Lyrics

A yodel makes the sound of the moon

When it's a hundred miles away from city lights

And just out of the reach of your hands

A campfire sounds like castanets

A river, like a woman's breath

And the cowboy makes the sound of loneliness

-yodel

 

A cowboy's not a cowboy because he wants to be

He's a cowboy 'cause he can't do nothing else

A canyon's walls don't reach as high

A desert just don't seem as wide

As the main street Of some old cattle town

-yodel

 

CHORUS:

So leave some open land for the cowboy

One unbroken trail

One mountain to the sky

Leave a pretty girl

Waiting for him at the end

Of some long and dusty cattle drive

-yodel

 

A yodel makes the sound of a lone coyote

It's the way a heart sounds when it breaks

The wind is like a baby's cry

A freight train like a last goodbye

A yodel's just a lullaby

Just the way a cowboy tries

To settle with the world

-yodel
