Restless cattle, stop your millin' 'round it's time to go to sleep
While I tell you 'bout some secrets this poor cowboy has to keep
You won't understand, but still I'd like to get it off my chest
Restless cattle, now it's time to get some rest.

If I show you what I carry will you promise not to laugh
If another tear drop falls and stains her faded photograph
Only you know how I feel inside, only you know that I weep
Restless cattle, settle down it's time to sleep.

What's this, you've stopped your millin', can it be you understand
That a cowboy cries like any other man
Guess my story must have touched you 'cause you're all standin' around
Restless cattle, now it's time for beddin' down.

Guess my story must have touched you 'cause you're all standin' around
Restless cattle, now it's time for beddin' down...
