Funeral Poems For Cowboys: "A Cowboy's Last Ride"

 

 

 

A COWBOY'S  LAST RIDE 

 

Put spurs on the foot of my coffin

Put my comfiest boots on my feet

Put my hat on to face down the future

Then ride out for my final meet

 

We'll take a last ride together

We'll get dust and tears in our eyes

We'll sleep out in the moonlight

And count our blessings under the skies

 

We'll share a last swig of whisky

We'll share the last beans from the pot

We'll all sing round dying embers

Until my last ride has to stop
