Stewball chords
Joan Baez (old English folk Skewball of 1741)

G Am D G C D

G         Em                 Am
Stewball was a good horse, he wore his head high,
                    D Dsus4 D                 G    C D
and the mane on his foretop, was fine as silk thread.

G      Em              Am
I rode him in England, I rode him in Spain,
                D Dsus4 D                G   C D
and I never did lose, boys, I always did gain.

G      Em              Am
So come all you gamblers, wherever you are,
                   D Dsus4 D                 G  C D
and don`t bet your money on that little grey mare.

G     Em                    Am
Most likely she`ll stumble, most likely she`ll fall,
                 D Dsus4 D                   G   C D
but never you`ll lose, boys, on my noble Stewball.

G     Em              Am
As they were a-riding, `bout halfway round,
                   D Dsus4 D                 G    C D
that grey mare she stumbled, and fell on the ground.

G     Em              Am
And way out yonder, ahead of them all,
                      D Dsus4 D             G   C D
came a-prancing and a-dancing, my noble Stewball.

G         Em                      Am
Stewball was a race horse, and by the day he was mine,
               D Dsus4 D              G  C G
he never drank water, he always drank wine.

About the artist behind Stewball Chords:

Joan Chandos Baez (born in Staten Island, NYC, USA, on January 9, 1941, to Mexican and British parents) is an American folk singer and songwriter known for her highly individual vocal style. She is a soprano with a three-octave vocal range[1] and a distinctively rapid vibrato. Many of her songs are topical and deal with social issues.

She is best known for her hit "Diamonds & Rust" and her covers of Phil Ochs's "There But For Fortune" as well as The Band's "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down", and to a lesser extent,"We Shall Overcome," "Love Is Just A Four-Letter Word" and "Farewell Angelina", as well as, "Sweet Sir Galahad," and "Joe Hill" (songs she performed at the 1969 Woodstock festival). She is also well known due to her early and long-lasting relationship with Bob Dylan and her even longer-lasting passion for activism, notably in the areas of nonviolence, civil and human rights and, in more recent years, the environment. She has performed publicly for nearly 50 years, released over 30 albums and recorded songs in at least eight languages. She is considered a folk singer although her music has strayed from folk considerably after the 1960s, encompassing everything from rock and pop to country and gospel. Although a songwriter herself, especially in the mid-1970s, Baez is most often regarded as an interpreter of other people's work, covering songs by Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Jackson Browne, Paul Simon, The Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder and myriad others. In more recent years, she has found success interpreting songs of diverse songwriters such as Steve Earle, Natalie Merchant and Ryan Adams.
