Lyrics verse:
I'M FAR
FROM MY HOME,
AND DREAM
IN THE SUNSET
GLOAMING,
I'M LONGING
FOR SOMEONE'S KISSES,
AND TIRED
OF ROAMING.
I'M JUST LIKE
A LEAF,
TOSSED 'ROUND
BY THE WINTRY WEATHER,
I'M WONDERING DEAREST,
WHY YOU AND I
ARE NOT TOGETHER.

Chorus:
I'M WONDERING DEAR,
IF YOU TRULY LOVE ME,
FOR DAYTIME
OR NIGHTTIME,
I'M HOLDING YOU
CLOSE TO MY HEART.
SHOULD WE MEET AGAIN,
WE'LL SMILE THROUGH
AND THEN NO PARTING,
I'M WONDERING LOVE,
JUST WHY YOU AND I
ARE ALONE
AND SIGHING.


Spanish lyrics:

verse:
QUE LEJOS ESTOY,
DEL SUELO DONDE
HE NACIDO,
INTENSA NOSTALGIA
INVADE,
MI PENSAMIENTO.
Y AL VERME TAN,
SOLO Y TRISTE
CUAL HOJA
AL VIENTO,
QUISIERA
LLORAR,
QUISIERA
MORIR
DE SENTIMIENTO.

Chorus:
OH TIERRA DEL SOL,
SUSPIRO POR VERTE,
AHORA QUE LEJOS,
YO VIVO SIN LUZ
SIN AMOR.
Y AL VERME
TAN SOLO
Y TRISTE
CUAL HOJA
AL VIENTO,
QUISIERA
LLOVAR,
QUISIERA
MORIR
DE SENTIMIENTO.

Lyrics (English lyric by Bartley Costello):
I LOVE TO ROAM
OUT YONDER,
OUT WHERE THE BUFFALO
WANDER,
FREE AS THE EAGLE
FLYING,
I'M ROPING
AND A-TYING,
I'M ROPING
AND A-TYING.

GIVE ME MY RANCH
AND MY CATTLE,
FAR FROM
THE GREAT CITY'S
RATTLE;
GIVE ME A BIG HERD
TO BATTLE,
FOR I JUST LOVE
HERDING CATTLE.

GIVE ME MY BRIDLE
AND SADDLE,
AND MY OLD PINTO
I'LL STRADDLE;
I'LL GET THE COWBOYS
A-RIDING,
OUT WHERE TE RUSTLERS
ARE HIDING.

SOMETIMES
THE WINTER STORMS
TEARING,
SET ALL THE CATTLE
A-RARING,
BUT WHEN
THE WINTER IS OVER,
WE'RE SURE ENOUGH
IN CLOVER.

GIVE ME
THE WIDE OPEN SPACES,
THAT'S JUST WHERE
I KNOW MY PLACE IS,
I LOVE THE RODEO
DEARLY,
AND THE BIG ROUND-UP
YEARLY.

THOUGH WE PLAY
SEVEN ELEVEN
MY RANCH
IS NEXT DOOR
TO HEAVEN
WE SMILE
WHEN WE TAKE
A BEATING,
BUT HANG A RAT
WHEN HE IS CHEATING.

(Spanish lyric):
ALLA EN RANCHO GRANDE,
ALL DONDE NIVIA,
HABIA UNA RANCHE RITA,
QUE ALEGRE ME DECIA,
QUE ALEGRE ME DECIA.

TE VOY HACER
TUS CAL ZONES,
COMO LOS USA
EL RANCHERO;
TE LOS COMIENZO
DE LANA,
TE LOS ACABO
DE CUERO.

NUNCA TE FIES
DE PROMESAS,
NI MUCHO MENOS
DE AMORES,
QUE SI TE
DAN CALABZAS,
VERA'S LO QUE
SON ADORES.

PONN MUY ATENTO
EL OIDO,
CUANDO RECHINE
LA PUERTA,
HAY MUERTOS
QUE NO
HACEN RUIDO,
Y SON MUY GORDAS
SUS PENAS.

CUANDO TE PIDAN
CIGARRO,
NO DES CIGARRO
Y CERILLO,
PORQUE SI DAS
LAS DOS COSAS,
TE TANTEARAN
DE ZORRILLO.
