Verse:
I'm a roam -ing cow -bow rid -ing all day long,
Tum -ble -weeds a -round me, sing their lone -ly song.
Nights un -der neath a prai -rie moon, I ride a -lone and sing a tune.
 
Chorus:
See them tum -bling down, Pledg -ing their love to the ground,
Lone -ly but free I'll be found, Drift -ing a -long with the tum -bling tum -ble -weeds.
Cares of the past are be -hind, No -where to go, but I'll find, Just where the trail will wind,
Drift -ing a -long with the tum -bling tum -ble weeds.
I know when night has gone that a new world's born at dawn,
I'll keep roll -ing a -long, Deep in my heart is a song, Here on the range I be -long,
Drift -ing a -long with the tum -bling tum -ble -weeds. tum -ble -weeds.
