WOODY GUTHRIE - THE RANGER'S COMMAND



    Words and Music by Woody Guthrie



[Verse 1]

       G                              C

Come all of you cowboys all over this land

       D7                            G

I'll sing you the law of the Ranger's command

   G                               C

To hold a six-shooter and never to run

    D7                                     G

As long as there's bullets in both of your guns



[Verse 2]

G                                     C

I met a fair maiden whose name I don't know

D7                                        G

I asked her to the round up with me would she go

G                                       C

She said she'd go with me to the cold round-up

   D7                                        G

And drink that hard liquor from a cold bitter cup



[Verse 3]

G                                  C

We started for the round up in the fall of the year

D7                                     G

Expecting to get there, with a herd of fat steer

G                                     C

When the rustlers broke on us, in the dead hour of night

    D7                                  G

She rose from her warm bed, a battle to fight



[Verse 4]

G                                 C

She rose from her warm bed with a gun in each hand

    D7                                           G

Saying, "Come all you cowboys, and fight for your land"

G                            C

Come all of you cowboys, and don't ever run

   D7                                     G

As long as there's bullets in both of your guns
