Colorado Trail Eyes like a morning star Cheeks like a rose; Laura was a pretty girl God almighty knows; Weep all you little rains, Wail, winds, wail All along, along along The Colorado trail. additional verses: Ride, all the lonely night Ride through the day, Keep the herd a-movin' on Movin' on its way. Dark is the stormy night Dark is the sky, Wish I'd stayed in Abilene Nice and warm and dry. Collected by Dr. T.L. Chapman from an injured horse wrangler; printed by Sandburg in 1927. Two additional verses by Lee Hays: copyright Folkways Music Publishers 1950 Recorded by Dyer-Bennett RG
