Lyrics

(Dimitri Tiomkin / Paul Francis Webster)

The sun is sinking in the west
The cattle go down to the stream
The redwing settle in their nest
Its time for a cowboy to sing.

Purple light in the canyon
That's where I long to be
With my three good companions
Jus' my rifle, my pony and me.

Whiporwill in the willow
Sings a sweet melody
Ridin' to Amarillo
Jus' my rifle, my pony and me.

--- Instrumental ---

No more cows to be ropin'
Nor more strays will I see
'Round the bend she'll be waitin'
For my rifle, my pony and me.

For my rifle, my pony and me...
