Cowboy Lyrics
A COWBOY'S RESOLUTION
I holds a tight rope on conviction,
Determination's ever been my style, An' to tie an' brand a resolution,
'Most any day I'd run a dozen mile. I am that set in my opinion,
A mule is like a rabbit a-side me, There hain't no use to try persuasion,
Fer what I say has simply got to be.
There hain't no livin', breathin' woman
Can make me jump or hang upon her word; No skirt what's flirty or uncertain
Can ever hope to cut me out the herd. I've said she'd have to quit her triflin',
An' 'til she did no pictured olive branch— She writes me notes on foolscap paper—
Would make me ever even cross her ranch.
Of course on Sunday nothin's doin',
An' really I've some business with her dad, So I'll happen in jes' fer to see him—
(I wonder if she is a-feelin' sad?) I holds a tight rope on conviction,
Determination's ever been my style, An' to tie an' brand a resolution,
.'Moat any day I'd run a dozen mile.
[116]
