58            SONGS OF THE COWBOYS
Then he'll build a cozy cottage And furnish it complete, He '11 decorate the walls inside With pictures new and sweet.
He will leave off riding broncos And be a different man; He will do his best to please his wife In every way he can.
i Then together in double harness They will trot along down the line, Until death shall call them over To a bright and sunny clime.
May your joys be then completed And your sorrows have an end, Is the fondest wish of the writer, Your true and faithful friend.
A DEER HUNT
There are several versions of this song. Everybody adds a new verse. The author of this no one knows, as the \ original song has been so changed by additions of verses that there is little of it left.
One pleasant summer day it came a storm of snow; I picked my old gun and a-hunting I did go.
I came across a herd of deer and I trailed them
through the snow; I trailed them to the mountains where straight up
they did go.
