(Mike Burton)

Cho: ...and tell me
Why do you ride for your money
Why do you rope for short pay
You ain't gettin nowhere and your loosin your share
Well you must have gone crazy out there

Well I read off the last of his letter
I tore off the stamp for black Jim
And Billy come by to relieve me,
Just looked at my letter and grinned

He said they ask ...chorus

Well they've never seen the northern lights
Never seen the hawk on the wing
Never seen the spring on the great divide
No they've never heard old camp cookie sing
