Red River Valley

Have you ever seen the Red River Valley
Or swam in the turbulent Missouri
Pitched a tent in the Tetons or Grand Canyon
Rafted down the majestic Colorado

Have you hunted bears, elk, moose, or buffalo
Slept under the stars in the great state of Texas
Or rode a buckin’ bronco in Amarillo
Ventured across the border into “Me-hi-co”

Have you ridden a horse across Montana
Hiked a trial from Idaho to Canada
Or seen the bad, Bad Lands of the La Kowtos
Viewed carvings of Crazy Horse or Rushmore

How long has it been since you’ve heard a loon tune
Or made love in the glow of a Harvest Moon
Or seen the beauty of Mother Nature’s plains
Hitched a ride in a Wild West Wagon train

You say dangerous—I say doldrums
Be safe from all harm and die of boredom
It’s a small world but oh so wonderful
Go make memories for a lifetime

Com on people have some fun
Life should be an adventure
Go out shouting, “What a ride!”
Go out shouting, “What a ride, what a ride
