While I was out a-ridin'
The moon was as bright as a reading light

He asked me
Why do you rope for short pay?
And you're losin' your share

They married and have a good life
She made the perfect professional's wife
[Chorus]
They've never seen the northern lights
Never seen the spring hit the Great Divide

And tore off the stamp for Black Jim
He just looked at my letter and grinned
[Chorus]
They've never seen the northern lights
Never seen the spring hit the Great Divide
