Saddle the Sun

(Bob Nolan - Tim Spencer)

 

Sing along with the Sons of the Pioneers

 

Iím gonna throw my saddle on the blaziní sun,

Gonna jump a-straddle, watch him roll and run,

Then forget the battle that my life begun,

Blaze a trail for you to follow when Iíve saddled the sun.

Then weíll ride the ranges up in the sky,

Watch the world below go stumbling by.

We may be short of cattle but thereís lots of fun.

Mark your worries with an outlaw brand and saddle the sun.

 

Iíve been trailiní happiness all my whole life through.

Heís hard to find, sometimes, I guess, so this is what Iíll have to doÖ.

 

Iím gonna throw my saddle on the blaziní sun,

Gonna jump a-straddle, watch him roll and run,

Then forget the battle that my life begun,

Blaze a trail for you to follow when Iíve saddled the sun.

Then weíll ride the ranges up in the sky,

Let the world below go stumbling by.

We may be short of cattle but thereís lots of fun.

Mark your worries with an outlaw brand and up and saddle the sun.

 

NB: Bob wrote one more verse to the song:

 

When a dark cloud dims the day, hereís a thought Iíll shareó

Remember when he rolls away, the sun will still be shininí there.
