Nuts and Bolts


I remember it was years ago
Back when I was green
A driftin' about from place to place
Young hungry and lean
I hired on a horse ranch
Up the Colorado way
Breaking colts which suited me fine
So I decided to stay
There was an old cowboy by the name of Ben
Who worked this outfit
And when it comes to taming horses
I've seen nobody better yet
He could take a wild white eyed nag
And in an hour or two
The horse would do just about anything
That old Ben would ask
His voice was low and smooth
And his hands had a velvet touch
And I figgered there must be a trick to this all
So I asked him if there was such
He sat there kinder thinking
A scratching on his chin
Spit out a string of tobacco
And looked up at me and grinned
"Well kid, " When it comes to horses
There ain't no formula to horses
They all pretty much want to be man's best friend
But if yer asking me
For some wise words of some sort
That you could put down in some quote
Well, when it comes down to horses
It's just all about Nuts and Bolts
And he must've seen my puzzled look
For he continued to explain
"It's really pretty simple
And it works just the same
For Studs, Mares, Fillies,
Or even Feisty Colts."
"If the rider is a little NUTS
The horse is sure to BOLT! "

The hour yet bears for thee and me

If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
