Prairie In The Sky

By Mary McCaslin, Folklore Music (ASCAP)

I ride a big blue roan, I carry all I own
In the pouches of my saddle bags with my bedroll tied behind.

There's a prairie in the sky, I'll find it by and by
Hues of brown and yellow to make a soul unwind

Let the music take me home to where my heart may roam
I'll fly across the meadows, touch the tall grass as I go.

Let the gentle western wind slay with me 'til the end
Beside me 'til the day is done and the sun is settled low.

Leave the ponies to run free, far as the eye can see.
I'd ride the range forever to see them once again.

Let the wild, flying things soar above me on their wings,
And the stars fill up the night sky and the moon light up the plains.

I ride a big blue roan, I carry all I own
In the pouches of my saddle bags with my bedroll tied behind.
