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.
Lyrics
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.

Instrumental

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.

Chorus:

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.


Chorus
