Garth Brooks - Lonesome Dove Lyrics

She was a girl on a wagon train
Headed west across the plains
The train got lost in a summer storm
They couldnÂ’t move west and they couldnÂ’t go home
Then she saw him riding through the rain
He took charge of the wagons and he saved the train
And she looked down and her heart was gone
The train went west but she stayed homeÂ….
In Lonesome Dove

A farmerÂ’s daughter with a gentle hand
A blooming rose in a bed of sand
She loved the man who wore a star
A Texas ranger known near and far
So they got married and they had a child
But times were tough and the west was wild
So it was no surprise the day she learned
That her Texas man would not return
To Lonesome Dove

Back to back with the Rio Grande
With a Christian woman in the devilÂ’s land
She learned the language and she learned to fight
But she never learned how to beat the lonely night
In Lonesome DoveÂ…Lonesome Dove

She watched her boy grow into a man
He had an angels heart and the devils hand
He wore his star for all to see
He was a Texas lawman legacy
One day word flew into town
It seemed the man that shot his father down
Had robbed a bank in Jericho
The only thing between them and Mexico
Was Lonesome Dove

The shadow stretched across the land
As the shots rang out down the rio grande
And when the smoked had finally cleared the street
The men lay at the rangers feet
The legend tells to this very day (The legend tells to this very day )
That shots were comin from an alleyway
But no one knows who held the gun
There aint no doubt if you ask someone
In Lonesome Dove

Back to back with the Rio Grande
With a Christian woman in the devils land
She learned the language and she learned to fight
But she never learned how to beat the lonely night
In Lonesome DoveÂ…Lonesome Dove
