The red-headed stranger from Blue Rock, Montana

                   G7
Rode into town one day

    C                     F            C
And under his knees was a raging black stallion

    D7                   G7
And walking behind was a bay

 
    C
The red-headed stranger had eyes like thunder

                          G7
And lips that were sad and tight

    C                     F               C
His little lost love lay asleep on the hillside

                  G7       C
And his heart was heavy as night

 
         F
So don't cross him don't boss him

     C
He's wild in his sorrow

                               G7
He's riding and he's hiding his pain

      F
Don't fight him don't spite him

     C
Just wait 'til tomorrow

            G7      C
Maybe he'll ride on again

 
 
A yellow-haired lady leaned out of her window

                             G7
And watched as he passed her way

    C                            F            C 
And she drew back in fear at the sight of the stallion

         D7                 G7 
But cast greedy eyes on the bay

 
    C
But how could she know that the dancing bay pony

                       G7
Meant more to him than life

    C                           F           C 
For this was the horse that his little lost darling

                G7          C 
Had ridden when she was his wife

 
         F
So don't cross him don't boss him

     C
He's wild in his sorrow

                               G7
He's riding and he's hiding his pain

      F
Don't fight him don't spite him

     C
Just wait 'til tomorrow

            G7      C
Maybe he'll ride on again


 
The yellow-haired lady went down to the tavern

                           G7
And looked up the stranger there

   C                         F             C
He bought her a drink and he gave her some money

       D7                  G7
But he just didn't seem to care

 
    C
She followed him out as he saddled his stallion

                                  G7
And laughed as she grabbed at the bay

   C                          F               C 
He shot her so quick they had no time to warn her

          G7           C
She never heard anyone say

 
         F
So don't cross him don't boss him

     C
He's wild in his sorrow

                               G7
He's riding and he's hiding his pain

      F
Don't fight him don't spite him

     C
Just wait 'til tomorrow

            G7      C
Maybe he'll ride on again


 
The yellow-haired lady was buried at sunset

                          G7
The stranger went free of course

    C                        F         C
For you can't hang a man for killing a woman

      D7                   G7
Who's trying to steal your horse

 
    C
Now this is the tale of the red-headed stranger

                           G7
And if he should pass your way

     C                      F            C 
Stay out of the path of the raging black stallion

                G7          C 
And don't lay a hand on the bay

 
         F
So don't cross him don't boss him

     C
He's wild in his sorrow

                               G7
He's riding and he's hiding his pain

      F
Don't fight him don't spite him

     C
Just wait 'til tomorrow

            G7      C
Maybe he'll ride on again
