Saddle Tramp - Marty Robbins

First released on the Saddle Tramp album in 1966

Key F
The guitar line is difficult to hear in the mix. The "feel" is set by a simple alternating bass 
line and I have tabbed to emphasise it. 
Each chord symbol is a 3/4 bar, ( all chord changes come on the first beat of the bar.)

The split chords indicate picking the bass note indicated rather than the chord root.

For example: F/C is pick C as beat 1 than 2 strums F (downstroke) on beats 2 & 3.
F on its own is pick F on beat 1 then 2 strums F on beats 2&3



Intro: Dm   F/C   Dm   F/C   Dm    F/C    Dm    F/C  

     F         F/C           F          F/C
They call me a drifter, they say I'm no good
F            F/C         Dm   Dm/A                     
I'll never amount to a thing
       F        F/C           F         F/C
Well I may be a drifter and I may be no good
        F           Bb        F      F/C
There's joy in this song that I sing.

       Dm    Dm/A      F     F/C  
Saddle tramp,   saddle tramp
       Dm          Dm           Gm           Gm
I'm as free as the breeze and I ride where I please
       F    F/C      Dm    Dm/A
Saddle tramp, saddle tramp!

   F            F/C           F          F/C
At night I will rest 'neath a blanket of blue
F          F/C       Dm      Dm/A
Doubt if I ever will change
  F          F/C        F      F/C                                      
I might even dream of a lady I knew
F          Bb          F     F/C    
Might even whisper her name


       Dm    Dm/A      F     F/C  
Saddle tramp,   saddle tramp
       Dm          Dm           Gm           Gm
I'm as free as the breeze and I ride where I please
       F     F/C  F7  F7
Saddle tramp


  Bb         Bb         F     F
I might even wind up in Idaho
    C       C           F    F
And visit a cute little miss
  Bb           Bb          F
A sweet little someone I used to know
      G          G           C          C  
And I might even stop long enough for a kiss.


       Dm   Dm/A      F     F/C  
Saddle tramp,  saddle tramp
       Dm          Dm           Gm           Gm 
I'm as free as the breeze and I ride where I please
       F    F/C      Dm    Dm/A
Saddle tramp, saddle tramp!

   F       F/C               F           F/C
Might even ride back through Phoenix someday
F          F/C       Dm      Dm/A
Might even stop for awhile
    F           F/C         F           F/C             
But branded, no never! I'll not be tied down
F            Bb          F      F/C   
Trapped by a fair lady's smile.


       Dm    Dm/A      F     F/C  
Saddle tramp, saddle tramp
       Dm          Dm           Gm           Gm
I'm as free as the breeze and I ride where I please
      F    F/C       F    F/C F  F/C  F
Saddle tramp, saddle tramp!
