I speak of the song that goes

I speak of the song that goes "I ride a big blue roan
I carry all I own
in the pouches of my saddleback
with my bed roll tied behind. . .
. . . there's a prairie in the sky,
I'll find it by and by
with hues of brown and yellow,
to make a soul unwind. . .
. . . let the music take me home. . .
. . . to where a heart may roam,
I'll fly across the meadows,
touch the tall grass as I go.
Let the gentle western wind
sail me to the end,
assign me til the day is done and the song as subtle flow. . .
. . .
far as the eye can see,
I'd ride the range forever to see them once again.
Let the wild flying things
soar above, beyond their wings
and the stars above, the night sky
and the moonlight above the plains. . .
