[Verse 1]
                         C          G
First time old Dood laid eyes on Juani
                    D           G
Knew then and there she was the one
                          C               G
She gave him a love every man knows is needed
                             D          G
She gave him a daughter, she gave him a son

[Verse 2]
                          C          G
One day, when Juanita was out on the garden
                         D        G
A bandit rode up without makin' a sound
                                C              G
Dood was workin' the plow, far away from his rifle
                           D           G
Tried to get to it but the bandit drew down

[Verse 3]
     C                       G
Last thing he remembered was Juanita's screamin'
                                           D
As the world faded black and Dood crumpled down
        G                      C             G
When he came to the bandit was nowhere to be seen
                        D           G
His true love Juanita nowhere to be found

[Chorus]
C                    G
Man and his rifle, a mule and his hound
                   D          G
One in the saddle, one on the ground

[Verse 4]
                                C                 G
Saw the ball had passed through clean as a church floor
                               D            G
And the wound was washed up by Sam, his old hound
                              C              G
So he saddled up Shamrock and powdered his rifle
                          D             G
Put on his old hat, worn, weathered and brown

[Verse 5]
         C                        G
Told his son to stay strong, take care of his sister
                                      D
'Til Daddy returned with Mam safe and sound
          G                   C          G
Then they set out together to go find Juani
                        D          G
Old Dood in the saddle, Sam on the ground
                             D        G
Vowin' never to stop 'til Juanita was found

[Chorus]
C                    G
Man and his rifle, a mule and his hound
                   D          G
One in the saddle, one on the ground

[Outro]
                   D          G
One in the saddle, one on the ground
