Look out for Sagebrush!

Oh, how he sings
Raggy music to the cattle as he swings
Back and forward in the saddle on a horse
That’s syncopated gated
By the funny meter
To the roar of his repeater

How he runs
When they hear the fella’s gun
Because the western folks all know
He’s a highfalutin’, rootin’, tootin’
Son of a gun from Arizona

He’s some cowboy
Talk about your cowboy
Ragtime cowboy Joe

Today OOOOOOPS! (July 24!!) is the National Day of the Cowboy! The song above is by G. Clarke / L. Muir / M. Abrahams. 1912. Jeepers!!
