Ode To Cowboy Jack LyricsArtist: Stonewall Jackson
Album: The Great Old Songs
Jack was a lonely cowboy with a heart so brave and true
He learned to love a maiden with eyes of heavens on blue
They learned to love each other and planned their wedding day
Then a quarrel came between them and Jack he rode away
He joined a band of cowboys and tried to forget her name
But out on the lonely prairie she waits for him just the same
Your sweetheart waits for you Jack your sweetheart waits for you
Out on the lonely prairie where the skies are always blue
One night when work was finished just after close of day
A boy said sing a song Jack it'll drive your cares away
When he began his singing his mind still wandered back
To the only fair haired maiden still waitin' for her Jack
Well Jack woke up next morning just at the dawn of the day
He said a last forgiveness I pray I'm not too late
When he reached down next evening he found a new grave mound
His friends all sadly told him we've laid your loved one down
They said that she was dying she softly breathed your name
And that just with her last breath to tell you that you came
Your sweetheart waits for you Jack...
