THE ARIZONA BOYS AND GIRLS
C OME all of you people, I pray you draw near, A comical ditty you all shall hear. The boys in this country they try to advance By courting the ladies and learning to dance, And they're down, down, and they're down.
The boys in this country they try to be plain, Those words that you hear you may hear them again, With twice as much added on if you can. There's many a boy stuck up for a man, And they're down, down, and they're down.
They will go to their parties, their whiskey they'll
take, And out in the dark their bottles they'll break; You'll hear one say, " There's a bottle around here; So come around, boys, and we'll all take a share," And they're down, down, and they're down.
There is some wears shoes and some wears boots, But there are very few that rides who don't shoot; More than this, I'll tell you what they'll do, They'll get them a watch and a ranger hat, too, And they're down, down, and they're down.
They'll go in the hall with spurs on their heel, They'll get them a partner to dance the next reel,
