When the West Was Legend

Few now look back on those times that are gone
When Hoodoo and Rudebaugh rode rough stock;
When Clantons and Cowboys carved out Tombstone
And the West was legend with Wyatt and Doc.

There's Jesse amd Frank and Youngers of course--
Daltons and Wild Bunch and many forgot;
Billy the Kid and that Wild Bill Hickok--
John Wesley Hardin: another hard lot.

Too few now know of old Buffalo Bill--
Cowboys are just jokes and those to be feared;
Good western movies are rare and too few--
Ranch land is shrinking and too often cleared.

The Old West is fading and few give a damn--
Long gone are Bat Masterson and Luke Short;
There's no more Blackjack Ketchem or Black Bart--
Belle Starr's forgotten and Judge Roy Bean's court.

Few now look back on those times that are gone
When Hoodoo and Rudebaugh rode rough stock;
When Clantons and cowboys carved out Tombstone
And the West was legend with Wyatt and Doc.
