Marc Berger - Ride Lyrics

Used to be silent
Used to be open
Used to be romance in a life on the plains
Now itÂ’s Exxons and K-Marts
Best Westerns, McDonaldÂ’s
And my cattle graze on the big missile range

CHORUS:
Ride, ride
Get along little doggies
Ride, ride
So gold in the sun
Yippy-aye boys
Here the dinner bell ringinÂ’
Get along little doggies
For dayÂ’s about done

CanÂ’t find the campfire
CanÂ’t find the kettle
CanÂ’t find my harp or my steel-string guitar
When I turn off my headlights
And gaze at the heavens
See satellites pass between Venus and Mars

CHORUS:
Ride, ride
Get along little doggies
Ride, ride
So gold in the sun
Yippy-aye boys
Here the dinner bell ringinÂ’
Get along little doggies
For dayÂ’s about done

The blacktops are fadinÂ’
Turnpikes are openinÂ’
But somehow it just ainÂ’t the same as before
For itÂ’s up in the morning
In search of the dollar
And there’s no time for ridin’ ‘round here anymore

CHORUS:
Ride, ride
Get along little doggies
Ride, ride
So gold in the sun
WeÂ’re a long way
From the wide open spaces
Get along little doggies
For dayÂ’s about done
Get along little doggies
For the West it is won
