Cowboy Lyrics
LOVE AND DEATH {A Cowboy's Thoughts)
I'm camping here alone tonight,
And thoughts like ghosts all sad and pale, Rise up to haunt my heart and drift
Along the twisting mem'ry trail. Her sweet, sad smile, her tender voice,
The softness of her cheek and hand. But she is gone, Oh, tell me where 1
What trail leads out into that land?
She used to say that every star,
Was some dear soul whose work was done, And in that peaceful range above,
God night-herd stands on every one. My soul just cries but yet those stars,
No look of love or longing wearó Oh, tell me, is there answer to
That never-ending question, "Where ?"
And still the stars look coldly down,
As cold and solemn as can be; They never smile and her kind eyes,
Forever held a smile for me. Up in the brakes a lone wolf howls,
In long-drawn quavers mournfully; And then the silence and the stars,
Make mock of wolf and mock of me.
[174]
