Journey's West

A cowboy's journey west
Traveling wagon train was the best

No Mercedes Benz or jumbo planes
Carved forests, climbed mountains, & plowed the plains

Beans and cornbread soothes hunger pangs
A bonnet or ten gallon hat protects our brains

Sleeping under stars watching asteroids
Resting our butts and healing hemorrhoids

I smell the Pacific from across the valley
And yell in delight, "We're now in Cali!"
