Livin' Free

Just me, a horse, my dog and the wind
Ride to earn our daily fee.
Hard life perhaps, but we love it, 'cause
We're really livin' free.

The whole eternal scheme of things
Is too much to understand,
But I'm blessed to live where I can feel
The heartbeat of the land.

The dust and din of mans' endeavors,
Thank God, are not too near me
My chosen work offers special times
To be alone - and free.

Just me, a horse, my dog and the wind,
We've been through much together;
They're proven, loyal comrades and friends,
Any time - or weather.

The breeze bears scent of sage and cedar
Where vistas are wide and bold
Around each bend, we glimpse some wildlife,
Just as in days of old.

Mule deer, wild turkey, a bobcat too—
Bunch of pronghorn antelope;
Coyote, meadowlark, prairie sage grouse,
Jackrabbit on the slope.
An me, this horse, my dog and the wind
Know we're each part of the whole,
As all we see and hear and smell
Exists in our own soul.

Horizons reach infinity,
Or some such faraway place.
We recognize buttes, creeks and canyons
Like lines in some friends' face.

Beneath all this there thrums in our ears,
Like some drummer in a band,
The mighty, unchanging sound we love—
The heartbeat of the land.
