my lyricsbox
When the boy was no more than a shaver
His old man told many a tale
How his great grand dad used to go drovin
Back and forth on the Oachezown Trail
Now you might say the boy got infected
By a fantasy of the old west
For his heart and his soul got connected
To a spirit that won't let him rest

Now he don't wear spurs that go jingle
He don't spend his nights 'round the fire
And it's diesel oil that his horses require
He is a latter day cowboy
Dressed as a truck driving man
Driving his wheels and his dreams to Cheyenne

He beds down by the side of the highway
At the sight of the first evening star
In the darkness his big pony iddles
As he quietly strums his guitar
And he sings out a song of his sweetheart
Even as her sweet memory grows dim
And he sings of the trail he has chosen
But the actual fact is the trail chose him


Driving his wheels and his dreams to Cheyenne
This song is from the album "In This Life" and "Love Me".
