Sing songs of the sunrise into the night
The stars as your timepiece, make it all right
Make friends with the darkness, talk to the moon
And when the light lifts, you can let out a tune

I’ve been to the mountains, climbed through the sky
Shouldered their whiteness, watched their gold fly
Shared in their treasures, shook at their might
Spoke softly of wonders, Cowboy’s Delight

Sing songs of the sunrise into the night
A song of the mountain, Cowboy’s Delight
The stars as your timepiece will make it all right
Sing songs of the mountains, Cowboy’s Delight

By Bob Carpenter and David Holster
