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.
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.
