Lyrics:Up and down the old homestead
The naked rider gallops through his head
And although the
moon isn't full
He still feels the pull

Out on the floor where the cowboys
dance
Approaching slowly at a glance
Here comes the shadow of his stance
The reins
are fallin' from his hands

Shadow
"Why do you ride that crazy horse?"
Inquires
the shadow with little remorse
Just then a priest comes down the stairs
With a sack of
dreams and old nightmares

Rider
"Who are you," the rider says
"You dress in
black but you talk like a Fed
You spout ideas from books that you read
Don't you care
about this guy's head?"

Just then the sound of hoofbeats was heard
And the sky was
darkened by a prehistoric bird
Who flew between the unfulfilled moon
And the naked rider,
to a telephone booth.

Bird 1
"We'll call the moon and see what's up
I've got
some change in this little tin cup
We'll say that the shadow is growin' dim
And we need
some light to get back to him
Just one call should do it all
I'll carve this number on the
wall
With my beak."

Birds 2 and 3
"Where have you been," they said to the
first
"Get back to the clouds, we're dying of thirst
There's not enough time to make that
call
Let's ditch this rider, shadow and all."

The sky was filled with the beautiful
birds
Still on the ground some crying was heard
With his dime in his hand and his hand on
the dial
His cars were sweating as he forced a smile

Hoofbeats beating across the
range
He rode through the night with his cup of change
Tired and beaten he fell into
slumber
But up in the sky they still had his number

Up and down the old
homestead
The naked rider gallops through his head
And although the moon isn't full

He still feels the pull
Still feels the pull
