When The Cimarron Was Red And On The Rise (Album Version) - Red Steagall (瑞德·史提格)

Riding back to texas

From a drive to abilene

 

With the wagon

The remuda and the crew

 

The cimarron was boiling red and rising

By the hour

It was suicide to push the horses through

 

Cotty bill was pining by his darling Anna Lee

 

He left her crying back in san anton

 

A thousand times he red the note he carried in

His jeans

 

Cotty darling won't you hurry home

 

But trailing longhorn cattle is a life at

Wild and free

 

And the prairie is a puncher's paradise

 

But it was dark and deadly in the spring of '83

 

When the cimarron was red and on the rise

 

We were at the wagon

Playin' cards and

Tellin' lies

 

When he announced that he was goin' on

 

We told him he was crazy

He would never make it through

But cotty smiled and saddled up the roan

 

Then I made him a promise

I'd look after anna lee

 

In case he didn't make it through the night

 

He turned his collar to the wind and bid us adios

 

And whistling dixie he ruled out of sight

 

And trailing longhorn cattle is a life at

Wild and free

 

But the devil is playing hell in paradise

 

'Cause it was dark and deadly in the spring of '83

 

When the cimarron was red and on the rise

 

It was nearly seven days before we got across

 

The roan was in the shadow of a hill

 

He was skinned from head to toe and covered

Up with mud

 

But there was not a sign of cotty bill

 

Oh I guess we knew that he was gone

When we looked anyhow

 

The road for a mile and searched on either side

 

We combed the brush and dragged our ropes in

Every waterhole

 

But cotty bill had taken his last ride

 

And I kept my promise and I married anna lee

 

And the boy we're raising has his daddy's eyes

 

Someday I'll tell him more about the spring of '83

 

When the cimarron was red and on the rise

 

'Cause it was dark and deadly in the spring of '83

 

When the cimarron was red and on the rise
