Lone Buckaroo

(Bob Nolan)

 

Sing Along with the Sons of the Pioneers

 

When the light of the moon is revealiní

A prairie of silver and blue,

Then a longing for someone comes stealiní

In the heart of this lone buckaroo.

 

Every night the prairie moon rolls on,

Thereís a lonely cowboy ridiní.

Seems I hear him sing a carefree song

But itís only tears heís hidiní.

 

When the light of the moon is revealiní

A prairie of silver and blue,

Then a longing for someone comes stealiní

In the heart of this lone buckaroo.

 

Bob wrote another verse to this song -

 

Far into the night I hear his song

Softly on the breezes falliní.

Even as the night bird wings along,

Vainly to his mate heís calliní.

 


* A buckaroo is another word for cowboy - the anglicized version of vaquero.
