There is a young cowboy he lives on the range
His horse and his cattle are his only companions
He works in the saddle
and he sleeps in the canyons
Waiting for summer, his pastures to change

And as the moon rises he sits by his fire
Thinking about women and glasses of beer
And closing his eyes as the doggies retire
He sings out a song which is soft but its clear
As if maybe someone could hear

Goodnight you moonlight ladies
Rockabye sweet baby james
Deep greens and blues are the colors I choose
Wont you let me go down in my dreams
And rockabye sweet baby james

Now the first of December
was covered with snow
And so was the turnpike
from stockbridge to boston
Lord, the berkshires seemed dream-like
on account of that frosting
With ten miles behind me
and ten thousand more to go

Theres a song that they sing
when they take to the highway
A song that they sing when they take to the sea
A song that they sing of their home in the sky
Maybe you can believe it if it helps you to sleep
But singing works just fine for me
