THE STRANGER We’d drove the herd hard that day, then we stopped to rest the night. Supper was all finished up and the campfire gave us light. We were drinkin’ cookies coffee, when He came walkin’ in; His eyes could look right thru you, He was tall and sorta thin. His voice seemed right familiar, as He sat with us a spell, Somethin’ shore was different, but what I couldn’t tell. He warned us ‘bout the river we was to cross that very week, Said the thing was runnin’ over, rains had filled her to her peak. As quick as He had come around, He walked into the night And no one heard Him ride away, but somethin’ shore felt right. The night was strangely peaceful, stars were shinin’ out real bright; I felt the stranger watchin’ as I lay awake that night. The day we reached that river, the water had gone down, And as we moved the herd across, my heart began to pound. Standing down the river I saw the Man again, The Stranger waved us on and I shouted to the men. But no one else had seen Him then my mind went racin’ back When I almost died with fever in that miner’s old line shack. I’d prayed and asked the Lord to help me through that time; That’s when I’d seen the Stranger and I feared I’d lost my mind. Next mornin’ I was better, the fever was all gone, I thot I”d dreamed the Stranger but I know now I was wrong. My prayers had shore been answered and my life was spared again, Cause God had sent His angel who was watchin’ round the bend.
