By the light of the moon, and the other moon
Out where the campfire's glare irradiates the air
Let me hear the tune of the scarlet dunes
And the Marshal who upholds what's right and fair

Ride along, Sparks Nevada
May the gamma rays serenade your way
Ride along, Sparks Nevada
You'll return to Earth again someday

Ride along, Sparks Nevada
May the cosmic force of justice lead you on
Ride along, Sparks Nevada
The galaxy will echo with your song

So sing me a song of the marshal who longs
To fight the fight of righting wrongs
Sparks Nevada, ride along!
