that old prairie wind is blowing
i can feel it on my face
as the land rolls out before me
everything now is in its place
my old home no i'll never go to
my old home i'll never see
for i must ride now across these flatlands
fleeing the man o who'd murder me

By the dawn's early light
O now I must saddle up and ride
By the dawn's early light
Ride through the night
Into the dawn's early light

In the state of Indiana lived the man who killed my son
i shot his ass dead
a deadly ending after 10 long years on the run
but that man he was not a loner
had two brothers don't you see?
they flipped a coin down to let fate decide
which one would come and murder me

By the dawn's early light
O now I must saddle up and ride
By the dawn's early light
O now ride through the night
Into the dawn's early light

sun comes up
i'm down in the valley
in the air sensations are to me
then i see comin up around the corner
both of the brothers ridin right in front of me

down in the valley
it's two against one
all men reachin for their guns
three three three shots fired
down in the valley
two men dyin (or two in I?)
in the mornin sun

by the dawn's early light
now my boy by my side
by the dawn's early light
as I lay me down to die
in the dawn's early light

By the dawn's early light
Now I must saddle up and ride
By the dawn's early light
As i ride through the night
As i ride to the dawn's early light

ridin along into the night
ridin along into the night
ridin along into the night
ridin along into the night
ridin along into the night
ridin along into the night
into the night
into the night
