We made camp along the river
Watch the cattle
As they bend down
Back at the wagons

Right after supper
Spread the bed rolls
On the ground
Me an willie

We took the night guard
And the sage
Never smelled so sweet
The prairie moon

Was blazin silver
No chance tonight
For stampede
We rode off yonder

In the distance
Towards the mountains
There in the west
Then I see lightening

And I hear thunder
My mind is weary I could use some rest
Then all at once
The wind shifts directions

The clouds roll in
Behind the tumble weeds
These longhorn cattle
Are gettin restless

God help us all
If they stampede
Smell the rain
And hear the thunder

The midnight sky
Turns balck as death
Lightening crashes
Smell the sulfur

It's rank and strong
As satan's breath
The cattle rise up
And go around

I steer my pony
On to take a lead
And across the heard
I can hear willie yellin

Hey stampede
Dust clouds ride
As the rain falls
They mix together

Turn the air to mud
I feel the longhorns
Brush against me
And I can feel the demons

Racin through my blood
And all at once
My pony stumbles
We hit the ground

And I rise
Up to my knees
And flash a light
I can see the cattle comin

Lord I know
I'm gonna die
In this stampede
Then I wait

And I look around
I'm in my bed roll
And I;m layin on the ground
Over there's a wagon

And there's the campfire
I was only dreamin
But what's that sound
Then I feel the earth

Tremble beneath me
As the midnight sky
Begins to bleed
And from the blackness

I can hear willie yellin
Hey stampede
