Colter Wall - When the Work’s All Done This Fall lyrics

A group of jolly cowboys, discussing plans at ease Says one, I'll tell you something, boys, if you will listen, please I am an old cow-puncher, you see me dressed in rags I used to be a good one boys, and went on great big jags I have got a home boys, a good one you all know Although I haven't seen it since very long ago I'm headed back to Dixie once more to see them all I'm going to see my mother when the work's all done this fall When I left my home, boys, my mother for me cried She begged mе not to go, boys, for me she would have diеd My mother's heart is aching, breaking for me, that's all With God's help I'll see her when the work's all done this fall" That very night this cowboy went out to stand his guard The night was dark and cloudy and storming very hard The cattle, they got frightened and rushed in wild stampede The cowboy tried to head them while riding at full speed Riding in the darkness, so loudly he did shout Trying hard to head them and turn the herd about His saddle horse did stumble and on him it did fall He'll not see his mother when the work's all done this fall "Send my mother my wages, boys, the wages I have earned I am so afraid, boys, the last steer I have turned I'm headed for a new range, I hear my Master call I'll not see my mother when the work's all done this fall Fred, you take my saddle, George, you take my bed Bill, you take my pistol after I am dead Then think of me kindly when you look upon them all I'll not see my mother when the work's all done this fall" Charlie was buried at sunrise, no tombstone for his head Nothing but a little board, and this is what it said "Charlie died at daybreak, he died from a fall He'll not see his mother when the work's all done this fall"
