Cheyenne

Lyrics: Carter, Gilbert
Music: Carter, Gilbert

Played by Kingfish (without Bob Weir), and before that by Horses.

I left Nebraska, looking at sunset
Needing a shave and a bath
Wyoming night time could be a come down
Where do I go for a laugh
In Cheyenne, Cheyenne

Talking with a bar fly, pretty little green eyes
Sure can throw a smile
Head's in the right place, baby's got a sweet face
Calls that whispering style
In Cheyene, Cheyenne, get me high and
Chase my blues away
Cheyenne, Cheyenne, still trying
To steal my heart away

Annie is a cow girl, here and now girl
Says she can make me a man
She showed me how, I said oh wow
Come again when I can
In Cheyenne, Cheyenne, got me high and
Stole my heart away
In Cheyenne, Cheyenne, stop crying
Daddy's home to stay

Cheyenne, Cheyenne, it's better in Cheyenne
Cheyenne, Cheyenne, I'm living in Cheyenne
Cheyenne, Cheyenne, I'm living in Cheyenne
Cheyenne, Cheyenne, I'm living in Cheyenne
[etc and fade]
