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.
 
Ê
 
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.
 
Ê
 
And she rode like she carried the mail,
 
And her eyes, they'd set fire to the prairie,
 
Alongside the Santafe Trail.
 
Ê
 
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.
