Garth Brooks - In Lonesome Dove

Printable Version


From "Ropin' The Wind" (1991)

INTRO:  [G]

She [G]was a girl on a wagon train
[C]Headed [G]west [D]across the [G]plains
The [Em]train got lost in a [C]summer [D]storm
They [Em]couldn't move west and they [C]couldn't go [D]home
Then she [G]saw him ridin' through the rain
He took [C]charge of the [G]wagons and he [D]saved the [G]train
And she [Em]looked down and her [C]heart was [D]gone
The [Em]train went west but she [C]stayed [D]on 
In [G]Lonesome Dove

A [G]farmer's daughter with a gentle hand
A [C]blooming [G]rose in a [D]bed of [G]sand
She [Em]loved the man who [C]wore a [D]star
A [Em]Texas Ranger known [C]near and [D]far
So [G]they got married and they had a child
But [C]times were [G]tough and the [D]west was [G]wild
So it was [Em]no surprise the [C]day she [D]learned
That her [Em]Texas man would [C]not re[D]turn
To [G]Lonesome Dove  [G]  [D/F#]

CHORUS:
[Em]Back to back with the [G]Rio Grande
A [C]Christian woman in the [G]devil's [D]land
She [Em]learned the language and she [D]learned to fight
But she [C]never learned how to beat the [Am]lonely nights  [A]  [B]  [C]  [E]  [D]
In [G]Lonesome Dove, Lonesome Dove

She [G]watched her boy grow to a man 
He had an [C]angel's [G]heart and the [D]devil's [G]hand
He [Em]wore his star for [C]all to [D]see
He was a [Em]Texas lawman [C]lega[D]cy
Then [G]one day word blew into town
It seemed the [C]men who [G]shot his [D]father [G]down
Had [Em]robbed a bank in [C]Cheri[D]co
The only [Em]thing 'tween them and [C]Mexi[D]co
Was [G]Lonsome Dove

The [G]shadows stretched across the land
As the [C]shots rang [G]out down the [D]Rio [G]Grande
And when the [Em]smoke had finally [C]cleared the [D]street
The [Em]men lay at the [C]ranger's [D] feet
But [G]legend tells to this very day
That [C]shots were [G]comin' from an [D]alleyway [G]
'Through [Em]no one knows who [C]held the [D]gun
There [Em]ain't no doubt if you [C]ask [D]someone
in [G]Lonesome Dove
