                NIGHT RIDER’S LAMENT
G D 

G                  C
While I was out a-ridin'
 G                                  D   Dsus  D
The graveyard shift midnight till dawn
     C                        G          
The moon was as bright as a reading light
        D            C                G
For a letter from an old friend back home

D
He asked me 
C          D             G
Why do you ride for your money? 
C          D              G
Why do you rope for short pay? 
           C           D
You ain't gettin' nowhere 
            G           C    C/B   Am
And you're losin' your share 
         D                      G
Oh, you must've gone crazy out there 
  
G                                C
He said last night I ran into Jenny
G                              D     Dsus  D
They married and have a good life
          C                             G                 
Oh, you sure missed the track when you never came back
      ,      D          C            G
She made the perfect professional's wife

D
And she asked me 
C           D              G
Why does he ride for his money? 
C            D              G
Why does he rope for short pay? 
          C           D
You ain't gettin' nowhere 
          G              C    C/B   Am
And you’re losin' your share 
        D                      G
Oh, you must've gone crazy out there

        C               D         G
They've never seen the northern lights
C             D           G
Never seen a hawk on the wing
C                D             G    C  C/B   Am
Never seen the spring hit the Great Divide
               D                           G
And they ain't ever heard old Camp Cookie sing

G                             C
Now, I read up the last of my letter
G                                D   Dsus  D
And tore of the stamp for Black Jim
        C                    G             
Little Dougie rode up to relieve me
         D           C          G
He just looked at my letter and grinned

G
He asked me 
C            D              G
Why do they ride for their money? 
C           D                G
Why do they rope for short pay? 
           C           D
They ain't gettin' nowhere 
            G             C    C/B   Am
And they’re losin' their share 
          D                      G
Oh, they must've gone crazy out there

        C               D         G
They've never seen the northern lights
C             D           G
Never seen a hawk on the wing
C                D             G    C  C/B   Am
Never seen the spring hit the Great Divide
               D                           G
And they ain't ever heard old Camp Cookie sing
