Pete Knight's last ride (Recorded by Wilf Carter aka Montana Slim)

It seems my whole life's full of sorrow and sighs
Always something make me feel blue
For I just lost a pal like a brother to me
I still can't believe that it's true.

We were old pals on the prairie,
Many times we have rode side by side
Never dreaming a bronco would throw him
And that Pete Knight would take his last ride.

He was riding a bronco called Slowdown
Many times he had spurred his old hide
But when he left the chute fate played it's hand
That's when Pete took his last ride.

He still remains King of the Cowboys
Many times he has won world wide fame
And the millions of people who knew him
They all idolized Pete Knight's name.

Oh some day there will be a great round up on high
When the ranch boss starts combing the plains,
May our names all be square on the tally
May we meet on that heavenly range.

It seems like there should be more about the actual accident but I don't recall. I'm going back 60 plus years here.
