(song lyric)

 

The Souls of Pioneers

 

I saw the ranger sitting there

Beside the rocky path,

I smiled and said, It's five o'clock

So we must be the last,

He grinned at me and shook his head,

Said, more will come around

If I just wait here long enough,

They never let me down.

 

You know, the souls of pioneers

Still roll across this trail,

Sometimes they stop a while, he said,

To tell another tale,

All the settlers and the dreamers

Who have passed by through the years,

I never feel alone out here

With the souls of pioneers.

 

They tell about the life they left

To chase the setting sun,

The cabin home they're going to build

When this old journey's done,

They talk about the prairie storms

And bitter mountain snow,

And all the kids they're going to raise

And crops they're going to grow.

 

Yes the souls of pioneers

Still roll across this trail,

Sometimes they stop a while, he said

To tell another tale,

All the settlers and the dreamers

Who have passed by through the years,

I never feel alone out here

With the souls of pioneers.

 

Yes, the settlers and the dreamers

Who have passed by through the years,

Keep this old ranger company

All the souls of pioneers.

 

p.s. In case you are a member of a Bluegrass, Folk, or Western group (or know someone who is) and might be interested in co-writing, please let me know.  This lyric has already been recorded and released, but I have a lot that haven't. dennisgoodwin1947@gmail.com
