THE PECOS QUEEN
W HERE the Pecos River winds and turns in its journey to the sea, From its white walls of sand and rock striving ever
to be free, Near the highest railroad bridge that all these mod­ern times have seen, Dwells fair young Patty Morehead, the Pecos River queen.
She is known by every cowboy on the Pecos River
wide, They know full well that she can shoot, that she can
rope and ride. She goes to every round-up, every cow work without
fail, Looking out for her cattle, branded " walking hog
on rail."
She made her start in cattle, yes, made it with her
rope; Can tie down every maverick before it can strike a
lope. She can rope and tie and brand it as quick as any
man; She's voted by all cowboys an A-i top cow hand.
