THE GOL-DARNED WHEEL
I CAN take the wildest bronco in the tough old woolly West. I can ride him, I can break him, let him do his level
best; I can handle any cattle ever wore a coat of hair, And I've had a lively tussle with a tarnel grizzly
bear. I can rope and throw the longhorn of the wildest
Texas brand, And in Indian disagreements I can play a leading
hand, But at last I got my master and he surely made me
squeal When the boys got me a-straddle of that gol-darned
wheel.
It was at the Eagle Ranch, on the Brazos,
When I first found that darned contrivance that
upset me in the dust. A tenderfoot had brought it, he was wheeling all
the way From the sun-rise end of freedom out to San Fran­cisco Bay. He tied up at the ranch for to get outside a meal, Never thinking we would monkey with his gol-darned wheel.
