Lonesome Dove

Wednesday, November 13, 2019

Lonesome Dove, 1989, 4 part mini-series on CBS. Based on the 1995 Larry McMurtry novel of the same name. It was widely credited for bringing back both westerns and mini-series. Set during the twilight years of the Old West, old friends, now retired Texas Rangers join a cattle drive from Texas to Montana. Robert Duvall & Tommy Lee Jones starred. Wonderful series (there were several sequels).



Lonesome Dove, Michael Martin Murphy, 1989



Lonesome dove, I hear your cry
And if I had wings to fly
I'd join you in your restless flight
There's no place for a lonesome dove to rest tonight



A rambler's heart is like a lonesome dove
Far away from his true love
He could not find his mate in flight
There's no place for a lonesome dove to rest tonight



On the wing, wandering
He flies on and on, his song to sing
Searching for his long lost love
Must he always be a lonesome dove



(Whoever created the “poke” on Facebook has clearly never watched Lonesome Dove)


Like cowboys and bold outlaws
Riding for a long lost cause
Searching for the one true light
Our hearts feel just a lonesome dove tonight



Lonesome dove, we hear your cry
And if we had wings to fly
We'd join you in your restless flight
There's no place for a lonesome dove to rest tonight
