"Rose Of Cimarron" as written by and Rusty Young....
Roll along, roll on
Rose of Cimarron
Dusty days are gone
Rose of Cimarron

Shadows touch the sand and look to see who's standin'
Waitin' at your window, watchin' will they ever show?
Can you hear them calling? You know they have fallen on
Campfires cold and dark that never see a spark burn bright

Roll along, roll on
Rose of Cimarron
Dusty days are gone
Rose of Cimarron

Trails that brought them home echo names the've known
Four days high and lonely comin' to you only
You're the one they'd turn to, the only one they knew who'd do
All her best to be around when the chips were down

Hearts like yours belong
Following the dawn
Wrapped up in a song
Rose of Cimarron

    Song MeaningRose of the Cimarron was the beautiful Rose Dunn, who was infatuated with outlaw George "Bittercreek" Newcomb as a teenager in the 1890's. She assisted him and his gang with nursing, shelter and supplies but was the unwitting instrument of his death. Her brothers, knowing that he would visit her at their house lay in wait and killed him for the "dead or alive" reward. She later married a local politician & lived a respectable life until her death.
    The lyrics seem to cover the stakeout.

    I heard the group once described as "the incredible" Poco & have always thought of them as such - one of my favourite songs.

    General CommentA truly great song, one of my favorites, beautiful lyrics and melody with an awesome finish. Poco is such an unrecognized group of super talented musicians who have all gone on to make such great contributions to our world.

    Long live great music !
