John Garner's Trail Herd
When we reached Dodge City we drew our four
months' pay. Times was better then, boys, that was a better day. The way we drank and gambled and threw the girls
around,— " Say, a crowd of Texas cowboys has come to take
our town."
The cowboy sees many hardships although he takes
them well; The fun we had upon that trip, no human tongue
can tell. The cowboy's life is a dreary life, though his mind
it is no load, And he always spends his money like he found it in
the road.
If ever you meet old Garner, you must meet him on
the square, For he is the biggest cow-thief that ever tramped out
there. But if you want to hear him roar and spin a lively
tale, Just ask him about the time we all went up die trail.
