​Some Things Never Change

This song is by Chris LeDoux and appears on the album After the Storm (2002).

Rising times at five
The red sun is still sleeping
My pillow is my saddle
Stars are my ceiling
My cold body's ackin'
I got a young cold needin' breaking
But you know I can't complain
Thank God some thing's never change

There is a storm somewhere that's brewin'
'Cause these old bones are creakin'
The cows will soon be down
And that ole roof's a-leakin'
Got a truck that needs attendin'
And some fences needin' mendin'
And I know it must sound strange
But thank God some thing's never change

They fenced in all the free land
And the old wells run the range
Long gone are the cattle drives
Since they brought in the trains
But the hard work and the friendships still remain
Thank God some thing's never change

Out here where nature rules
Each day is a different battle
And it still takes a man
Working in the saddle
No machine can break a bay
Or bringing in a lonely stray
So I guess I will remain
Thank God some thing's never change

They fenced in all the free land
And the old wells run the range
Long gone are the cattle drives
Since they brought in the trains
But the hard work and the friendships still remain
Thank God some thing's never change

Yeah, it looks like this old cowboy will remain
(Oh, buddy, thank God for that)
Thank God some thing's never change
