122 SONGS OF THE COWBOYS
They walk straight up and take a drink, paying for
every one, And they never ask your pardon for anything they 've
When they go to their dances, some dance while
others pat; They ride their bucking broncos and wear their
broad-brimmed hats; With their California saddles and their pants stuck
in their boots, You can hear their spurs a-jingling and perhaps
some of them shoots.
Come, all soft-hearted tenderfeet, if you want to
have some fun, Go live among the cowboys, they '11 show you how
it's done; They'll treat you like a prince, my boys, about them
there's nothing mean; But don't try to give them too much advice, for all
of them ain't green.
"OLD TROUBLE" A L RANCH COLORED COOK
By N. Howard Thorp
Morn's breakin' over de ole Ranch before de moon's
gone way, Dat's a sign er early frostin' in de fall; Two Roosters on de water-trough 'fore de break er
day,— Dat's gwine ter make some trouble fer us all.
