My Rifle, My Pony and Me/Cindy, Cindy - Dean Martin and Ricky Nelson with John Wayne and Walter Brennan/Ricky Nelson with The Nelsons

My Rifle, My Pony and Me

Sun is sinking in the west 
The cattle go down to the stream 
The redwing settles in the nest 
It's time for a cowboy to dream

Purple light in the canyon 
That is where I long to be 
With my three good companions 
Just my rifle, pony and me

Gonna hang my sombrero 
On the limb of a tree 
Coming home sweet my darling 
Just my rifle, pony and me

Whippoorwill in the willow 
Sings a sweet melody 
Riding to Amarillo 
Just my rifle, pony and me

No more cows to be ropin' 
No more strays will I see 
'Round the bend shell be waitin' 
For my rifle, pony and me 
For my rifle, my pony and me 

Cindy, Cindy

I wish I was an apple hangin' in a tree
And everytime my sweetheart passed
She'd take a bite off me
She told me that she loved me
She called me sugar plum
She threw her arms around me
I thought my time had come

Get along home, Cindy, Cindy
Get along home, Cindy, Cindy
Get along home, Cindy, Cindy
I'll marry you sometime

I wish I had a needle
As fine as I could sew
I'd sew her in my pocket
And down the road I go
Cindy hugged and kissed me
She wrung her hands and cried
Swore I was the prettiest thing
That ever lived or died

Get along home, Cindy, Cindy
Get along home, Cindy, Cindy
Get along home, Cindy, Cindy
I'll marry you sometime
