Colter Wall – Tying Knots In The Devils Tail chords
[Intro] F F F [Verse 1] F Well it was way high up in The Sierry Petes C Where the yellow-jack pines grow tall Rusty Diggs and Sandy Sam F Had a round-up camp last fall [Verse 2] F They had their ponies and their running irons Bb C and maybe a dog or two They 'lowed they'd brand every lop-eared calf F That came within their view [Verse 3] F Well many a lop-eared dogie C If he didn't hush up by day Had his long ears whittled and his old hide scorched F In a most artistic way [Verse 4] F Then say Rusty Digs to Sandy Sam Bb C As he throwed his seago down "I'm tired of cowboyography F And I figures I'll go to town." [Verse 6] F They starts her in a Kentucky Bar C At the head of Whiskey Row And they ends her up at the Depot House F Some forty drinks below [Verse 7] F Then he wind'er up and they turns her 'round Bb C And goes the other way Tell you the Lord-forsaken truth F Them boys got drunk that day [Verse 8] F Well they was a -headin' back to camp C And packin' a mighty good load Well who should they meet but the Devil himself F Come a-prancin' down the road [Verse 9] F Now the Devil he said you cowboy skunks Bb C You'd better go hunt your hole 'Cause I come up from the Hells rim rock F To gather in your souls [Verse 10] F Says Rustry Jiggs to the Devil C Though I know We're' tight No Devil ever took no cowboy souls F Without some kind of a fight." [Verse 11] F So Rusty Jiggs punched a hole in his rope C He swang it straight and true He ropes the Devil 'round the horns F And he take his slack up too [Verse 12] F Now Sandy Bob was a reita man A With his rope all coiled up neat C So he shakes her out and he builds him a loop F And he ropes the Devils hind feet [Verse 13] F Well they throwed him down on the desert ground C While the irons was a gettin' hot They cropped and swallow-forked his ears F And they branded him up a lot [Verse 14] F Well they pruned him up with a dehornin' saw Bb C Tied knots in his tail for a joke Then they rode off and left him there F Necked up to a black Jack oak [Verse 15] F So if you're up in the Sierry Petes Bb C And you hear one awful wail Know its that Devil a-bellowin arounf F about them knots in his tail X
