Lyrics

Those wide open spaces they’ve got me
The howling of the lone wolf is my song
A single campfire light
out on a moonlit night
is all this lonesome cowboy needs

And when the morning comes
it will be time for movin’ on
I’ll follow the sun another day
Not carin' where I go
I’m searching for old El Paso
I hear there’s high dollars on the rodeo

I don’t cry those tears the way I used to
or lay awake at night and wonder why
you left me for that gamblin' man who used you
and lost you in a game whose stakes weren’t high

I don’t cry those tears the way I used to
So if you love someone who can’t be satisfied
Just saddle up your pony one clear morning
and ride off to greet the coming night
