Total plays on over the last 6 months
    See them tumbling down,
    Pledging their love to the ground!
    Lonely, but free, I'll be found,
    Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds

    All day I've faced the barren waste
    Without the taste of water, cool water
    Old Dan and I with throats burned dry
    And souls that cry for water, cool, clear water

    An old cowpoke went riding out one dark and windy day,
    Upon a ridge he rested as he went along his way,
    When all at once a mighty herd of red-eyed cows he saw,
    A ploughin' through the ragged skies
    And up a cloudy draw.

    I'm gonna preach you all a sermon
    About Old Man Atom, that's me

    I don't mean the Adam that Mother Eve elated

    A lonely spot, I know where no man will go
    Where the shadows have all the room
    I was ridin' free on the old SP
    Humming a southern tune
    When a man came along made me hush my song
