The Trail to Mexico
So I wrote a letter, a letter to my dear, But not a word from her could I hear.
When I arrived at the once loved home I called for the darling of my own; They said she had married a richer life, Therefore, wild cowboy, seek another wife.
Oh, the girl she is married I do adore, And I cannot stay at home any more; I'll cut my way to a foreign land Or I'll go back west to my cowboy band.
I'll go back to the Western land, I'll hunt up my old cowboy band,— Where the girls are few and the boys are true And a false-hearted love I never knew.
" O Buddie, O Buddie, please stay at home, Don't be forever on the roam. •There is many a girl more true than I, So pray don't go where the bullets fly."
