She's known by all the cowboys on the Pecos River wide;
They know full well that she can shoot, that she can rope and ride;
She goes to every round-up, every cow-work with­out fail,
Looking out for all her cattle branded "walking hog on rail."
She made her start in cattle, yes, made it with her
rope; Can tie down e'ry maverick 'fore it can strike a
lope; She can rope and tie and brand it as quick as any
man; She's voted by all cowboys an Ai top cow-hand.
Across the Comstock railroad bridge, the highest in
the West, Patty rode her horse one day a lover's heart to
test; For he told her he would gladly risk all dangers
for her sake, But the puncher would n't follow, so she's still
without a mate.
By N. Howard Thorp
Where the old Fort Sumner Barracks look down on
the Pecos wide, In a dugout near the crossin' we was a-sittin' side by side;
