Transpose:
[Chorus]
C C7Bald Butte, Bald Butte so lofty and so high
FCarry me to Bald Butte
CWhere the plains wrap round the sky
G CYou can dig a hole on Bald Butte when I die
[Verse 1]
CHenry was born on Bald Butte
C7A paint horse he did ride
FWell he roped him in Alberta
CBroke him on the Montana line
G CTore him a trail through the northwest countryside
[Verse 2]
CHenry took to stealing
C7Robbing on the CP Rail
FHe got the devil on his shoulders
CAnd the law man on his tail
GYou better ride, Henry ride
CYou ain't got no friends to go your bail
[Verse 3]
CWell he rode across the Grey Back camp
C7Up in Cypress Hills
FThey said they left the US nation
COn the day that Richmond fell
G CThey whistled Dixie and set him up a still
[Verse 4]
CHenry woke the next morn
C7Like a corpse from the grave
FHalf blind and twice as haggard
CHe took a cast iron to the brain
G CThey stole his horse and the rifle that shared his name
[Verse 5]
CAnd he tracked them former Johnny Rebs
C7Through the prairie and the trees
FUp old Castle Mountain
CCross the river Wapiti
G CLow and behold, what do you think he sees
I see my paint
F CI see my rifle that shares my name
GI see them men that done me wrong
CLord, I'm gonna do them just the same
[Verse 6]
CHenry grabbed his rifle
C7Up off of the ground
FHe kissed the ever-loving barrel
CAnd he shot them old boys down
G CThey hit the dirt, he revelled in the soumd
[Verse 7]
CNow he's back up in the saddle
C7Back up on the top
FWhen he felt that southern slug
CChew a hole right through his gut
GHe thought he killed them all
CBut he had not
[Verse 9]
CThat paint took off a running
C7Through the water and the mud
FNo earthly force in this whole world
CCould stop that 'Berta stud
G CHenry sat there laughing up his blood
CAnd he was singing
[Chorus]
C C7Bald Butte, Bald Butte so lofty and so high
FCarry me to Bald Butte
CWhere the plains wrap round the the sky
G CYou can dig a hole on Bald Butte when I die
