American Ballads and Folk Songs
Born on the Colorado,
Sired by an alligator,
I'm a bold, bad man
From Cripple Creek, Colorado.
When I git back
There'll be a tornado!
Git higher, git higher, The higher you git's
Too low for me. Want to git my pony back And throw niggers through the crack; I'm tellin' you,
I'm wild and woolly And full of fleas; Ain't never been curried Below the knees.
I'm a wild she wolf From Bitter Creek, And it's my time To h-o-w-1, whoop-i-e-e-ee.
Horse and man talk as horse pitches— "I want ye!" "You cain't git me!" "I want ye!" . "You'll have to throw me first.55 aI want ye!" "Ah, you done got me!"
