72           SONGS OF THE COWBOYS
But at last I got my master, and he surely made me
squeal, When the boys got me a-straddle of that gol-darned
wheel.
It was at the Eagle Ranch on the Brazos,
When I first found that darned contrivance that
upset me in the dust. A tenderfoot had brought it; he was wheeling all
the way From the sunrise end of freedom out to San Fran­cisco Bay. He tied up at the ranch for to get outside a meal, Never thinkhi' we would monkey with his gol-darned wheel.

And he'd venture the admission the same fellow that he meant
Was a very handy critter far as ridin' broncos went;
But he would find that he was buckin' 'gainst a dif­ferent kind of deal
If he threw his leather leggins 'gainst a gol-darned wheel.
Such a slam against my talent made me hotter than
a mink, And I swore that I would ride him for amusement or
for chink. And it was nothin' but a plaything for the kids and
such about,
