Riding Down The Canyon

This song is by Ramblin' Jack Elliott and appears on the album Kerouac's Last Dream (1981) and on the album Friends Of Mine (1998).

This song is a cover of "Ridin' Down the Canyon" by Gene Autry.
When evening chores are over at the ranch house on the plains
And there's nothing left to do but lay around
I'll saddle up my pony and go riding down the trail
Just to watch the desert sun go down

White faced cattle lowing, sagebrush everywhere
Granite spires are standing all around
I'll tell you boys it's heaven to go ridin' down the trail
Just to watch the desert sun go down

Ridin' down the canyon to watch the sun go down
A picture that no artist here could paint
Cactus plants are bloomin' on the mountain side
I hear a coyote calling to it's mate

White faced cattle lowing, sagebrush everywhere
Granite spires are standing all around
I'll tell you boys it's heaven to go ridin' down the trail
Just to watch the desert sun go down

When evening chores are over at the ranch house on the plains
And there's nothing left to do but lay around
I'll saddle up my pony and go riding down the trail
Just to watch the desert sun go down

White faced cattle lowing, sagebrush everywhere
Granite spires are standing all around
I'll tell you boys it's heaven to go ridin' down the trail
Just to watch the desert sun go down

Just to watch the desert sun go down
