OLD PAINT - LEAVIN' CHEYENNE
traditional

I ride old paint I lead old dan
I'm goin' to Montana to throw the hoolihan
They sleep in the coolies, they water in the draw
They're tails are all matted, their backs are all raw

Goodbye old paint I'm a-leavin' Cheyenne
Goodbye old paint I'm a-leavin' Cheyenne
I'm leavin' Cheyenne and goin' to Montana
Goodbye old paint I'm a-leavin' Cheyenne

Old Bill Brown had two daughters and a son
One went to Denver and the other went wrong
His wife she died in a poolroom fight
And still she keeps singing morning till night

Goodbye old paint I'm a-leavin' Cheyenne
Goodbye old paint I'm a-leavin' Cheyenne
I'm leavin' Cheyenne and goin' to Montana
Goodbye old paint I'm a-leavin' Cheyenne

Well, when I die, take my saddle from the wall
Put it on my pony and lead him from his stall
Tie my bones to his back, point our faces to the west
And we'll ride the prairie that we love the best

Goodbye old paint I'm a-leavin' Cheyenne
Goodbye old paint I'm a-leavin' Cheyenne
I'm leavin' Cheyenne and goin' to Montana
Goodbye old paint I'm a-leavin' Cheyenne
