A man who has spent his life on horseback chasing cattle.
He hung up his bridle by his bed on the wall
His rig is preserved on a stand by the stall
His old Appaloosa has been turned out to graze
As he sits in his rocker and dreams of old days

For years he worked hard herding cattle all day
He worked hard to earn a poor cowboy’s pay
There were days he would rise barely bearing the pain
He would climb in the saddle and hang on to the mane

Starting out riding drag then flank and then swing
Then point man a position he wanted more than anything
The job was hard but it beat the rest
It didn’t take long till he was the best

He worked hard to work his way up to trail boss
He was tough but fair a man no man would cross
And his horse came to be his very best friend
They stuck together through thick and through thin

Hot summer days and winters so cold
Misery torment and torture untold
But when it was finally all said and done
He would never have traded with anyone
