Some Old Cowboy Song

THEY TELL ME YOU DIDN’T SUFFER MUCHYOUR LIFE JUST WOUND ON DOWNTHE LANTERN IN YOUR HEART WENT DARKIN YOUR CABIN OUTSIDE OF TOWNNOW I’M SITTING HERE IN A STATIONWAITING FOR A TRAINAND THE MORNING AIR IS DAMP AND COOLWITH THE COMING OF THE RAIN
YOU LOVED ME CRAZY WHEN WE WERE YOUNGYOUR PASSION LED ME ASTRAYUNTIL A RESTLESS MIND AND A TROUBLED HEARTCARRIED ME SO FAR AWAYNOW I’LL WALK DOWN YOUR LONELY STREETTO A HOME I’VE BARELY KNOWNTO LAY THE LOVE I CARRIED AWAYTHERE BEFORE YOUR STONE
I’LL BE COUNTING ALL THE STARS IN THE HEAVENS TONIGHTAS MY NIGHT SKY FALLS APARTIT’S EASIER TO CATCH A FALLING STARTHEN TO MEND THIS BROKEN HEARTTHERE WILL BE A NEW STAR SHINING IN THE DARK SKY TONIGHTA BEACON FOR ALL TO SEEAND I HOPE IT LIGHTS THE WAY BACK HOME FOR A BETTER MAN THAN ME
AND THE ROAD IT WINDS FOREVER ONLIKE WORN OUT RECORD SKIPPINGON SOME OLD COWBOY SONGBUT THE WORDS ALWAYS SEEM TO COME OUT WRONGUNTIL I WOKE UP THIS MORNINGJUST TO FIND OUT THAT YOU’RE GONE
AND THE ROAD IT WINDS FOREVER ONUNTIL I WOKE UP THIS MORNINGJUST TO FIND OUT THAT YOU’RE GONE
