​Sleepy Cowboy

This song is by Yonder Mountain String Band and appears on the album Old Hands (2003).

Hey Old Man, listen here
I had this dream and you were there
We were cowboys, sleepy cowboys

Above open range was miles of timber
Fix them fences you remember
Horse and the saddle, rope and leather
Ridin' through the wind and the weather
Smell the sage and see forever
Sleepy cowboy

Drive them doggies, keep 'em goin'
It's a-rainin' now but it ain't yet snowin'
Flash of lightnin', crack of thunder
Lie beneath the stars and wonder
It's a spell you have fallen under
Sleepy cowboy

Dream on, you're barely breathin'
Kill the fire--boy's we're leavin'
Horse and the saddle, rope and leather
Ridin' through the wind and the weather
Push them doggies on forever
Sleepy cowboy

Drive them doggies on forever
Sleepy cowboy
Drive them doggies on forever
Sleepy cowboy
