The Beaches of Cheyenne Lyrics:

They packed up all his buckles
And shipped his saddle to his dad
And by the way the house looked
She must have took it bad
The workers come on Monday
To fix the door and patch the wall
They say she just went crazy
The night she got the call

He was up in Wyoming
And drew a bull no man could ride
He promised her he’d turn out
Well it turned out that he lied
And their dreams that they’d been livin’
In the California sand
Died right there beside him in Cheyenne

They she just went crazy
Screamin’ out his name
She ran out into the ocean
And to this day they claim
That if you go down by the water
You’ll see her footprints in the sand
‘Cause every night she walks the beaches of Cheyenne

They never found her body
Just her diary by her bed
It told about the fight they had
And the words that she had said
When he told her he was ridin’
She said then I don’t give a damn
If you never come back from Cheyenne

They she just went crazy
Screamin’ out his name
She ran out into the ocean
And to this day they claim
That you can go down by the water
And see her footprints in the sand
‘Cause every night she walks the beaches of Cheyenne

Nobody can explain it
Some say she’s still alive
They even claim they’ve seen her
On the shoreline late at night
So if you go down by the water
You’ll see her footprints in the sand
‘Cause every night she walks the beaches of Cheyenne

Every night she walks the beaches of Cheyenne
