DESERT SILVERY BLUE
Desert silvery blue beneath the pale moonlight
Coyotes yapping lazily on the hill
Sleepy winks of dawn across the far skyline
Time for millin' cattle to be still.
Cho: So now the lightning's far away
The coyotes nothin' skeery,
just singing to his dearie
Yo ho tomon a holiday
So settle down ye cattle til the mornin'.
Nothing out there on the plains that you folks need
Nothing there that seems to catch your eye
Still you got to watch them or they'll all stampede
Plunging down some lonely bank to die.
Always dreamin' dreams of far off silvery blue
Always feelin' thorns that stab and sting
Still stampedin' never made a dream come true
So I'll ride around the range and sing.
