U S U RAKGE
i59
You will drive up to the ranch and there you will
stop; It's a little sod house with dirt all on top. You will ask what it is and they will tell you out
plain That it is the ranch house on the TJ S TJ range.
You will go in the house and he will begin to ex­plain;
You will see some blankets rolled up on the floor;
You may ask what it is and they will tell you out plain
That it is the bedding on the TJ S TJ range.
You are up in the morning at the daybreak To eat cold beef and U S U steak, And out to your work no matter if it's rain — And that is the life on the U S U range.
You work hard all day and come in at night, And turn your horse loose, for they say it's all right, And set down to supper and begin to complain Of the chuck that you eat on the TJ S TJ range.
The grub that you get is beans and cold rice And TJ S TJ steak cooked up very nice; And if you don't like that, you need n't complain, For that's what you get on the TJ S TJ range.
Now, kind friends, I must leave you, I no longer
can remain, I hope I have pleased you and given you no pain. But when I am gone don't think me strange, For I have been a cow-puncher on the TJ S U.
