C#                                  F#              C#
Way out in North Nevada, where the Trukee's waters flow
C#                                          F#            G#
Where the cattle are "a-browzin'' and the Spanish ponies grow
C#                                       F#                C#  
Where the Norther comes whistlin' from beyond the Neutral strip
C#                                   F#      G#        C#
And the prairie dogs are sneezin' as if they had "the Grip"

            G#            Bbm               F#            C#
Where the coyotes come a-howlin' round the ranches after dark
         G#              Bbm            F#            G#
And the blue-birds are singin' to the lovely "medder lark"
           G#            Bbm              F#            C#
Where the big horns are grazin' and the lonely plovers call
         G#            Bbm          F#         G#     C# 
It was there that I attended "The Cowboys' Christmas Ball"

*(REPEAT INTRO)

C#                                  F#              C#
The boys had left the ranches and come to town in piles
C#                                    F#            G#
The ladies "kinder scatterin'" had gathered in for miles
C#                                       F#          C#
The room was togged out gorgeous with mistletoe and shawls
C#                                F#       G#    C#
And candles flickered frescoes around the airy walls

        G#                 Bbm         F#                 C#
The "wimmin folks" looked lovely, the boys looked kinder treed
             G#              Bbm            F#               G#
Till their leader commenced yellin': "Hey, fellers, let's stampede"
     G#            Bbm            F#                 C#
The music started sighin' and a-wailin' through the hall
      G#          Bbm              F#         G#     C# 
As a kind of introduction to "The Cowboys' Christmas Ball"

*(REPEAT INTRO)

C#                                       F#        C#
The leader was a fellow that came from Swenson's Ranch
C#                                    F#                 G#
They called him "Windy Billy," from "little Dead-man's Branch"
C#                                  F#                    C#
His rig was "kinder keerless," big spurs and high-heeled boots
C#                           F#           G#    C#
He had the reputation that comes when "fellers shoots"

     Bbm                      Fm        
His voice was like the bugle upon the mountain's height
     Bbm                        F#           G#
His feet were animated, an' a mighty movin' sight
     C#                               F#               C#   
When he commenced to holler, "Now, fellers, stake yer pen!
          C#                                   F#            C#
Come on! lock horns to all them heifers, an' russle 'em like men

  G#                 Bbm         F#               C#
Saloot yer lovely critters; now swing an' let 'em go
  G#                  Bbm            F#         G#
Climb the grape vine round 'em, all hands do-ce-do!
       G#                Bbm            F#          C#
And Mavericks, jine the round-up, jest skip her waterfall"
     G#               Bbm          F#         G#     C# 
Huh! hit wuz gittin' happy, "The Cowboys' Christmas Ball!"

*(REPEAT INTRO)

       C#                             F#           C#
Don't tell me about cotillions, or germans. No sir 'ee!
       C#                       F#                 G#
That whirl at Carson City just takes the cake with me
     C#                          F#               C#
I'm sick of lazy shufflin's, of them I've had my fill
      C#                             F#          G#    C#
Just give me a fronteer breakdown, backed up by Wild Bill

   G#               Bbm         F#              C#
McAllister ain't nowhere! when Windy leads the show
      G#                 Bbm       F#           G#
I've seen 'em both in harness, an' so I sorter know
     G#               Bbm            F#               C#
Oh, Bill, I sha'n't forget yer, and I'll oftentimes recall
        G#           Bbm          F#         G#     C# 
That lively-gaited sworray, "The Cowboys' Christmas Ball"

    G#               Bbm            F#               C#
Oh, Bill, I sha'n't forget yer, and I'll oftentimes recall
        G#           Bbm          F#         G#     C# 
That lively-gaited sworray, "The Cowboys' Christmas Ball"
