Night Rider's Lament

Nancy Griffith with Don Edwards' beautiful cowboy yodel

Doesn't that make you want to be a cowboy when you grow up?

Of course, when you're too old to wrangle and ride on the swing, there's nothing left but to be the camp cook on the Goodnight Loving Trail. This next song was written by the late U. Utah Phillips, the Golden Voice of the Great Southwest. more cowboy tune. Here's David Bromberg and the Cowpunchers playing the great Ian Tyson tune, Summer Wages. Nice, very nice.
