Time For a Cowboy to Sing, Just My Rifle, My Pony and Me



Sun is sinking in the west
The cattle go down to the stream
The redwing settles in the nest
It's time for a cowboy to sing

Purple light in the canyon
that is where I long to be
With my three good companions
just my rifle my pony and me

Whippoorwill in the willow
sings a sweet melody
Riding to Amarillo
just my rifle my pony and me

No more cows to be ropin'
No more strays will I see
'round the bend she'll be waitin
For my rifle pony and me
For my rifle my pony and me
