They'll go to their parties, their whiskey they'll
take, And out in the dark their bottles they'll break; You'll hear one say, "There's a bottle round here; So come around, boys, and we'll all take a share."
There is some wears shoes and some wears boots, But there are very few that rides who don't shoot; More than this I'll tell you what they'll do, They'll get them a watch and a ranger hat too;
They'll go in the hall with spurs on their heel; They'll get them a partner to dance the next reel,
