They picked me up and carried me in
And rubbed me down with an old stake-pin.

I 've traveled up and I 've traveled down, I 've traveled this country round and round, I've lived in city and I've lived in town, But I've got this much to say: Before you try cow-punching, kiss your wife, Take a heavy insurance on your life, Then cut your throat with a barlow knife, — For it's easier done that way.
An old song, credited to Al Pease of Round Rock, Texas. J first hearditsung by J. Latham at La Luz, NewMexico.
