Hi, Roberto. Well, we have COOL WATER (click) in our database.
Happy Rovin' Cowboy (click) from Cowpie (click). Also, the Cowpie rendition of tumbling Tumbelweeds (click.
Here's another for you, although the transcription isn't wonderful:

TUMBLING TUMBLEWEEDS
(Bob Nolan)

See them rolling around
Dee-da-do, da-dum
Pledging their love to the ground
Here on the range I'll be found
Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds

See them rolling along
Pledging their love with a song
Here on the range I belong
Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds

I know when day is done
That a new world awaits at dawn
See them rolling along
Pledging their love with a song
Here on the range I belong
Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds

I know when day is done
That a new world awaits at dawn
See them rolling along
Pledging their love with a song
Here on the range I belong
Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds


Seems to me there should be many more available on the Web, but I can't find 'em. Didn't have any luck finding his songs in fake books or other song books.

This is transcribed from a Sons of the Pioneers 78. Lot's more detail here. Where's Jack Palance when we need him?

TUMBLING TUMBLEWEEDS
by Bob Nolan, Sons of the Pioneers

See them tumblin' 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.

    BRIDGE
    I know, when night has gone,
    That a new world's born at dawn.

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

I'm a roving cowboy,
Riding all day long.
Tumbleweeds around me
Sing their lonely song.

    BRIDGE
    Nights underneath the prairie moon,
    I ride along and sing a tune.

    CHORUS

Hi Roberto--

You can get tons of lyrics of Bob's songs (plus everything you ever wanted to know about Bob and the Sons of the Pioneers) on Bob Nolan's website:
Click here

Outlaws is there, as well as the Last Roundup, etc. :) Bob was a songwriter like no other, he had some fabulous masterpieces! I'm more of an aficionado on Ken Carson (one of the Pioneers), myself, but the folks there on Bob's site are very knowledgeable about Bob and the rest of the Pioneers!

DUSTY SKIES
Cindy Walker

C
Dusty skies I can't see nothing in sight
F                                    C
Good old Dan you'll have to guide me right
                      F          C
If we lose our way the cattle will stray
F                      C
And we'll lose them all tonight
F                                  C
Cause all of the grass and water's gone
F                                    C
We'll have to keep the cattle moving on


Sand blowing I just can't breathe in this air
F                                    C
I thought it would soon be clear and fair
                                 F                C
But dust storms played hell with land and folks as well
F                C
Got to be moving somewhere
F                              C
Hate to leave the old ranch so bare
F                     C
I've got to be moving somewhere


Get along doggies we're moving off of this range
F                                  C
I never thought as how I'd make the change
                              F                C
The blue skies have failed so we're on our last trail
F                      C
Underneath these dusty skies
F                      C
These ain't tears in my eyes
F                         C
Just sand from these dusty skies

Bob retired from the Pioneers in 1949,but went back into the recording studio around 1978-79 to make a final LP with producer Snuff Garett;sadly passed away not too long after that.
In 1949,he was replaced by Lloyd [Tommy] Doss,who sounded uncannily
like him;he himself retired in 1963,but continued to record with the Pioneers until 1967...Doss returned to Enterprise,Oregon and just passed away this year at the age of 91....I was lucky enough to contact him in 2003,he wrote me two brief,but pleasant and informative
notes;also sent me a cassette of rare studio stuff....he was very gratified that I had contacted him;his last note thanked me for my interest and ended "it would be nice if we could meet and talk sometime".....I will always regret that I didn't take him up on that offer,but Oregon is a long way from where I am.
I personally think that,of the 40 or so men who have passed through that group,the 1949-1967 trio of Lloyd Perryman,Dale Warren and Doss was the finest male vocal group of all time....they've all passed away now,but the group continues to this day,fronted by Luther Nallie.
   With the possible exception of the Mormon Tabernacle choir,I believe the SOP is the longest extant musical group in American history....
