Navajo Wrangler

This song is by Chris LeDoux and appears on the album Western Tunesmith (1979).

Between Gallup and Ship Rock he was born in a Hogan
And his spirit was free as an eagle flies
Deep in the canyons out in Arizona
He broke his first pony before he turned five

He learned how to hide in the branches of the pinions
The young riders herded the wild horses by
Then quick as a bobcat he closed in the willows
And a new crop of Mustangs were waitin' inside

He's a Navajo wrangler, an Indian cowboy
Bridles and saddles just get in his way
There ain't another on the whole reservation
Like the Navajo wrangler from Canyon de Chay

He never breaks horses with his spurs or a saddle
Just uses a blanket and a firm gentle hand
He's known far and wide from Chinle to Red Rock
Ain't a horse he can't ride on the Navajo land

He's a Navajo wrangler, an Indian cowboy
Bridles and saddles just get in his way
There ain't another on the whole reservation
Like the Navajo wrangler from Canyon de Chay

He's a Navajo wrangler, an Indian cowboy
Bridles and saddles just get in his way
There ain't another on the whole reservation
Like the Navajo wrangler from Canyon de Chay
