Dave Stamey - Night Rider's Lament Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • Graveyard shift, midnight to dawn
  • The moon was as bright as a reading light
  • For a letter from an old friend back home
  • He asked me, "Why do you ride for your money?
  • Why do you rope for short pay?
  • You ain't gettin' nowhere and you're loosin' your share
  • You must have gone crazy out there."
  • He said, "Last night I run into Jenny
  • She's married and has a good lif
  • Oh, you sure missed the track when you never come back;
  • She's the perfect professional's wife
  • She asked me, 'Why does he ride for his money?
  • Why does he rope for short pay?
  • He ain't gettin' nowhere and he's loosing his share
  • He must have gone crazy out there'"
  • But they've never seen the Northern Lights
  • Never seen the hawk on the wing
  • Never seen the spring hit the great divide
  • They've never heard old camp cookie sing
  • Well, I read up the rest of my letter
  • I tore off the stamp for Black Jim
  • Billy rode up to relieve me
  • He looked at my letter and grinned
  • He said, "Why do we ride for your money?
  • Why do we rope for short pay?
  • Ww ain't gettin' nowhere and were loosing our share
  • Oh, we all must be crazy out here
  • But they've never seen the Northern Lights
  • Never seen the hawk on the wing.
  • Never seen the spring hit the great divide
  • They've never heard old camp cookie sing
