On the llano Estacado
Not far from Amarillo
Big trucks roll and the wind blows
Mostly all of the time
Way out on the prairie
Wild rags flutter and the winds sigh
Over Charles Goodnight's grave

Bandanas blue and yellow
All the shades of Paladouro
Where they come from I do not know
Maybe riders on the wind
All along the fence line
Like some old time cowboy's shrine
Wild rags flutter and the winds sigh
Over Charles Goodnight's grave

If you ride for Amarillo
For to dance the wild Fandango
Out among the moon glow
Of the panhandle plain
Raise a toast to the legends
Of Goodnight and Loving
And the ones who hang the wild rags
Over Charles goodnight's grave
