Slow down for the gully,  Shiftin' through the gears.  Ridin' over wash outs,  To pick up fattened steers


Mussel and Blood, the Watoozie Special,  Charlie Sampson and Deep Springs,  Bustin' out and buckin' hard.  Liftin' clowns out of the ring


Sam handed his father the note, and his father taking the letter in his blackened hand read it.   "Uh." his father grunted. "What did Dennis look like?"


Sam shrugged his shoulder as kids do when they don't know the right answer, but his father wasn't content. "Did he have any bruises?" Ian asked. Nah, don't think so. Sam answered sheepishly. "Well then." Ian said handing the note back to his son. "Looks like you might be in need of a few lessons." "But the teacher," that was all that Sam managed to say. "Bugger the teacher." Ian told him. "Every night after dinner I'll teach you. All of you." he said turning his glance back towards his eldest. "I won't have no boy of mine licked in a fight."


Er through flickering stars a bright,  Wandering silently through the night
