Along The Santa Fe Trail

Misc. Cowboy

Say, Pard, have you sighted a schooner,

Way out on the Santafe Trail,

They made it here monday or sooner,

With a water keg tied to the tail.

There was Daddy and Maw on theÊÊmule seat,

And somewhere along by the way

Was a towheaded gal on a pinto,

Alongside the Santafe Trail.


2. I seen her ride down the arroya,

ÊWay out on the Arkansas,

With a smile like an acre of sunflowers,

And a little brown quirt in her hand.


And she rode like she carried the mail,

And her eyes, they'd set fire to the prairie,

Alongside the Santafe Trail.


3.Ê I know a gal down by the border,

That I ride to El Paso to sight.

I'm aquainted with a heart-flyin oder,

And I sometimes kiss some gals, Good night.

But, Lord, they're all ruffles and beadin',

ÊAnd afternoon tea by the pail,

Compared to the sort of stampedin',

That I got on the Santafe Trail.
