Bobby Darin

Shipmates in Cheyenne

 


 

 

      Shipmates in Cheyenne and raindrops and cryin'

            The dreams of an old, old man

            Candles and church bells and laughter and farewells

            Revolve in his thoughts like a wind.

 

            And I'll hold me one before the daylight is done

            I'll hold it today.

 

            Stallions and blizzards and steelies and lizards

            Adrift in the meadow of his time

            No sense of progression, of age or direction

            No meter, no form and no rhyme.

 

            And I'll hold me one before the daylight is done

            I'll hold it today.

 

            Kingdoms and cupboards and losers and lovers

            And evenin's of blackberry wine

            Fallin' like sand, just the memory of her hands

            And the kisses, the whispers and sighs.

 

            And I'll hold me one before the daylight is done

            I'll hold it today.

 

            You know ... I'll hold me one ...

            One more risin' sun ... ...
