Saturday Night With Mr. C. ~ LSP-1971
Twilight On the Trail
When it's twilight on the trail,
And I jog along, 
The world is like a dream 
And the ripple of the stream is my song . . .
When it's twilight on the trail,
And I rest once more, 
My ceiling is the sky 
And the grass on which I lie is my floor . . .
Never ever have a nickel in my jeans,
Never ever have a debt to pay, 
Still I understand what real contentment means, 
Guess I was born that way . . .
When it's twilight on the trail,
And my voice is still, 
Please plant this heart of mine 
Underneath the lonesome pine on the hill . . .
( Underneath the lonesome pine on the hill . . . )
When it's twilight on the trail . . .
