I was workin' on the KCS rail line
Katie was the girl down the street
Well I took her to a dance on the Fourth of July
Hopin' she might fall in love with me

Well the band started playin' right at nine
Firecrackers popped in the sky
We danced and we danced, Lord I never had a chance
I got canned on the fifth of July

And we laughed in the moonlight
Said goodbye in the gray light of dawn
And the girl of my dreams each and every night it seems
Is the one that I hold in my arms

I was playin' at the Tommy Knocker Tavern
Jenny was the girl at the bar
I sang every song for her and her alone
And kissed her 'neath the Colorado stars

And we laughed in the moonlight
Said goodbye in the gray light of dawn
And the girl of my dreams each and every night it seems
Is the one that I hold in my arms

Seasons come and change just like the leaves
Red oaks in the Kai Nation wind
Well they scatter and they fall, where they land I can't recall
Will I ever find my darlin' again?

And we laughed in the moonlight
Said goodbye in the gray light of dawn
And the girl of my dreams each and every night it seems
Is the one that I hold in my arms
Yes the girl of my dreams each and every night it seems
Is the one that I hold in my arms
