Lyrics:She was a girl on a wagon train
Headed west across the plain
Train got lost in a summer
storm
They couldn't move west and they couldn't go home

Then she saw him ridin
through the rain
He took charge of the wagons and he saved the train
And she looked down
and her heart was gone
The train went west but she stayed on
In Lonesome
Dove

(Chorus)
Back to back with the Rio Grande
A Christian woman in the devil's
land
She learned the language and she learned to fight
But she never learned how to deal
with the lonely night
In Lonesome Dove

A farmer's daughter with a gentle hand
A
blooming rose in a bed of sand
She loved the man who wore a star
A Texas Ranger known near
and far

So they got married and they had a child
But times were tough and the West
was wild
So it was no surprise the day she learned
That her Texas man would not
return
To Lonesome Dove

Repeat chorus

She watched her boy grow into a
man
He had an angel's heart and the devil' hand
He wore his star for all to see
He
was a Texas lawman, a legacy

Then one day word blew into town
It seemed the men that
shot his father down
Had robbed a bank in Jerico
The only thing 'tween them and
Mexico
Was Lonesome Dove

Repeat chorus

The shadows stretched across the
land
As the shots rang out down the Rio Grande
And when the smoke had finally cleared the
street
The men lay at the Ranger's feet

But legend tells to this very day (legend
tells to this very day)
That shots were comin from an alley way
Though no one knows who
held the gun
There ain't no doubt if you ask someone
In Lonesome Dove

Repeat
chorus

In Lonesome Dove
