Beneath That Pecos Sun

Beneath That Pecos Sun

A Poem by James

Just a little Ditty

He was a rough and tumble cowboy
he left his home and all his kin.
He rode a big Montanan stallion
sixteen hands and black as sin.
He rode down to those Texas plains
with just his saddle, rope and gun.
He sang a song as on he rode
beneath that Pecos Sun.

He rode into a cow camp
dusty and dirty from the trail
and spied the big, tall foreman
rugged face and tough as nails.
He said I'm from up Montana
and I was born to rope and ride.
He tossed his loop around a steer
it gored him and there he died. 

They picked up the dead young cowboy
and they laid him in the ground.
His headstone said he had no name
but his grave can still be found.
And, the people who traveled by his grave
they all stop and bow and pray
for the rough and tumble cowboy 
whose gravestone marks their way.
