The Cowboys Christmas Ball – The Killers

The Cowboy’s Christmas Ball – The Killers

“SONG LYRICS”

Way out in Old Nevada, where the Truckee’s waters flow,

Where the cattle are “a-browzin’,” an’ the Spanish ponies grow;

Where the Northers “come a-whistlin’” from beyond the Neutral Strip;

And the prairie dogs are sneezin’, as if they had “The Grip”;

Where the cayotes come a-howlin’ ’round the ranches after dark,

And the bluebirds are a-singin’ to the lovely “meadow lark”;

Where the bighorns are a-grazin’ and the lonely plovers call—

It was there that I attended “The Cowboys’ Christmas Ball.”

(whoo!)

 

The boys had left the ranches and come to town in piles;

The ladies—”kinda scatterin’”—had gathered in for miles..

The room was togged out gorgeous-with mistletoe and shawls,

And candles flickered frescoes, around the airy walls.

The women folk looked lovely-the boys looked kinda treed,

Till the leader got to yellin’: “Hey! fellers, let’s stampede,”

And the music started sighin’, an’ awailin’ through the hall

As a kind of introduction to “The Cowboys’ Christmas Ball.”

Their leader was a feller that came from Swenson’s ranch,

They called him “Windy Billy,” from “little Deadman’s Branch.”

His rig was “kinda careless,” big spurs and high-heeled boots;

He had the reputation that come when “a fellers shoots.”

His voice was like a bugle upon a mountainous height;

His feet were animated an’ a mighty, movin’ sight,

When he commenced to hollerin’, “Now, fellers stake your pen!

“Lock horns with all them heifers, an’ russle ‘em like men.

“Saloot yer lovely critters; now swing an’ let ‘em go,

“Climb the grape vine ’round ‘em—all hands do-ce-do!

“You Mavericks, join the round-up- Just skip her waterfall,”

Huh! It was gettin’ happy, The Cowboys’ Christmas Ball

Don’t tell me ’bout cotillions, or germans. No sire’ee!

That whirl at Carson City just takes the cake with me.

I’m sick of lazy shufflin’s, of them I’ve had my fill,

Just Give me a frontier break-down, backed up by Wild Ol’ Bill.

McAllister ain’t nowhere, when Windy leads the show,

I’ve seen ‘em both in harness, and so I sorta know—

Oh, Bill, I sha’n’t forget ya, and I’ll oftentimes recall,

That lively gaited sworray—”The Cowboys’ Christmas Ball.”

Oh, Bill, I sha’n’t forget ya, and I’ll oftentimes recall,

That lively gaited sworray—”The Cowboys’ Christmas Ball.”

Wikipedia

I’m coming out of my cage
And I’ve been doing just fine
Gotta gotta be down
Because I want it all
It started out with a kiss
How did it end up like this
It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss
Now I’m falling asleep
And she’s calling a cab
While he’s having a smoke
And she’s taking a drag
Now they’re going to bed
And my stomach is sick
And it’s all in my head
But she’s touching his—chest
Now, he takes off her dress
Now, let me go

And I just can’t look its killing me
And taking control
Jealousy, turning saints into the sea
Swimming through sick lullabies
Choking on your alibis
But it’s just the price I pay
Destiny is calling me
Open up my eager eyes
‘Cause I’m Mr Brightside

I’m coming out of my cage
And I’ve been doing just fine
Gotta gotta be down
Because I want it all
It started out with a kiss
How did it end up like this
It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss
Now I’m falling asleep
And she’s calling a cab
While he’s having a smoke
And she’s taking a drag
Now they’re going to bed
And my stomach is sick
And it’s all in my head
But she’s touching his—chest
Now, he takes off her dress
Now, let me go

Cause I just can’t look its killing me
And taking control
Jealousy, turning saints into the sea
Swimming through sick lullabies
Choking on your alibis
But it’s just the price I pay
Destiny is calling me
Open up my eager eyes
‘Cause I’m Mr Brightside

I never…
I never…
I never…
I never…
