Whether you’re young or gettin’ old
there’s ‘cowboy poetry’ to be told
‘bout those men who rode the range,
some folks thinkin’ it plum’ strange
But, ya might just wanna take a listen,
tho’ tales could cause tear drops to glisten,
stories told of times cowboys lived,
hard work, and carin’ hearts they’d give
Of nights men sat ‘round blazin’ fires,
told windy stories of life’s desires
in a form that may seem odd today,
then, ‘cowboy poetry’ was relaxin’ play
They’d express what happened on the trail,
share with others hardy-hale,
dreams of what the future’d bring
if a wide loop they could only swing
They talked ‘bout critters of all breeds,
in ‘cowboy poetry’, claimed their creeds
to settle land way out west there,
an’ along the way, a sweetheart snare
But sadly, those early days are gone,
tho’ thankfully, their tales live on
as poets tell of the cowboys' plight,
hopin’ they got the stories right…

COWBOY POETRY WISDOM...
Reciting poetry is like a haircut. If it's good, you feel like a million bucks.
If it's bad, you hide your head under a hat.
Cowboy Poetry is as old as them cowboys themselves! For lack of anything
better to do after a hard day on the range, cowboys of the past would
sit around the camp fire at night and entertain one another with poems,
tall tales, or just some good old cowboy stories!
