Christmas For Cowboys

Year: 1975

Written By: Steve Weisberg

'Rocky Mountain Christmas' was John Denver's first Christmas album and as you'd expect it contained a mix of traditional and brand new seasonal songs. 'Christmas For Cowboys' was one of the newbies and was written by Steve Weisberg especially for the album. You know exactly what you are going to get with John Denver and 'Christmas For Cowboys' is no exception. As homespun as is possible it features his trademark calming vocals and a beautifully arranged lilting acoustic backdrop.

In 2004 Christian rock band Jars of Clay recorded 'Christmas For Cowboys' for the Maybe This Christmas series of compilations. Their rendition was faithful to the original in almost every respect which was no bad thing.

 

Christmas For Cowboys Lyrics

Tall in the saddle, we spend Christmas Day, driving the cattle over snow
covered-plains.
All of the good gifts given today, ours is the sky and the wide open range.
Back in the cities they have different ways, football and eggnog and Christmas
parades.
I'll take my saddle, I'll take the reins, It's Christmas for cowboys wide-open
plains.

A campfire for warmth as we stop for the night, the stars overhead are
Christmas tree lights.
The wind sings a hymn as we bow down to pray, It's Christmas for cowboys,
wide-open plains.

Tall in the saddle we spend Christmas Day, driving the cattle over
snow-covered plains.
All of the good gifts given today, ours is the sky and the wide open range.
It's Christmas for cowboys, wide open plains.
