Song Lyrics

This song appears on three albums, and was first released on the Windsong album, and has also been released on the Country Classics and The Country Roads Collection albums.

Well, I'm weary and tired, I've done my day's ridin'

Nighttime is rollin' my way

The sky's all on fire and the light's slowly fading

Peaceful and still ends the day

Out on the trail night birds are callin'

Singin' their wild melody

Down in the canyon cottonwood whispers

A Song of Wyoming for me

Well, I've wandered around the town and the city

Tried to figure the how and the why

Well, I've stopped all my schemin'

I'm just driftin' and dreamin'

Watching the river roll by

Here comes that big ole prairie moon risin'

Shinin' down bright as can be

Up on the hill there's a coyote singin'

A Song of Wyoming for me

Now it's whiskey and tobacco and bitter black coffee

A lonesome old dogie am I

But wakin' up on the range

Lord I feel like an angel

Free like I almost could fly

Drift like a cloud out over the badlands

Sing like a bird in the tree

The wind in the sage sounds like heaven singin'

A Song of Wyoming for me

A Song of Wyoming for me

Words and music by Kent Lewis
