Capo 2

     C                        F        C  
From Palo Duro Canyon outside Amarillo Texas
    C                            F         G  
The prairie dog town fork of the Red River flows
C                               F        C 
Headed cross the plains for the coast of Oklahoma
       C                         F       G   C  
To the Mississippi River and the Gulf of Mexico

My great granddaddy came to that Red River line
And camped on the north side until it was time
To cross or to stay, to be sooner or not
Well he headed south to San Antone, they said he liked it hot


Chorus: 
    F       C           F           C  
Red River I know you, I know you of old
         C     C/B   Am Am/G    F             G                          
You have filled up my pockets with quicksand and gold
   F         C     F                C   
Susanna oh Susanna when it comes my time
          C C/B  Am  Am/G    F   G     C  
Won't you bury me south of that Red River line

Here's to Charlie Goodnight and Mr. Loving too
Here's to Coronado, the Comanche and the blues
Here's to the bootleggers and the oilfield crews
Here's to the one and all of us Red River fools

Chorus

Susanna oh Susanna when it comes my time
Please bury me south of that Red River line
