Cowboy SingingCowboys and pioneers spent a lot of slow moving time on the range and on the many trails westward. To pass the time, numerous songs and ballads were made up and sung along the way. For the vast majority of these historic lyrics, the author is unknown and many versions often existed. 




What keeps the herd from running,

Stampeding far and wide?
The cowboy's long, low whistle,
And singing by their side.

No loopholes now are framing
Lean faces, grim and brown,
No more keen eyes are aiming
To bring the redskin down;
But every wind careening
Seems here to breathe a song
A song of brave careering,
A saga of the strong.







Old Prospector

Gold Prospector by Russell Lee , 1940.
