We rode all night across an endless desert
We had no moon to light our way
And though a billion stars were slowly turning
We lacked the consciences to pray
Our horses running like devil chasers
Those feet they hardly touched the ground
Yes, I'm familiar with the grey wolves howling
But I'm certain I never heard this sound
Devil to pay
On judgement day
Would Jesus strike me down
If I should pray this cowboy song
It's all I know
To bring me back into your arms
Your distant sun
Your shining light
You'll be my dog star shining
Tonight
I've been the lowest of the low on the planet
I've been a sinner all my days
And I was living with my hand on the trigger
I had no sense to change my ways
The priest asked if I'd embrace the resurrection
To suck the poison from my life
Just like an existential cowboy villain
His words were balanced on my knife
Devil to pay
On judgement day
Would Jesus strike me down
If I should pray
This cowboy song
It's all I know
To bring me back into your arms
Your distant sun
Your shining light
You'll be my dog star shining
Tonight
Every night
Every night
All my distances afar
This cowboy song
It's all I know
To bring me back into your arms
This cowboy song
This cowboy life
I'll be your dog star shining
Tonight
Dog star...
