As I sit here in the feedlot
Looking at a schedule that’s quite a fright
My mind wonders back to Wyoming
A place that sounds just right.

The weather was not so warm
On that summer day in mid-July
When the cattle needed moving
Underneath that big ole mountain sky

We loaded up the horses and trailered up the the mountain
Everyone was loaded and we hit the road at dawn
After an hour’s time of driving we made it to the top
Just in time for us to let a great big yawn.

We unloaded all our horses
And cinched our saddles tight
Took time to watch the sunrise
Behind those peaks it looks just right
