Ridin' Down the Canyon

This song is by Sons of the Pioneers and appears on the album Cool Water (1959).

When evening chores are over at our ranch house on the plains
And all I have got to do is lay around
I saddle up my pony and go ridin' down the trail
To watch the desert sun go down

Ridin' down the canyon to watch the sun go down
A picture that no artist 'ere could paint
White faced cattle lowing on the mountain side
I hear a coyote whining for its mate

Cactus plants are blooming, sage brush everywhere
Granite spires are standing all around
I tell you folks it's heaven to be riding down the trail
When the desert sun goes down
