Johnny rode the cowboy trail his sixguns by his side
Til his mom called it’s dinner time and time to come inside
His horse named shadow disappeared as did the evening sun
But Johnny knew that he’d be there when morning had begun
Than once again they’d ride the trails
Past tumbleweeds and dunes of sand
Across the snow capped mountains and down to the Rio Grand
Than turning wide they’s thunder home
They’d give the outlaws one more chance and shadow seemed to know.
So ride ride Johnny ride with you six guns by your side
Til mom called it’s dinner time and come in for the night.
