BALDY JOE'S SIMPLE RHYME
Oh, I know an old cowpuncher, an' they call
him Baldy Joe, B'cause his hair is something which is absent,
don't you know; An' he sits up in the saddle, sort o' hves there
all the time, An' a-hummin' an* a-hummin' this here sim­ple little rhyme: There hain't no sense like a logie fer to set, 'Cause you think you hain't a-gettin'
what you think you ought to get. So it's quit your jawin'.keep a tight rein
on your lip, An' brace yourself an' allers keep a-cinchin* up your grip.
Joe is a queerish critter, he's a mighty funny
man; Never has a speck of trubble an' you never,
never can Hear him kickin' or complainln', 'cause he's
happy all the time, Jes' a-hummin* that aforesaid an' quite simple
little rhyme.
[51]
