Subject: Night Rider's Song
From: GUEST,DanEvergreen
Date: 05 Jan 01 - 04:13 PM

I can't quite get the tune down, and if I had the right chords, it might come to me. This is the cowboy song that Don Edwards sings as a medly;but I just want to learn the Night Rider's Song. ("When wrk is all finished, suppertime's gone, I'll tell you a story about the night rider's song..., etc.") I appreciate your help.

Thanks, M., but this is a different song. I love Night Rider's Lament; but this is Night Rider's Song. It did not come up in the DT.

We never did get lyrics or chords for this, which is NOT "Night Rider's Lament."

The title is buggered up. :Lyrics and chords here from www.cowboylyrics.com/tabs/edwards-don/ chant-of-the-night-songs-6343.html

Artist: Don Edwards Tabs/Chords
Song: Chant Of The Night Songs


CHANT OF THE NIGHT SONGS
(Don Edwards)
3/4

(C) When days work is over and (Dm7) supper times gone
I'll (G7) tell you a story of the (C) night riders song
That (F) long lonesome (G) whistle and (C) tunes with no (Am) words
The (F) chat of the night (G7) songs we sang round the (C) herd

Cattle on the bed ground and I hope that they'll stay
Till we're back on the trail at the breakin' of day
But until dawn I hope that they'll sleep
Rest easy weary cattle to the cowboys melody

My trusty little night horse he's gentle and smart
He's heard my songs so much he knows em by heart
The creak of the saddle a loose bridle rein
His hooves keepin' time to poor Liza Jane

Got to keep the herd settled don't want no stampede
Two thousand runnin' steers is what I don't need
Cause lightning and longhorns ain't no kind of game
It's sure hell for leather through the thunder and rain

What keeps the herd from runnin' stampedin' far and wide
The night riders moan and the Texas lullaby
In all kinds of weather the lonely night through
The chant of the night songs the night riders blues

Now the days of the range ridin' cowboy are gone
The lonely night rider has sung his last song
That long lonesome whistle and tunes with no words
The chant of the night songs no more to be heard

"The title is buggered up"

Sorry, That's an expression I used. Didn't mean for it to sound dismissive or 'nasty'. BTW, what helped greatly was '("When wrk is all finished, suppertime's gone, I'll tell you a story about the night rider's song..., etc.")' from Dan E. As usual, the more info a guy/gal provides, the easier things become.

LYRICS ADD

I don't know how to tell the lyric adders to add lyrics. Hope someone sees this.
    The usual way is to put ADD and the song title in the "subject" box of the message you're posting. If you forget, it's no big deal. The Clones and I add 'em as we see 'em. Specifics on song posting can be found in the FAQ.
    So, is the title "Chant of the Night Songs"?
