OLD CHEYENNE (Ian Tyson) Ian Tyson - 1987 The band would play the anthem And the clowns fell down in jest All the people saw again The winning of the west Our stomachs full of nothing And our hearts were full of hopes As we buckled on our leggings And we rosined up our ropes And we started going down the road In the spring of '74 If I had me another trade I wouldn't ride them bulls no more Since Charlie died I tried to forget That day in old Cheyenne Betty leave your lights on darlin' I'm going to make it if I can Cause it gets inside your blood It gets inside your mind The only way of life There ain't no other kind All my thoughts roll back to you I hope you'll understand Betty leave your lights on darlin' Going to make it if I can The place that's known as Cheyenne Is called the daddy of them all The one our fathers sang about At the round-ups in the fall When Charlie drew that spinning bull Lord everything went wrong Got him in an ambulance Left me here to sing this song And I've kept right on a going But I drink before I ride That bottle brings me courage I believe I'm damn near out of pride I think I'd get me a factory job If you'd help me make my stand Betty leave your lights on darlin' Going to make it if I can Cause it gets inside your blood It gets inside your mind The only way of life There ain't no other kind All my thoughts roll back to you I hope you'll understand Betty leave your lights on darlin' Going to make it if I can
