Cowboy Jack
Dick Curless

He was just a lonely cowboy with a heart so brave and true
And he learned to love a maiden with eyes of heavens on blue
They have learned to love each other and had planned their wedding day
When a quarrel came between them and Jack he rode away

Then one night when work was finished and just at the close of day
Someone said come and sing a song Jack it will drive all cares away
And when Jack began his singing then his mind it wandered back
More he sang of his dear maiden who waited for her Jack

Jack had left the camp next morning as he breathed his sweetheart's name
I'll go back and ask forgiveness for I know that I'm to blame
But when Jack he reached the prairie there he saw a new made mound
And his friends they sadly told him they had buried his loved one down

He was just a lonely cowboy with a heart so brave and true
And he learned to love a maiden with eyes of heavens on blue
