There's a heck of a lot of stories to tell
"Bout Jerry, the Duke, and tall Jones as well,
'Bout Pete, the wrangler, and Kelly , the clown,
Together they'd get a crowd gathered round.
Rodeo cowboys,some young some old
Educated by yarns told,
Were as quiet as a prairie night,
Sure that each fact was certainly right!
Jerry had the buckin string
Salty broncs, bramas, and bulls he'd bring.
To throw a cowboy in a pile
"Damn good! and Jerry"d smile.
Duke drove semi- hauled the stock,
Loaded chutes with cowboy talk.
Rodeo performance done- he'd tip a few
Jokes redone to pointat you!
Tall Jones did the play by play
Each cowboy would have his day,
To be glorified or poked in fun,
It was accepted---agood job done.
Pete, the wranglerand pick-up man,
Tells the cowboy I think you can
The stout bay was the best
Pete's strong arms did the rest.
Kelly. the Louisanna man,
Brightest shirts in all the land
Would bait and tease the bulls that buck,
Prolong a cowboy's life and luck.
Four cowboy's alike in a whole lot of ways
Livin' cowboy life in each of their days
Standing by a whiskey barrel-hats circling a floor
Rodeo words loud laughter teaching more.
