Cowboy - Along The Navajo Trail 2 (Chords)
I have two versions of this tune.The first one is the actual key the tune is
recorded in by Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters on Decca records (1945).
The second one I will send is the way my grandfather played it as a musician
in the midwest (30-50's);
The original key is in Eb.
Along the Navajo Trail
By Larry Marks, Dick Charles, Eddie Lange
Every (Eb) day, a- (Bb7+) long about (Eb) ev'ning;
(Bb7+) When the (Eb) sunlight 's be- (Bb7+) gining to (Eb) fail,
I (Ab7)ride... through the slumberin' shadows
(Bb7) A- (Eb) long the Navajo Trail
(Bb7) When it's (Eb) night and (Bb7+) crickets are (Eb) callin';
(Bb7+)And co-(Eb) yotes are (Bb7+) makin' a (Eb) wail
(Eb7) I (Ab7) dream by a smolderin' (Ab7) fire
(Bb7)A- (Eb)long the (Ab) Navajo (Eb) Trail
I (Ab) love to lie and (Abm6) to the (Eb) music
(Eb7) When the wind is strummin' a (Abm) sagebrush guitar
When (Gm) over yonder (D7) hill the moon is (Gm) climbin'
(C9) It (F7) always finds me(B9) wishin' on a (Bb9) star
Well (Bb7-) what do you (Eb) know?
It's (Bb7+) morning al- (Eb) ready ,
(Bb7+) There's the (Eb) dawnin' so (Bb7+) silver and (Eb) pale,
It's (Ab7) time to climb into my saddle
(Bb7) And (Eb) ride the (Ab) Navajo (Eb) Trail (Bb7+);
(back to top)
----ending on last time through is
.....(Eb)Trail; Mm (Ab7) mm (Abm) mm (Eb)mm, mm, (Ab7) mm
The Navajo (Eb) Trail!
