Ranch and Range
-f. THE MAN OF THE RANCH
My dad he's gone an' mammy sez,
I be the man eroun' this place; But funny way she sez it, coz
The tears des runned all down her face. They corned one day an' took my dad,
An' 'n they upped an' driv away. "A-rustlin' stock—ten years fer you,"
Is what I heerd one man des say.
I be the man eroun' this ranch,
But, oh, last night my mammy cried, 'N loved me like I wuz a kid,
'N helt me right up to her side. She sez it all is fer the best,
An' 'at the Lord will sure pervide, 'N after while I goes to sleep,
Des snuggled up to mammy's side.
I be the man eroun' this ranch,
My mammy sez so, an' you see. They dassent hurt her coz I guess
They know that she belongs to me. But what fer duz she cry an' cry,
An' why don't no one visit us? My dad he's gone an' I'm boss now,
What be the use o* all this fuss?
[41]
