Raider   (Henske/Yester)

Raider stole a morgan mare
as slick as she was sly
She blackjacked Raider's robber heart
Taught him how to fly
Raider, she cries, there's tears in your eyes
Oh, you are dreaming me

Now Raider sleeps out in the field
Raider's growing old
In freezing winter banks the fires
To keep his mare from cold
Raider, she cries, there's tears in your eyes
Oh, you are dreaming me

Shake you, Raider, from your sleep
The time it is all gone
Give the little mare her head
And she will bring you home
Raider, she cries, there's tears in your eyes
Oh, you are dreaming me
