Work down in Texas
Is all the year around;
You will never get consumption
By sleeping on the ground.
Come;, all you Texas cowboys, And warning take from me, And do not go to Montana To spend your money free.
But stay at home in Texas, Where work lasts the year around; And you will never catch consumption By sleeping on the ground.
THANKSGIVING ON THE RANCH By James Barton Adams, Denver
We was settin' 'round the ranch house on the last
Thanksgivin' Day, Tellin' yarns an' swappin* fables fer to pass the
time away; Fer the owner was religious an' had made it mani­fest That there would n't be no ridin' on a day 0' joyful
rest; An' we got in a discussion an' a heap o' talk was
spent Pro an' con an' vivy vocy what Thanksgivin' reely
meant; An' I'll bet a workin' saddle 'gainst a pa'r o* hoss's
shoes That there never was another sich a scatterin' o'
