Chris Ledoux - Stampede lyrics

We made camp along Red River
Watched the cattle as they bedded down
Back at the wagons, right after supper
We spread our bed rolls on the ground
And me and Willie, we took the night guard
And the sage never smelled so sweet
The prairie moon, was blazin' silver
No chance tonight for a stampede

Way over yonder, off in the distance
Towards the mountains there in the west
Did I see lightenin'?
Did I hear thunder?
My mind is weary, I could use some rest.
Then all at once, the wind shifts directions
The clouds roll in behind the tumbleweeds.
These longhorn cattle, are gettin' restless
God help us all, if they stampede

Can smell the rain, hear the thunder
The midnight sky, turns black as death
The lightenin' crashes, smell the sulphur
It's rank and strong, as Satan's breathChris Ledoux - Stampede -
The cattle rise up, and go to runnin'
I spur my pony on and take the lead
And across the herd, I can hear Willie yellin'
"Hey Stampede!"

Dust clouds rise, as the rain falls
They mix together, turn the air to mud
I feel the longhorns brush against me
And I can feel the demons racin' through my blood
Then all at once, my pony stumbles
We hit the ground, I rise up to my knees
In a flash of light, I can see the cattle comin'
Lord I know I'm gonna die in this stampede.

Then I awake, and I look around me
I'm in my bedroll and I'm layin' on the ground
Over there's the wagon, there's the campfire
I was only dreamin', but what's that sound?
And I feel the earth tremble underneath me
As the midnight sky begins to bleed
And from the blackness I can hear Willie yellin'
"Hey stampede."
