Subject: RE: Song Lyrics

Welcome to the Mudcat. Yes, I know that feeling very well. We feel your pain, let us ease it. Tumbling Tumbleweeds is the name of the song. Here are the lyrics:

By Bob Nolan

I'm a roaming cowboy, riding all day long
Tumbleweeds around me sing their lonely song.
Nights underneath a prairie moon,
I ride alone and sing a tune.

See them tumbling down,
Pledging their love to the ground,
Lonely but free I'll be found
Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds.

Cares of the past are behind,
Nowhere to go but I'll find
Just where the trail will wind,
Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds.

I know when night has gone that a new world's born at dawn,

I'll keep rolling along,
Deep in my heart is a song,
Here on the range I belong,
Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds.


Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds.

Snowbird, you must be new here, so let me show you some of the ropes. This was an easy request. I believe Roy Rogers did this with the Sons of the Pioneers. That led me to seek the lyrics on a website that has a great database of Country and Western songs called COWPIE. I looked for Tumbleweeds and it came right up.

When you want help with a song, you get better responses if your thread title talks about the song (alleged title, artist, or keywords). This draws the interest of those who might not otherwise look at your thread. For your request I would have used the title "LYR REQ: Tumblin' Tumbleweeds".

The Mudcat has a database of over 6,000+ songs in the folk or blues vein. You can search this database by going to the upper-right-hand corner of this page and using the search engine. I was not surprised that this song is not in the database, to me it is pure country.

Again, welcome to the Mudcat. You might want to browse some of the other threads. We think Max has provided a nice place for us here.

Enjoy the music!
