When The Cactus Is In Bloom Lyrics - Arlo Guthrie

words and music by Jimmy Rodgers 

 

Cattle prowl and the coyotes howl 

Out on the Great Divide 

Never done no wrong, just singin' a song 

As down the trail I ride 

 

Rattle snakes rattle at the prairie dogs 

You can hear that mournful tune 

'Cause it's round-up time, a-way out west 

When the cactus is in bloom 

Yodel... 

 

CHORUS 

Daylight comes and the cowhands yell 

They call out every man 

Throw my saddle on my old cow horse 

I drink my coffee from a can 

The sun goes down on the cattle trail 

And I'm gazin' at the moon 

'Cause it's round-up time, a-way out west 

When the cactus is in bloom 

Yodel . . . 

 

Now we don't have cold weather 

It never snows or rains 

This is where the sun shines best 

Out on the western plains 

Some of the boys are gone away 

But they will be back soon 

'Cause it's round-up time, a-way out west 

When the cactus is in bloom 

Yodel... 

 

CHORUS
