Garth Brooks lyrics - Night Rider's Lament



Lyrics:

One night while I was out a ridin'
  The grave yard shift, midnight 'til dawn
  The moon was bright as a readin' light
  For a letter from an old friend back home
  And he asked me
  Why do you ride for your money
  Tell me why do you rope for short pay
  You ain't a'gettin' nowhere
  And you're loosin' your share
  Boy, you must have gone crazy out there
  He said last night I ran on to Jenny
  She's married and has a good life
  And boy you sure missed the track
  When you never come back
  She's the perfect professional's wife
  And she asked me
  Why does he ride for his money
  And tell me why does he rope for short pay
  He ain't a'gettin' nowhere
  And he's loosin' his share
  Boy he must've gone crazy out there
  Ah but they've never seen the Northern Lights
  They've never seen a hawk on the wing
  They've never spent spring on the Great Divide
  And they've never heard ole' camp cookie sing
  Well I read up the last of my letter
  And I tore off the stamp for black Jim
  And when Billy rode up to relieve me
  He just looked at my letter and grinned
  He said now
  Why do they ride for their money
  Tell me why do they ride for short pay
  They ain't a'gettin' nowhere
  And they're loosin' their share
  Boy, they must've gone crazy out there
  Son, they all must be crazy out there
