Jim Henry - Quickdraw Southpaw's Last Hurrah



[Intro]
C  F  C    Am  C  G  C     F  C    Am  C  G  C

[Verse 1]
                         F            C
Billy begged his daddy, "Daddy, let's go
   Am        C          G         C
To Quickdraw Southpaw's Wild West Show
                         F            C
Big Chief Barker and (F)Buffalo (C)Slim"

(Am)Billy said, (C)"Man I wanna (G)be like (C)them"


[Verse 2]
                    F      C
"Son, my son it's a crying shame
    Am       C              Dm      G  
The range is fenced and the west is tamed"
 C                F          C
"Daddy, oh daddy, didn't you know
      Am       C           G        C
There ain't no fences in a cowboy's soul"


[Chorus]
Em   F                 C
Whoa boys, look at him ride
     Am      C            Dm      G  
On a sawdust prairie in a big top sky
Em   F                    C
Whoa boys, the whole town saw
    F      C             G     F
The first ovation to the final call
                         G       C
And Quickdraw Southpaw's last hurrah 


[Instrumental]
C  F  C    Am  C  G  C


[Verse 3]
                           F         C
Billy signed on the day he turned sixteen
Am            C            Dm     G
Didn't know a cinch from a latigo lead
       C                       F          C
But he learned how to rope, to canter and shoot
        Am             C             G          C
Till he looked right familiar in the boss man's boots


[Chorus]
Em   F                 C
Whoa boys, look at him ride
     Am      C            Dm      G  
On a sawdust prairie in a big top sky
Em   Am        F           Em
Whoa boys, the heart walks tall
        F         C          G           F
From an old man's folly to a young man's fall
                         G       C
And Quickdraw Southpaw's last hurrah 


[Instrumental]
C  F  C    Am  C  G  C


{Bridge]
Am                     Em
Double trouble and the Texas skip
   F                         C
He worked the circuit on the hayseed strip
    Am                Em
The carney route over New Madrid
    F                                   C
For fifty good years he was the two-gun kid


[Verse 4]
    C                               F          C
For fifty good years he watched the clock wind down
Am          C             Dm        G  
Skyscrapers climbing over one-horse towns
    C                        F          C
The times got meaner and the crowds got small
Am          C         G         C
Billy never seemed to notice at all


[Chorus]
Em    F                 C
Whoa, boys, look at him ride
     Am      C            Dm      G  
On a sawdust prairie in a big top sky
Em    Am        F         Em
Whoa, boys, you can't get far
     F          C          G       F
On a bone-tired pony and a falling star
                         G       C
And Quickdraw Southpaw's last hurrah 


[Instrumental]
Em  F  C  Am  Em  F  G


[Verse 5]
        C                            F       C
Now his spurs don't jingle like they used to do
    Am       C               G          C
The sky's in tatters and the moon peeks through
                       F      C
Every night he saddles up old Joe
        Am        C             G        C
Saying, "Giddy-up partner, just one more show"


[Verse 6]
                           F          C
Up in the bleachers in the very front row
       Am        C            Dm       G  
Sits a wide-eyed boy with his daddy in tow
        C                    F       C
And the kid goes home and he dreams again
     Am     C            G       C
Of a lonely rider on the wayward wind
         F                   G       C
He says, "Some day I'm gonna be like him"


[Chorus]
Em   F                 C
Whoa boys, look at him ride
     Am      C            Dm      G  
On a sawdust prairie in a big top sky
Em    Am           F       Em
Whoa, boys, it's a natural law
    F           C                G       F
The dream keeps going though the dreamer stalls
                               G       F
And the night comes in and the curtain falls
                         G       C
And Quickdraw Southpaw's last hurrah 


[Outro]
C  F  C    Am  C  G  C
C  F  C    Am  C  G  C
