Goodbye To The Plains

print

Goodbye to the pals of the prairie
Goodbye to the pals of the plains
Goodbye to the dash and the danger
Goodbye to the heartaches and pains

Goodbye to my faithful old pony
Take care of him, boys, when I go
I’m riding away on life’s roundup
Away to where the sun sinks low

Goodbye to the whoop-rushing cattle
Goodbye to the clanking of spurs
Goodbye to the laugh and the chatter
Goodbye to the wildlife and steers

Goodbye to the dawning’s first blushes
That fair in the east faintly glow
I’m riding away on life’s roundup
Away to where the sun sinks low

Goodbye to the girls and the boys
Goodbye to all of my friends
Goodbye to the dear girl, my sweetheart
For I know this is my end

For the pale rider comes with his summons
And I’m willing and ready to go
For I’m riding away on life’s roundup
Away to where the sun sinks low
