Garth Brooks - Lonesome Dove Lyrics

Garth Brooks Lyrics

Lonesome Dove 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

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

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 beat the lonely night
In Lonesome Dove
Lonesome Dove

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

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
