A true story about a dog that lived near the railroad station in Shawnee Ok.

lyrics

Intro C F# G E A 7 D7 G7 G7
Verse E7 A7 D7 G7
This here’s the story ‘bout Sante Fe Bo. Old stray dog I used to know
E7 A7 D7 G7
He’s always ready to ride those rails, while other dogs just chase their tails
C F# G E A 7 D7
Got no worries, got no cares, Sante Fe Bob don’t pay no fairs
E7 A7 D7 B7
He heard the cattle from pen to car, and in the morning hop a train.
C F# G E A 7 D7 G7 G7
The brakeman saw him in San Antone’ conductor saw him last in Santa Fe.

Solo over Intro
One day through town came a boxcar of sheep. Santa Fe Bo jumped to his feet.
Always eager to ply his trade. Fell beneath the wheel and lost his leg.
But he’s got no worries got no cares. Santa Fe Bo he don’t despair.
Even though he may have lost his step. The trains keep calling him to ride.
The brakeman saw him in San Antone’ conductor saw him last in Santa Fe. Aww Bo!

Solo over Verse

Then one day came Heavens train, And ole Bo was on his way.
A brass casket is his box car now. Riding deep beneath the rails.
But he’s got no worries, got no cares, Santa Fe Bo is always there.
All the rail road men from far and wide, tend his grave when they go by.
When you hear that whistle blow, You can hear Santa Fe Bo
The brakeman saw him in San Antone’ conductor saw him last in Santa Fe.
