Testo Cry Stampede – Marty Robbins

Testo della canzone Cry Stampede di Marty Robbins
Album: Unknown
The night was a-blaze with the heavenly fire
Of lightnin’, wind, and rain.
And the sound of thunder is spookin’ the herd
And I fear there’ll be a stampede.
The cattle are starting to mill around,
Their bellows strike fear in my heart.
I know if the stom lasts very much longer,
There’s bound to be a stampede.

Stampede! (echo: stampede! )
Cry Stampede! (cry stampede! )
The thing that a cowboy fears the most
Is Stampede!

As I sit in the saddle, the night’s wearin’ on
And the storm is lingering still.
The lightnin’s glare on the restless herd
Makes it seem like a sea’s angry swell.
Then, all of a sudden, a bolt of fire
Strikes the tree where my pony stands.
As I fall to the ground, I can hear the sound
Of a drover yellin’ Stampede!

Stampede! (echo: stampede! )
Cry Stampede! (cry stampede! )
The thing that a cowboy fears the most
Is Stampede!

For a moment I lay in the mud half dazed.
I could hear the herd bearin’ down.
And I crawled in a ditch where a tree came to rest
And I crouched between it and the ground.
It seems like a miracle of God’s hand.
It’s over and I’m still alive
And I thank the Trail Boss up in the sky
For sparin’ me from the stampede.

Stampede! (echo: stampede! )
Cry Stampede! (cry stampede! )
The thing that a cowboy fears the most
Is Stampede!
