Red Headed Stranger

Höfundur lags: Edith Linderman og Carl Stutz Flytjandi: Willie Nelson Sent inn af: Anonymous

[C]The red-headed stranger from Blue Rock, Montana
Rode into town one [G7]day   
And [C]under his knees was a [F]raging black [C]stallion
And [D7]walking behind was a [G7]bay   

The [C]red-headed stranger had eyes like thunder
And lips that were sad and[G7] tight
His [C]little lost love lay a[F]sleep on the hil[C]lside
And his heart was [G7]heavy as [C]night

So don't [F]cross him don't boss him
He's [C]wild in his sorrow
He's riding and he's hiding his[G7] pain
Don't [F]fight him don't spite him
Just [C]wait 'til tomorrow
Maybe he'll [G7]ride on [C]again


A yellow-haired lady leaned out of her window
And watched as he passed her [G7]way   
And [C]she drew back in fear at the [F]sight of the [C]stallion
But cast [D7]greedy eyes on the [G7]bay   

But [C]how could she know that the dancing bay pony
Meant more to him than [G7]life   
For [C]this was the horse that his [F]little lost [C]darling
Had ridden when [G7]she was his [C]wife

So don't [F]cross him don't boss him
He's [C]wild in his sorrow
He's riding and he's hiding his[G7] pain
Don't [F]fight him don't spite him
Just [C]wait 'til tomorrow
Maybe he'll [G7]ride on [C]again


The yellow-haired lady went down to the tavern
And looked up the stranger [G7]there
He [C]bought her a drink and he [F]gave her some [C]money
But he [D7]just didn't seem to [G7]care   

She [C]followed him out as he saddled his stallion
And laughed as she grabbed at the [G7]bay   
He [C]shot her so quick they had [F]no time to warn [C]her  
She never [G7]heard anyone [C]say  

So don't [F]cross him don't boss him
He's [C]wild in his sorrow
He's riding and he's hiding his[G7] pain
Don't [F]fight him don't spite him
Just [C]wait 'til tomorrow
Maybe he'll [G7]ride on [C]again


The yellow-haired lady was buried at sunset
The stranger went free of [G7]course
For [C]you can't hang a man for [F]killing a [C]woman
Who's [D7]trying to steal your [G7]horse

Now [C]this is the tale of the red-headed stranger
And if he should pass your [G7]way   
Stay [C]out of the path of the [F]raging black [C]stallion
And don't lay a [G7]hand on the [C]bay  

So don't [F]cross him don't boss him
He's [C]wild in his sorrow
He's riding and he's hiding his[G7] pain
Don't [F]fight him don't spite him
Just [C]wait 'til tomorrow
Maybe he'll [G7]ride on [C]again


The red-headed stranger from Blue Rock, Montana
Rode into town one day
And under his knees was a raging black stallion
And walking behind was a bay

The red-headed stranger had eyes like thunder
And lips that were sad and tight
His little lost love lay asleep on the hillside
And his heart was heavy as night

So don't cross him don't boss him
He's wild in his sorrow
He's riding and he's hiding his pain
Don't fight him don't spite him
Just wait 'til tomorrow
Maybe he'll ride on again

A yellow-haired lady leaned out of her window
And watched as he passed her way
And she drew back in fear at the sight of the stallion
But cast greedy eyes on the bay

But how could she know that the dancing bay pony
Meant more to him than life
For this was the horse that his little lost darling
Had ridden when she was his wife

So don't cross him don't boss him
He's wild in his sorrow
He's riding and he's hiding his pain
Don't fight him don't spite him
Just wait 'til tomorrow
Maybe he'll ride on again

The yellow-haired lady went down to the tavern
And looked up the stranger there
He bought her a drink and he gave her some money
But he just didn't seem to care

She followed him out as he saddled his stallion
And laughed as she grabbed at the bay
He shot her so quick they had no time to warn her
She never heard anyone say

So don't cross him don't boss him
He's wild in his sorrow
He's riding and he's hiding his pain
Don't fight him don't spite him
Just wait 'til tomorrow
Maybe he'll ride on again

The yellow-haired lady was buried at sunset
The stranger went free of course
For you can't hang a man for killing a woman
Who's trying to steal your horse

Now this is the tale of the red-headed stranger
And if he should pass your way
Stay out of the path of the raging black stallion
And don't lay a hand on the bay

So don't cross him don't boss him
He's wild in his sorrow
He's riding and he's hiding his pain
Don't fight him don't spite him
Just wait 'til tomorrow
Maybe he'll ride on again
