Texas Plains

This song is by Don Edwards and appears on the album West of Yesterday (1996).

Every night in my dreams somehow it seems
That I'm back where I belong
I'm just an old cow hen from Rio Grande
Back where I was born

Now the city lights and the city ways
They are drivin' me insane
I wanna be alone, I wanna be back home
Back on the Texas plains

I wanna drink my java from an old tin can
While the moon goes climbin' high
I wanna hear the call of a whippoorwill
I wanna hear a coyote cry

I wanna feel my saddle horse between my legs
Riding him out on the range
Just to kick him in the sides make him show his step and pride
Back on the Texas plains

I wanna hear the thunder as it booms and rolls
I wanna feel the rain in my face
Just a thousand miles from the city lights
Drawin' a cowboys ways

I wanna sleep at night beneath the stars above
While the moon goes climbin' high
I wanna cook my coffee over cactus coves
Fifty miles from town

Out on the Texas plains
