C                            Em
Mail Pouch Tobacco signs are crumblin' in waltz time
       Dm                     G
On the sides of forgotten old barns
        Dm                G              Dm            G
And the rockin' chair's a-rollin' on the porch down at Dolan's
      G                               C
Where Roanie tells those wild western yarns
        C                     Em
About a big roan caballo that ruled the arroyos
          F                       Fm 
Then he's hummin' 'The Strawberry Roan'
        C                                G  
And the boys start to sighin' 'cause old Roanie he's cryin'
     G                          C
He's forgotten the words to the song

F                            Em
Roanie, you're nothin' but a drugstore vaquero
            F            G             C
You've been tellin' your lies too damn long
F                          Em 
A-hummin' the tune to 'The Strawberry Roan'
D7                          G
Forgettin' the words to the song
    Dm            G                C
Hey, Roanie, your old wild west is gone

Now the Great Western Feed Lot's turned into a truck stop
Where old Roanie drinks coffee all night
And he tells all the drivers he's an outlaw survivor
And he beat Jesse James in a fight
And the waitresses smile, Lord, they're lost for a while
Makin' love in some gunfighters bed
And the wild west keeps dyin' and old Roanie keeps on lyin'
About the home on the range in his head

F                                      Em  
He'd cough and he'd wink, he'd say, Lord I need a drink
      F               G             C 
And I gotta get these dogies movin' on
F                             Em
I'm pony ridin' mail down the wild Chisolm Trail
D7                   G 
Gotta make Laredo by dawn
          Dm                                    G   
Hey, does anyone remember the words to that old song
   C                 Am           G    
As I rode out in the streets of Laredo
C         F        Am       G
As I rode out in Laredo one day

Well, the Mail Pouch Tobacco signs are crumblin' in waltz time
On the sides of forgotten old barns
And the rockin' chair's been stolen off the porch down at Dolan's
Where old Roanie told those wild western yarns
And that big roan caballo has left the arroyos
He's swayback and plumb broken down
And old Roanie, he's buried in the new cemetery
Yeah, there ain't no more Boot Hills around

Chorus 2:
Roanie was nothin' but a drugstore vaquero
Who'd been tellin' his lies too damn long
A-hummin' the tune to 'The Strawberry Roan'
Forgettin' the words to the song
And now Roanie and the West are both gone

        C             G          C             G
So it's beat the drum slowly and play the fife lowly
         Am          F              Am            G
He had a pain in his chest and he's bound to move on
         C       G          C 
Singin', Oh that strawberry roan
F  C  F  C
mmmmm, Mmmmmmmm
F                   C
Turn on a nickel and give you some change
          G                    C
Who could ride that strawberry roan
