Me and my uncle went a ridin' down
We stopped over in Santa Fe,
Besides it was the hottest part of the day
We led our ponies into the stall,
Two days in the saddle, my body hurt.
And tried to wash off some of that dusty dirt.
West Texas cowboys, all over town,
Just in from roundup, you know it seemed a shame
Hollow Jack the winner takes a gain.
From the beginning my uncle started to win
Some said he's cheating. Aw, but that can't be!
And I'm about as honest as a Denver man can be.
One of them cowboys, you know he started to draw.
I had to shoot another, now he won't grow old
We hightailed it down to Mexico, Mexico, way down to Mexico
God bless cowboys, God bless gold.
He taught me well, boys, taught me all I know.
Left him lying there by the side of the road
