Mad Jack Hanks: Tales from the O-NO Ranch 1-23-12

Ol’ pard, ya purt near convinced me

that you wouldn’t tell a lie.

I wuz purt near believin’ that

that ol’ hoss of yours could fly.

 

Ya bragged ’bout his breedin’,

Recommended Stories For You

Fast Freddie by Ain’t Got A Clue,

and I had purt near decided there

weren’t nothin’ he couldn’t do.

 

I wuz purt near spellbound when you

made a run at that big ol’ log.

You wuz whippin’ and a’spurrin’,

gonna’ jump it like an ol’ coon dog!

 

And ya purt near made it pard,

jest four legs got in the way!

I ain’t never seen a prettier somersault

than the one I seen that day.

 

Yer ol’ pony wuz purt near flyin’,

too bad he wuz upside down,

and you wuz still in the saddle when

you boys plowed up the ground!

That wuz purt near the most awful wreck

I reckon I’ve ever seen.

The hair on the back of my neck stood up

and my face went purple green!

 

Pard, I believe that you’d made a purty fair

hand if fate had give you more time.

You might have purt near figured out

the cow and jest maybe learned

how to handle yer twine!

Yer wreck got all the boys to talkin’.

You sure caused quite a rattle.

The bad news is yer deader than dead,

and the good news is I purt near

loaned you my new saddle!

 

It’s too cold to ride the ol’ Harley so I’m off to the barn to ride my ol’ fat paint hoss, Howdy!

Stay tuned, check yer cinch on occasion and I’ll c y’all, all y’all. v
