Down in the gulley in a big clump of tree's.
I sit and watch the mighty river run free.
I've been here for day's cause I wanted to be.
Did my Little Bonnie get tired of me?
Ride here at night through the buffalo grass.
There was'nt nothing of me she would'nt ask.
I'll stay in this valley just as long as I can.
Will my Little Bonnie come see me again?
Remembering how we got acquainted.
In a school house gettin' educated.
Ten years where have they gone?
She's not here and now it seem's so long.
I knew her Daddy never took to me.
He told her a man I'd never be.
She knew her Daddy was wrong.

Someday soon we'll be together.
We'll stay down here and live forever.
Time is surely on my side.
And I've got alot of time to bide.
The sun is sinkin' down behind the hill.
Another quart of whiskey to be killed.
Maybe this will be the night.
Is this is my woman coming on down the trail?
A man's by her side.
And she's looking like hell.
My eyes are not lying.
It's Luke my best friend.
Guess I'll never see my little Bonnie again.
