The Rambling Cowboy
He handed me a letter which gave me to understand That the girl I left in Texas had married another man.
I turned myself all round and about not knowing
what to do, But I read on down some further and it proved the
words were true. Hard work I have laid over, it's gambling I have
designed. I'll ramble this wide world over for the girl I left
behind.
Come all you reckless and rambling boys who have
listened to this song, If it hasn't done you any good, it hasn't done you
any wrong; But when you court a pretty girl, just marry her
while you can, For if you go across the plains she'll marry another
man.
