Lyrics

he went for ride in the morning sun
on a silver bellied hog
grey hair thin and long
yellow teeth just hanging on

40 years ago he started to ride
you can see it in his steel blue eyes
but the dragon has come and gone
and now he's riding all alone

with the power of the Colorado
rushin' under the tires
in the pale blue mourning

he's a lone wolf cowboy
born to raise himself and run
carving deep tracks on his Harley Davidson
off to find that woman he lost among the dust
movin' like a shadow dragged behind a buzzard in the sun

back in '75 Ticaboo, Utah
highway cooling them off
she was pretty and she was mean
just like his momma used to be

they pulled into the shade by the bone dry trees
and he gave her heroine eyes
but before he knew any better
it dragged her down the river

oh and the power of the Colorado rushed under the tires
until it drowned out the sound of the one he lost

he's a lone wolf cowboy
born to raise himself and run
carving deep tracks on his Harley Davidson
off to find that woman he lost among the dust
movin' like a shadow dragged behind a buzzard in the sun

you never know until you break down
you're on the road to a ghost town
the river flows, to the underground
you're on the road to a ghost town

he's a lone wolf cowboy
born to raise himself and run
carving deep tracks on his Harley Davidson
off to find that woman he lost among the dust
movin' like a shadow dragged behind a buzzard in the sun
