By N. Howard Thorp
Written for the annual Las Vegas, New Mexico, ReĀ­union.
Come on, all you cow-punchers, To the round-up in July, Where the Busters get together, En the old broncs go sky-high; We 've got 'em spoiled en tricky, Outlaws from far en near, En we 've got the boys to fork 'em, Who know not the word of fear.
The cry of all the cowboys now
Is "To the Meadow City or bust!"
From far Colorado's borders
They come a-spurrin' through the dust
You don't see prairie-schooners
A-headin' now this way,
But 'mobiles come by thousands
To the Reunion's openin' day I
Cow-girls from far Montana
En the little Prairie Rose,
They can ride 'em slick en keerless
Es everybody knows;
So come on to the Meadow City,
The key's thrown plumb away,
En everybody 's welcome
To the Cowboy's openin' day 1
