Running with the crowd

Charlie laid this advice on us many years ago...maybe that's why our generation has it's shit together a little more than the last few. Who knows? Still words to live by for cowboys of every color...

"Come all you young cowboys and listen to me
And don't waste your life on that ol' hanging tree
And don't think that size ever makes man small
You find out it's nothing at all
Pay no attention when the ill words are said
Don't cheat in poker and don't lose your head'
Cause cowboys are human and bullets kill dead
Six guns don't make a man tall
'Cause it's all so easy to run with the crowd
And they're a damn good bunch of cowboys
Makes a man feel proud
Do a honest day's work for the money you spend
Be fast with the ladies and slow with the man
Be kind to your horses and true to your friends
And treat every mother's son fair
Don't stay in town late on a Saturday night
Don't let no one tease you into a fight
'Cause when they're settled with guns
There ain't nobody right
It's a short trail that leads to nowhere
'Cause it's all so easy to run with the crowd
And they're a damn good bunch of cowboys
Makes a man feel proud"
