Lyrics
By the way you watch the sunset, I can tell
Soon you'll saddle up that ol' strawberry roan
Bid goodbye to the goodnight lovin' trail
And set off to blaze a new trail of your own

I know you'll travel light, like you always do
But you'll always take a part of me with you

Here's hopin' there's an open road before you
Here's hopin' that your aim is always true
And when you're tryin' to outrun that setting sun
Here's hopin' that you do

I know you'll try to hold to higher ground
And stay one day ahead of the storm
But when another blows and the rain keeps pouring down
May you find a place to keep you safe and warm

They say, every cowboy finds a home, somewhere
But friend, until your travels take you there

Here's hopin' there's an open road before you
Here's hopin' that your aim is always true
And when you're tryin' to outrun that setting sun
Here's hopin' that you do

If the trail looks bad and you need to double back
Here's hopin' that you do
