Well, the Old Cowboy Midi Site addy I had is no good, but I was able to find the following. Is it what you're looking for? This has ebautiful imagery: wind strumming a sagebrush guitar, I cna just hear it out here in windy Wyoming!

How about you join us in the HearMe virtual song circle this Sunday, so we can hear the tune? If this is the right one that it. Just look for the thread with HearMe and Feb. 13 in the title. All the best, kat

Navajo Trail

written by Marjorie Elliot
(their line breaks, not mine)

Everyday
Along about evenin;
When the sunlight's
Beginning to fade
I ride
Through the slumbering shadows
Along
The Navajo trail
When it's night
And the crickets are calling
And the coyotes
Are making a wail
I dream
By a smouldering fire
Along
The Navajo trail
Love to lie and listen to the music
When the wind is strummin'
A sagebrush guitar
While over yonder hill
The moon is climbing
It always finds me wishin' on a star
Well whadda ya know
It's morning already
There's a dawning
So silver and pale
It's time
To climb into my saddle
Ride
The Navajo trail
Love to lie and listen to the music
When the wind is strummin'
A sagebrush guitar
While over yonder hill
The moon is climbing
It always finds me wishin' on a star
Well whadda ya know
It's morning already
There's a dawning
So silver and pale
It's time
To climb into my saddle
Ride
The Navajo trail
It's time
To climb into my saddle
Ride
The Navajo trail

then there is this one,which seems similair:

Along The Navajo Trail
Bing Crosby & The Andrews Sisters
- written by Larry Markes, Dick Charles and Eddie DeLange - introduced in the musical film "Along the Navajo Trail" - as recorded June 29, 1945 in Los Angeles by The Andrews Sisters with Bing Crosby and Vic Schoen & His Orchestra.

Every day, along about evening
When the sunlight's beginning to pale
I ride through the slumbering shadows
Along the Navajo Trail

When it's night and crickets are callin'
And coyotes are makin' a wail
I dream by a smoldering fire
Along the Navajo Trail

I love to lie and listen to the music
When the wind is strummin' a sagebrush guitar
When over yonder hill the moon is climbin'
It always finds me wishin' on a star

Well whatta ya know, it's mornin' already
There's the dawnin', so silver and pale
It's time to climb into my saddle
And ride the Navajo Trail

I love to lie and listen to the music
When the wind is strummin' a sagebrush guitar
When over yonder hill the moon is climbin'
It always finds me wishin' on a star

Well whatta ya know, it's mornin' already
There's the dawnin', so silver and pale (like a silvery veil)
It's time to climb into my saddle
And ride the Navajo Trail
Ride the Navajo Trail
Ride the Navajo Trail

Oh, MMario, that's probably the right one. It sounds familiar. Oh, well, I still thing the sagebrush strumming wind-guitar is great poetry!

Isn't the melody that accompanies the first set of lyrics based on Ferde Grofe's Grand Canyon Suite, specifically the passage titled "On the Trail?"

Subject: Grofe - themes in Grand Canyon Suite
From: Joe Offer
Date: 20 Aug 04 - 01:53 PM

The "Grand Canyon Suite" question is a good one. Grofe used themes that seem like cowboy songs - but I don't think I recognize any of them.
There are five parts to "Grand Canyon Suite" (are parts of a suite called "movements"?) - the five are Sunrise, Painted Desert, On the Trail (not Navajo Trail), Sunset, Cloudburst. "On the Trail" has a very distinctive melody that sounds like a silver-screen cowboy song, but I don't think it is a real song.
This page (click) has the story of the Wisconsin roots of "Grand Canyon Suite." Hey, I didn't know that....

Lyrics given by MMario are correct. I believe Bing Crosby repeated the last two verses (starting 'I love to lie....'.
