BRONC PEELER'S SONG                n
And we said a swift good-bye
In that black unlucky night.
When I'd loosed her arms from clingin'
With her words the hoofs kept ringin'
As I galloped north alone
"Adios, mi corazon!"
Never seen her since that night I kaint cross the Line, you know. She was Mez, and I was white; Like as not it's better so. Yet I've always sort of missed her Since that last wild night I kissed her; Left her heart and lost my own "Adios, mi corazon!"
BRONC PEELER'S SONG
Authorship unknown. First heard sung by L. Brennon, at Indian Tanks, New Mexico.
I've been upon the prairie,            r
I've been upon the plain, I 've never rid a steamboat, Nor a double-cinched-up train. But I've driv my eight-up to wagon That were locked three in a row, And that through blindin' sand-storms, And all kinds of wind and snow.
There never was a place I've been Had any kind of wood: We burn the roots of bar-grass And think it's very good.
