Lyrics
Fourteen men rode out at first light Packed for a long trip, but not as long as they'd like The open range, the cattle drive That's where these boys chose to live their lives Chorus: ... But other men came ... And cleared the land ... They laid the track ... Then the trains began Half as many men used to ride twice as far The pay was better, their future caught them off guard The cattle stay healthy, fatter on the short drive Nearly every head makes it, but will the cowboy survive Chorus Some of these boys have been at this since nine or ten It's all they know, it's all they've ever been The cowboys long for a fair fight, a chance to win But time is relentless, they'll fade into the wind Chorus
