    Mornings came early, too early
    The ground was hard but I slept
    The day was long and the sun hot

    The saddle gets to a man in a painful
    Way after sittin in it all day and
    Riding hard. But on we rode, all of
    Us.

    These cattle had to make it to
    Market and it was we who got
    'em there. Counted, put in pens
    The cattle, not us.

    Now many of those cows are in
    Your grocery store, under plastic
    Put there by folks who didn't really
    Know about them like we do.
    Butchered, put on grills, served
    To laughing friends with beer,
    I didn't put 'em there....
    I was just one of the cowboys

    A true cowboy. What a beautiful piece of writing. I'm very sad. Miss you AZ

    It's been a while.
    I'm not sure I want to do it again.
    There is always one.
    Some night when there are no lights.
    When I forget what is wrong or right.
    And just feel.
    And let it all go.
    To the wind.
    And I feel free.
    Some nights.
