​Song of Wyoming

This song is by Chris LeDoux and appears on the album Old Cowboy Heroes (1980).

I'm weary and tired, I've done my day's ridin'
Nighttime is rollin' my way
The sky's all on fire, the light's slowly fading
Peaceful and still ends the day

And out on the trail night birds are callin'
Singin' their wild melody
Down in the canyon the cottonwood whispers
A song of Wyoming for me

I've wandered around the town and the city
Tried to figure the how and the why
I've stopped all my schemin', I'm just driftin' and dreamin'
Watching the river roll by

Here comes that big ole prairie moon risin'
Shinin' down bright as can be
And up on the hill the coyote's singin'
A song of Wyoming for me

Now it's whiskey and tobacco and bitter black coffee
A lonesome old doggie am I
Wakin' up on the range, Lord, I feel like an angel
Free like I almost could fly

Drift like a cloud out over the badlands
Sing like a bird in a tree
The wind through the sage sounds like heaven singin'
A song of Wyoming for me
A song of Wyoming for me
