[Intro]
C


[Verse 1] 
C          C/G            C             F                C    C/G
And now my friends you've asked me what makes me sad and still
    C      G7      C                 G7              C
And why my brow is darkened like the clouds upon the hill
F                  C               F              C
Run in your ponies closer and I'll tell to you my tale
   C    G7       C               G7               C
Of Utah Carol my partner and his last ride on the trail


[Verse 2] 
   C        C/G     C          F               C
We rode the range together and rode it side by side
  C         G7     C             G7             C
I loved him like a brother and I wept when Utah died
F                       C            F               C
We were rounding up one morning when work was almost done
     C      G7       C              G7              C
When on his side the cattle started on a frightened run


[Verse 3] 
C    C/G       C               F               C
Underneath the saddle that the boss's daughter rode
C         G7   C           G7                  C
Utah that very morning had placed a bright red robe
       F                 C        F                 C
So the saddle might ride easy for Lenore his little friend
    C      G7       C       G7                      C
And it was this red blanket that brought him to his end


[Verse 4] 
    C       C/G     C          F               C
The blanket was now dragging behind her on the ground
    C          G7     C          G7                C
The frightened cattle saw it and charged it with a bound
  F                 C          F                 C
Lenore then saw her danger and turned her pony's face
    C       G7     C               G7             C
And leaning in the saddle tied the blanket to its place


[Verse 5] 
       C       C/G      C               F                  C
But in leaning lost her balance fell in front of that wild tide
    C       G7       C               G7              C
Lay still Lenore I'm coming were the words that Utah cried
    F             C           F                  C
His faithful pony saw her and reached her with a bound
  C            G7      C           G7                  C
I thought he'd been successful and raised her from the ground


[Verse 6] 
        C        C/G    C          F               C
But the weight upon the saddle had not been felt before
    C          G7           C           G7           C
His back cinch snapped like thunder and he fell by Lenore
F              C          F                 C
Picking up the blanket he swung it over his head
     C      G7        C            G7               C
And started cross the prairie "Lay still Lenore" he said


[Verse 7]
        C       C/G      C          F                C
When he got the stampede turned and saved Lenore his friend
     C         G7       C          G7             C
Then turned to face the cattle and meet his fatal end
    F                    C               F                  C
His six gun flashed like lightning the report rang loud and clear
       C      G7         C             G7                  C
As the cattle rushed and killed him he dropped the leading steer


[Verse 8] 
C      C/G     C         F                  C
On his funeral morning I heard the preacher say
  C          G7       C           G7           C
I hope we'll all meet Utah at the roundup far away
          F                C            F                C
Then they wrapped him in a blanket that saved his little friend
     C      G7      C            G7                 C
And it was this red blanket that brought him to his end
