(C.W. McCall, B. Fries, C. Davis)
Did you see me at Westport Landing
Did you hear the west wind calling

If the mud don't stay and the cattle don't stray
If the mud don't stay and the cattle don't stray

Did you hear my trumpets blow?
On the great Platte River road?
[Chorus]
We can make Scotts Bluff by the middle of June
We can make Scotts Bluff by the middle of June
Did you see that endless prairie
Did you hear that rollin' thunder

Did you cross that Great Divide?
To let you down the other side?
[Chorus, but only by C.W.]
Roll wagons, rollin' home
Roll wagons, rollin' home
Did you see me out on the desert?
Did you find a drop of water?

If the sun don't shine and the river don't rise
If the sun don't shine and the river don't rise

Far beyond the burning sand?
Did you reach the Promised Land?
[Chorus]
We can make that valley before we die
We can make that valley before we die
