“Where have all the cowboys gone, long time passing
Where have all the cowboys gone, long time ago.
Where have all the cowboys gone? Turned to husbands every one.
When will they ever learn? Some people never learn.

Where have all the husbands gone, long time passing.
Where have all the husbands gone, long time ago.
Where have all the husbands gone? Turned to barflies every one.
When will they ever learn? Some people never learn.

Where have all the barflies gone, long time passing.
Where have all the barflies gone, long time ago.
Where have all the barflies gone? Sold their Chevies every one.
When will they ever learn? Some people never learn.

Where have all the Chevies gone, long time passing.
Where have all the Chevies gone, long time ago.
Where have all the Chevies gone? Sold for babies every one.
When will they ever learn? Some people never learn.

Where have all the babies gone, long time passing.
Where have all the babies gone, long time ago.
Where have all the babies gone? Grown to cowboys every one.
When will they ever learn? Some people never learn.”

Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
