         D 
From the top of Mahogany Ridge you can see forever 
       D                    A 
And forever is a long, long way 
    D                 G                         D                  G 
The desert rules, the first rule, you've got to know your way back home 
D                                  A 
And you'll be back to ride another day 

          D 
And when the night falls the silence all around you  
        D                                    A 
And the beating of your heart is the only sound 
      D               G        D                   G 
Down in some lonley canyon, beside the sagebrush fire 
  D                                  A 
Dreaming of the lights of paradise town 


D        E7                Em 
Roll on Owyhee, wild horse heaven 
                 G       A 
I hope it always will be 
D       E7 
Roll on Owyhee 
     G         A         D 
Far across the sagebrush sea 

          D 
So we'll raise our glasses high to the big Owyhee 
       D                                                    A  
we'll have another round for the fellas who still hear the call 
     D                                G 
you got to play the card that's dealt you 
    D                              A 
coming off the Mountain Taparedo tall 


D        E7                Em 
Roll on Owyhee, wild horse heaven 
                 G       A 
I hope it always will be 
D       E7 
Roll on Owyhee 
     G         A         D 
Far across the sagebrush sea
