Cow Patty
By Jim Stafford

         Am                                        C/B           C
From the badlands came the killer, he lived by his knife and the gun
     D                G                                      Am
He'd cut you just for standing and shoot you if you tried to run
          Am                                                      C/B     C
He was as big as a tree and did what he pleased and everything he did was bad
     G                   G                           Am
They said, if you was to kill him it'd only make him mad

From the goodlands came the cowgirl, Patti was her name
She was hot on the trail of that killer on a moped she called Flame
'Cause the killer had killed her daddy just for spittin' in the road
And you only had to kill her daddy once to get that gal p.o.'d

C        G       C  
Yippee-i-ay, Cow Patti.
C        G       C 
Yippee-i-ay, Cow Patti.
G                              Em                  Am
She rode into town to find the man that killed her daddy
C        G       Am
Yippee-i-ay, Cow Patti.

The killer hit town at daybreak, ate the door off the local saloon
He started to drink, you could tell there'd be a showdown soon
Patti hit town in a cloud of dust, Old Flame was buzzin' like a saw
And the whole town got quiet as a church when the killer stepped out for the draw

Forty shots rang out, forty people fell
Patti and the killer missed each other but they shot the town to hell


The killer took a step toward Patti, said, "It's time I gunned you down"
But he slipped in something that was laying in the street and was shot before he hit the ground
Yes, the killer slipped and it cost him his life and Patti said, as she raced out of town
"You got to watch your step, when you know the chips are down."
