    I remember Hearing Roy Rogers sing this song at Grandma's when I was three years old!

    "Inspire me muse to sing of the wanderer, who sailed the wine dark sea and toppled the towers of Ilium"
    "Make a Joyous Noise"
    "Let there be song to fill the air"

    Another Tom Russell song "Tonight we ride"


    Panco Villa crossed the border in the year of ought sixteen
    The people of Columbus still hear him riding through their dreams
    He killed seventeen civilians you could hear the women scream
    Blackjack Pershing on a dancing horse was waiting in the wings
    Tonight we ride, tonight we ride
    We'll skin ole Pancho Villa, make chaps out of his hide
    Shoot his horse, Siete Leguas, and his twenty-seven bride
    Tonight we ride, tonight we ride
    We rode for three long years till Blackjack Pershing called it quits
    When Jackie wasn't lookin' I stole his fine spade bit
    It was tied upon his stallion, so I rode away on it
    To the wild Chihuahuan desert, so dry you couldn't spit
    Tonight we ride, you bastards dare
    We'll kill the wild Apache for the bounty on his hair
    Then we'll ride into Durango, climb up the whorehouse stairs
    Tonight we ride, Tonight we ride
    When I'm too damn old to sit a horse, I'll steal the warden's car
    Break my ass out of this prison, leave my teeth there in a jar
    You don't need no teeth for kissin' gals or smokin' cheap cigars
    I'll sleep with one eye open, 'neath God's celestial stars
    Tonight we rock, Tonight we roll
    We'll rob the Juarez liquor store for the Reposado Gold
    And if we drink ourselves to death, ain't that the cowboy way to go?
    Tonight we ride, tonight we ride
    Tonight we fly, we're headin' west
    Toward the mountains and the ocean where the eagle makes his nest
    If our bones bleach on the desert, we'll consider we are blessed
    Tonight we ride, Tonight we ride
    Tonight we ride, tonight we ride.
