The Wild West
The Cowboy's Life
The bawl of a steer to a cowboy's ear is music of sweetest strain
And the yelping notes of the gray coyotes to him are a glad refrain...
...A cowboy's life is a royal life, his saddle his kingly throne.
Saddle up, boys, for the work is play when love's in the cowboy's eyes,
when his heart is light as the clouds of white that swim in the summer skies.
- from Songs of the Cowboys, 1921
