lyrics

On a long, lonesome road
Rode a Detroit cowboy
On a long, lonesome road there stood a man
Well the buzzards had a plan
They're gonna eat themselves a man
Oh the river of Blood River Valley ran.

Oh my soul Blood River ran
Oh my soul Blood River ran

On the prairie there stood a house
A little house
Where the cowboy sought a lover's bed
Well she polished up his boots
Though she knew he'd never set down roots
On the prairie where she'd grow old

Oh my soul she'd grow old
Oh my soul she'd grow old

Well the desert it was hot
But the cowboy, he was not
For the Detroit winter flowed all through his veins
Well he rode all through the night
Not another soul in sight
For a cowboy rides alone

Oh my soul he rides alone
Oh my soul he rides alone

With a target on his mind
He left all else behind
Knowing in his heart this was the end
Once a mountain got in his way
But a cowboy never sways
He flashed a stare, and boy that mountain ran

Oh my soul that mountain ran
Oh my soul that mountain ran

At last he came upon that road
That long and dusty road
Where his foe, he stood, and showed no signs of fear
For that man he was the best
He was a Texan, no less
And he shot that Detroit cowboy in his chest

Oh my soul he shot him in his chest
Oh my soul he shot him in his chest

On a long and dusty road
Lie a Detroit cowboy
Slewn at the hands of a Texas man
Well the buzzards got their meal
It was all part of the deal
Oh the river of Blood River Valley ran

Oh my soul Blood River ran
Oh my soul Blood River ran
