F]rushed in wild stampede
The [G7]cowboy tried to turn them while riding at full [C]speed

Riding in the darkness [F]loudly he did shout
[G7]Trying his best to stop them or turn the herd [C]about
His saddle horse did stumble and [F]upon him it did fall
Poor [G7]boy won't see his mother when the work's all done this [C]fall

Fred you can take my saddle [F]Jim you take my bed
[G7]Johnny take my pistols after I am [C]dead
Think about me kindly as you [F]look upon them all
I'll [G7]not see my mother when the work's all done this [C]fall

They buried Charlie at daybreak no [F]tombstone at his head
[G7]Nothing but a little board and this is what it [C]said
Charlie died at daybreak he [F]died from a fall
Poor [G7]boy won't see his mother when the work's all done this [C]fall


A group of jolly cowboys discussing plans at ease

I have got a home boys a good one you all know
Although I haven't seen it since long long ago
I'm going back to Dixie once more to see them all
I'm going home to mother when the work's all done this fall

That night this very cowboy went out to stand his guard
The night was dark and stormy was raining very hard

The cowboy tried to turn them while riding at full speed

Riding in the darkness loudly he did shout
Trying his best to stop them or turn the herd about
His saddle horse did stumble and upon him it did fall
Poor boy won't see his mother when the work's all done this fall

Fred you can take my saddle Jim you take my bed

Think about me kindly as you look upon them all
I'll not see my mother when the work's all done this fall

They buried Charlie at daybreak no tombstone at his head
Nothing but a little board and this is what it said
Charlie died at daybreak he died from a fall
Poor boy won't see his mother when the work's all done this fall
