LIGHTS OF OLD SANTA FE
Title song from the film "Lights Of Old Santa Fe" (1944)
Roy Rogers & Dale Evens (Film Soundtrack) - 1944
Just as the shadows fall
When night seems to cover all
>From the hills you see 'em shinin'
BOTH: See the lights of old Santa Fe
Evenin' breeze blows the leaves around
While the brook lends a gentle sound
ROY: And this cowboy's heart is pinin'
BOTH: For the lights of old Santa Fe
ROY: For maybe when the roundup's over
DALE: That's when you'll be fancy free
And there's a chance I'll be in clover
If a certain Miss is waitin' there for me
(DALE: Well, we'll see)
ROY: There I'll stay
DALE: Never more to roam?
ROY: Just a shack
But we'll call it home
And we'll find our silver linin'
In the lights of old Santa Fe
