Goodbye Old Pal Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Along about round-up time, in Texas way out West
I lost a friend and a pal, boys, I laid him down to rest
Verse 2
I weeped and moaned over his grave and to me boys, it was sad
'Cause I knew down beneath that mound lay the best pal I ever had
Verse 3
Oh-de-lady-ay, de-oh-lady-oh, de-ladie-ey
Verse 4
My best pal was my old paint horse, now he's gone to rest
I laid him down beneath that mound in in Texas away out West
Verse 5
Where the cactus blooms over his grave and the coyotes cry
I know he sleeps in perfect peace beneath the Texas sky
Verse 6
Oh-de-lady-ay, de-oh-lady-oh, de-ladie-ey
Verse 7
Dear old pal, it breaks my heart to leave you here alone
Now I'll go and ride the range on the Texas roan
Verse 8
But my love for you, old pal, it shall linger on
I will always think of you, although you're dead and gone
Verse 9
Oh-de-lady-ay, de-oh-lady-oh, de-ladie-ey
Verse 10
Oh-de-lay-hee, hoo
