(Way out there) A lonely spot I know where no man will go Where the shadows have all the room I was ridin' free on that old SP Humming a southern tune When a man came along made me hush my song Kicked me off away out there As she pulled out of sight, I turned to the right The left and ev'rywhere But all I could see was a cactus tree And a prairie dog playin' there I watched the prairie dog feed on the tumbleweed That's his home away out there (Piano Solo) So I threw down my load in the desert road Rested my weary legs, too I watched the sinkin' sun make the tall shadows run Out across that barren plain Then I hummed a tune to the risin' moon He gets lonesome way out there So I closed my eyes to the starlit skies And lost myself in dreams I dreamed the desert sand was a milk-and-honey land Then I awoke with a start There's a train comin' back on the one-way track Goin' to take me away from here (Guitar Solo) As she was passin' by, I caught her on the fly Climbed in an open door Then I turned around to that desert ground Saw the spot I would see no more As I was ridin' away I heard the pale moon say "Farewell pal, it sure gets lonesome here" (Way out here) (Transcribed from the Hank Snow recording by Mel Priddle - May 2010)
