A Cowboy is

A Cowboy is.

Out on the stock route 10 mile days
Keep those cattle moving
He hopes there’s grass and water, prays
His seat he won’t be losing…… them yang yang horses

The cattle settle down at night
Bout midnight up they jump in fright
Camp is damaged, swags alight
You wonder why he’s boosing….drive you to drinking

You follow the tracks dodge a brown snake
Old horse does sidestep Blue
Grab for saddle monkey Jack does make
Then gets off the ground quick, too

Takes all day to find the mob
And a few strays on their own
The stock route has fences Bob
But numbers are right, I own

So we bring em to the rail head 
And put em in a yard
And head for the nearest pub, Fred
Drink a few pints of fourex at the bar.

Don Johnson….Australia

Sea snake is most venomous then comes ol coffin head Taipan
who lives in Queensland Australia
2nd most poisonous on the planet im told, then comes Brownie 3rd
i've killed a dozen in my time in the Aussie bush, we have a short fellow called the death adder he will kill you too if you step on him.
Brownie is 10 times worse than a Cobra. So it gets the adrenaline pumping
if you fall of your horse near a brown snake
regards mate
