Ridin' Home

(Bob Nolan)

 

Sing along with the Sons of the Pioneers

 

See that lonesome cowboy ridin’ down that lonesome trail.

Moonlight shadows swayin’ to the tune of his lonesome wail.

 

Sun goes down, work’s all done,

Evenin’s here at last.

Moon comes up behind the hills I love

And I’m ridin’ home. (He's ridin' home.)

 

See that lonesome cowboy ridin’ down that lonesome trail.

Moonlight shadows swayin’ to the tune of his lonesome wail.

Well, he’s ridin’ home.

He's ridin' home.

 

Bed down, dogie, rest awhile,

I’ll be back tomorrow morn

And take you down to where the water’s cool

But now I’m ridin’ home. (He's ridin' home.)

 

See that lonesome cowboy ridin’ down that lonesome trail.

Moonlight shadows swayin’ to the tune of his lonesome wail.

Well, he’s ridin’ home.

He's ridin' home.

I'm ridin' home.

 

Bob also wrote another verse:

 

Night birds fly thru the sky

Headin’ home with me.

When they get there they’ll tell the one I love

That I’m ridin’ home.
