Blue Mountain (F.W. Keller) My home it was in Texas My past you must not know I seek a refuge from the law Where the sage and pinon grow cho: Blue Mountain, you're azure deep Blue Mountain with sides so steep Blue Mountain with horse head on your side You have won my heart to keep For the brand "LC" I ride And the sleeper calves on the side I'll own the "Hip-Side-and-Shoulder" when I grow older Zapitaro, don't tan my hide I chum with Latigo Gordon I drink at the Blue Goose Saloon I dance at night with the Mormon girls And ride home beneath the moon I trade at Mons' store With bullet holes in the door His calico treasure my horse can measure When I'm drunk and feeling sore Yarn Gallus with shortened lope Doc Few-Clothes without any soap In the little green valley have made their sally And for Slicks there's still some hope In the summer time it's fine In the winter teh wind doth whine But say, dear brother, if you want a mother There's Ev on the old chuck line From Austin and Alta Fife, Cowboy and Western Songs SOF oct96
