And the long lonely cowboy / snuffs out the candles, / prays only to stars
Song for Cory

And the long lonely cowboy
snuffs out the candles,
prays only to stars
that watch over his sleep.

When the night hovers near him
and the coyote's at bay,
he thinks he is crazy
but there's no one to care
whether he makes it
through another long day.

And the long lonely cowboy
lights him a fire
to boil up some water
prepare him some tea.

Then the sheep gather round him,
his only companions.
They watch as he stretches
to greet the new day.
Then he lights an old candle,
keeps thoughts at bay.
