​Leaving Cheyenne

This song is by Ramblin' Jack Elliott and appears on the album I Stand Alone (2006).

Goodbye Old Paint
I'm leaving Cheyenne
Goodbye Old Paint
I'm a-leaving Cheyenne

Leaving Cheyenne
I'm bound for Montana
Goodbye Old Paint
I'm a-leaving Cheyenne

Paint's a good pony
She paces when she can

Old Bill Jones had two daughter and a son
One went to college, the other went wrong
Wife she got killed in a pool room fight
Still he keeps singing from morning to night

Ride around, them dogies, ride around them slow
They're fiery and they're snuffy and they're raring to go

Goodbye Old Paint
I'm a-leaving Cheyenne
Goodbye Old Paint
I'm a-leaving Cheyenne

Leaving Cheyenne
I'm bound for Montana
Goodbye Old Paint
I'm a-leaving Cheyenne
