A MAN NAMED HODS                  99
I can shoot and throw a rope and brand a crazy,
locoed steer I can ride a bucking bronc and make him knuckle.
I can quiet restless cattle when the leader's getting
wild, And the lightning flash is 'miff to make you dizzy, I can soothe 'em like a mother when she's croonin'
to her child But it something makes a man get might busy!
But my song it's meek and humble; there is
nothing I can sing That in any way my sentiments can utter; Since I saw your flashing eye, your winning smile
yes, everything In your outfit they have set my heart a-flutter.
So, Chiquita, if you'll let me, I would like to brand
you mine Will you share with me the storms and sunny
weather? Ah! Your arms, your lips, Chiquita they are
sweeter than old wine! Come, we '11 hit life's trail and follow it together!
Heard this first over on the Via Grande, sung by a puncher named Liston.
Come, all you old cow-punchers, a story I will tell, And if you'll all be quiet, I sure will sing it well; And if you boys don't like it, you can all go to hell.
