Rio Bravo – My Rifle, My Pony, and Me (1959)

, , Leave a comment


The sun is sinking in the west
The cattle go down to the stream The redwing settles in the nest
It’s time for a cowboy to dream Purple light in the canyons
That’s where I long to be With my three good companions
Just my rifle, pony and me Gonna hang my sombrero
On the limb of a tree Comin´ home sweetheart darlin´ Just my rifle, pony and me Whippoorwill in the willow
Sings a sweet melody Riding to (riding to) Amarillo (Amarillo)
Just my rifle, pony and me No more cows (no more cows) to be ropened
(to be ropened) No more strays will I see
Round the bend (round the bend) she’ll be waitin´ (she’ll be waitin´)
For my rifle, pony and me For my rifle, my pony and me
