Title: Carryin' The News To Mary

-------------------------------------

The night hawk said

he seen the damnedest thing

it was the little blue roan

outta Billy's string

with his center fire rig and McCarthy reins

Carryin' the news to Mary

Thunder on the bed ground

cavvy got spooked

bull calf moaned

thats when the lid blew

by morning I could tell ya

there were more then a few

Carryin' the news to Mary

a prairie dog hole snags a pony's leg

buckaroo takes a fall and it claims his fate

the wild bovine grind his bones to dust

his six shooter lays on the prairie to rust

got to play your hand win lose or draw

got to take a look-see

to know what you saw

a riderless horse against a half-lit sky

is a sobering sight when the wind is high

The night hawk said

he seen the damnedest thing

it was the little blue roan

outta Billy's string

with his center fire rig and McCarthy reins

Carryin' the news to Mary

Widow woman weepin'

askin' everyone "why?"

punchers at loss for words

tears in there eyes

ol' blue standin' there pawin' at the ground

windmill groanin' is the only other sound

when a man saddles up and starts makin' tracks

ain't no way of knowin' if he's comin' back

well the night hawk said

he seen the damnedest thing

it was the little blue roan

outta Billy's string

with his center fire rig and McCarthy reins

Carryin' the news to Mary

Carryin' the news to Mary

Carryin' the news to Mary

Carryin' the news.......... to Mary
