"COWBOY"
(HOW I GOT A STALLION I CAIN'T RIDE WITHOUT HEP)
by Mac McAnear

Cowboy on wild horse

A wild stallion, never been tamed,
Captured by ruse and a rope
By a bunch of rustling cowboys
Whose leader only one hope.

To ride that bronco even steven
He had no chance at all
Needed help from all the hands
No guarantee he wouldn't fall.

His Daddy who resided on the ranch
Had an idea or two
"Son," said he, experience showing
"Here's what I'd try to do!"

"You're not good enough to win outright
"That's the plainest fact
"Need the help of my loaded friends
"Then some old-fashioned tact!"

"Get two riders on either side
"To keep you firm in the saddle
"They'll hold steady when you fly in the air
"But we'll win this little battle."

Cowboy on wild horse

So it was in that wild ride
Bucking and rearing to get free
That the Stallion became his plaything
Through the use of chicanery.

Lo and behold things to be done
On that ranch where his Daddy lived
Roofs to fix, fences to mend,
Else they'd leak like a sieve.

The outside world got wind of him
A monkey who played in the trees
Decided to take away the ranch
Leave him swinging in the breeze.

Made a raid inside the ranch
Showing lots of nerve
He swaggered a bit, postured a lot
Never got ahead of the curve.
