SONGS OF THE COWBOYS
"Why, of course my Gray Buck horse Will run on him," he said. "Show me his track. I'll bring him back, I'll bet, alive or dead."
Up Johnny spoke: "No brags I make; Straight goods I give you now: I '11 put my string on anything From a coyote to a cow."
Then up spoke Bob: " With this herejob You bet I'm going to cope; Just you watch me if you want to see How Texas punchers rope."
These cowboys three for modesty Have always been well known; For don't you know, unless they blow, Their horns they 'd not be blown?
Meanwhile the steer, devoid of fear, Was trailing o'er the Mesa. He sniffed the air; what did he care? He knew he was a racer.
With firm intent on business bent Three youth rode up the trail. The steer he saw and dropped his jaw, And then he whisked his tail.
The other day I chanced that way: That steer was grinning yet. Six weeks have passed; not yet the last Of why that steer they did n't get.
