Song Snippet for Jimmy Hayes

"There is a young cowboy, he lives on the range.
His horse and his cattle are his only companions.
He works in the saddle and he sleeps in the canyons,
waiting for summer, his pastures to change.
And as the moon rises he sits by his fire,
thinking about women and glasses of beer.
And closing his eyes as the doggies retire,
he sings out a song which is soft but it's clear
as if maybe someone could hear...

Goodnight you moon light ladies,
rock-a-bye sweet baby James.
Deep greens and blues are the colors I choose,
won't you let me go down in my dreams?
And rock-a-bye sweet baby James."

~ James Taylor
