About the song
I've spent a lot of time in tall, mountain country. When a packer's horse goes down, he's faced with the heartbreak of leaving his best friend behind.
Midnight Boy

Verse I

The dirt won?t dig too far down,
Can?t sink a shovel in the cold hard ground.
Said goodbye to my old friend,
I never thought this ride would end.


Verse II

All along the great divide,
Daybreak in the morning,
Out late every night.
Tough miles to go, and work to do.
A cowboy?s nothing without the likes of you.


Midnight Boy, say goodbye.
I?m gonna leave you on this mountainside.
So close your eyes, and see the deep blue sky.
And the Good Lord to take you on a quiet ride.

Verse III

It?s time to follow your bright star.
A brand new trail, sure to take you far.
Off with your saddle,
And the reins.
Now you run wild all across the plains.
