I watched every sun up comin' over my tin cup
Seen every moon changin' while I slept with the sky
Felt the chill in the north wind, find holes that I can't mend
This West Texas cowboy is wrest less again

Campfire light dancin' on the smiles of some good friends
Wearin' the hard times in the lines on their faces
Now the seasons are changin' and it's time I was leavin'
Cause this West Texas cowboy is wrest less again

So I'm sayin' goodbye, ridin' away
Sayin' goodbye again
I'm wishin' you well, miss you until
I come back again next year

Let's sing of the good days and drink to the ladies
Till the whiskey's all gone and their pleasure is mine
Come sit here beside me, sweet lullaby me
This West Texas cowboy is wrest less again

Sayin' goodbye, ridin' away
Sayin' goodbye again
Wishin' you well, miss you until
I come back again next year

Sayin' goodbye, ridin' away
Sayin' goodbye again
Wishin' you well, I'll miss you until
I come back again next year

Sayin' goodbye, ridin' away
Sayin' goodbye again
I'm wishin' you well, miss you until
I come back again next year
