Sweat-stained Stetson, On the wall, Muddy boots, In the hall, Stand and wait, Sometimes they call, Saddle-up and ride. Spurs left hanging, On a chair, Saddle, oiled, Over there, Sit and wait, With patient care, Saddle-up and ride. Slow and quiet, Horses walk, Softly nicker, Hear them talk, Endure and wait, But never mock, Saddle-up and ride. Cowboy spirits, In the night, A haunting dance, A lonesome sight, Sway and wait, For day’s first light, Saddle-up and ride. Saddle up and ride under stars and moonlight, its the only thing that's left that's right, Saddle up and ride.
