Song of Wyoming Lyrics

Artist: John Denver
Album: Country Roads Collection

This song appears on three albums, and was first released on the Windsong album, and has also been released on the Country Classics and The Country Roads Collection albums.

Well, Im weary and tired, Ive done my days ridin
Nighttime is rollin my way
The skys all on fire and the lights slowly fading
Peaceful and still ends the day
Out on the trail night birds are callin
Singin their wild melody
Down in the canyon cottonwood whispers
A Song of Wyoming for me

Well, Ive wandered around the town and the city
Tried to figure the how and the why
Well, Ive stopped all my schemin
Im just driftin and dreamin
Watching the river roll by
Here comes that big ole prairie moon risin
Shinin down bright as can be
Up on the hill theres a coyote singin
A Song of Wyoming for me

Now its whiskey and tobacco and bitter black coffee
A lonesome old dogie am I
But wakin up on the range
Lord I feel like an angel
Free like I almost could fly
Drift like a cloud out over the badlands
Sing like a bird in the tree
The wind in the sage sounds like heaven singin
A Song of Wyoming for me
A Song of Wyoming for me

This is one of the most beautiful songs I have heard in a long time. I start every morning here at work in Texas with this song and it always brightens my day. Thank you for posting these lyrics Kent. Unfortunatly, i am not from Wyoming but have visited and the moment I arrived I felt at home. The Tetons, cool air, and wilderness welcomed me with open arms. Thank you John Denver for this beautiful song and reminder of the most besutiful place in America!

Been a John Denver fan since, well, a long time, smile. This song has been drifting in and out of my mind all week.

I am a born and raised California girl, but have traveled through out North America. This song has always touched me, and like the changing sunset, it means different things to me in different times. I am soon going to be taking off on another long trip, mostly by train. So this song will be in my heart for all those lonely sacred places we all need to visit sometimes. If only to remember what is important to us. Thank you Kent for this gorgeous song and reminder.

I'm not a great John Denver fan, but I have to say this song has touched my heart. I forgot all the lyrics except for the last verse and I've been singing it to myself. I'm glad that now I know the whole song. Awesome!! I wish I were a cowboy!! :)

John Denver songs are amazing.
I have been to Wyoming many times on vacation. I know places change but if you have ever hiked in or fished in the Rockies you know what he is singing about.
