GUEST,John from "Elsie`s Band" Christmas song... where's yours? (38) RE: Christmas song... where's yours? 27 Dec 11


Since I don`t do MYSPACE I only have the song mp3 form so cannot upload but the lyrics are as follows:-

"THE COWBOYS CHRISTMAS"

When it`s Christmas in the mountains,
And the skies are dark and grey.
The lonesome wolf is howling,
Because the night`s not far away.
There`s not much to lift the spirits
Of a rider on his own.
Or to bring him peace and comfort,
As the storm moves quickly in.

And when it`s Christmas in the valley,
How that Northern wind can blow.
Enough to chill him to the bone
Although it never snows.
Just a rock to give him shelter,
That don`t amount to much.
He`d rather have another coat,
Than the kindest Christmas wish.

And when it`s Christmes on the range.
And the long horn cattle stir.
There`s no time to think of Jesus,
Or carols round the fire.
The herd demands attention.
They sense trouble on the breeze.
And it don`t take much to spook them,
And bring on a stampede.

But when it`s Christmas in the bunkhouse,
With the horses bedded down.
The log stove`s burning brightly,
With the riders gathered round.
The cook knocks up a special,
While the boss hands round their pay.
They quietly reminisce the year.
That`s the cowboys Christmas day.
