Ian Tyson – Springtime Lyrics

Bald eagles back in the cottonwood tree
The old brown hills are just about bare
Springtime sighing   all   along the creek
Magpies   ganging up everywhere
Sun shines warm on   the eastern slope
March came in like a lamb for a change
Gary’s pulling calves at the old stampede
We made it through another on the northern range
Lonnie’s pulling calves at the top of the world
We made it through another on the northern range
Well the big Chinook blew in last week
Warm and strong from the western sea
Pretty soon water running everywhere
Heck it couldn’t run fast enough for me
Broodmare’s sleeping in the afternoon sun
She’s shedding hair everywhere
Time for a change
George’s pulling calves at the T-Y
We made it through another on the northern range
Waddie’s pulling calves at the Little E
We made it through another on the northern range
Bald eagles back in the cottonwood tree
The old brown hills are just about bare
Springtime sighing all along the creek
Magpies ganging up everywhere
Sun shines warm on the eastern slope
March came in like a lamb for a change
Larry’s pulling calves at the Quarter Circle S
We made it through another on the northern range
Allan’s pulling calves at the Bar 4 Oarlock
We made it through another on the northern range
Jean’s pulling calves at the Horseshoe Bar
We made it through another on the northern range
Ian’s in the hills trying to write songs
Gid’s in the country where the tall grass grows
