Cowboy Poetry and Music and More at the BAR-D Ranch

Boston, Massachusetts
Meredith Fahey



A Cowboy Is Made of...

Give me a cowboy
A little rough around the edges
Made of steel,
From the top of his boots to
The top of his hats

Give me a cowboy
Who's gonna be a man someday
Made of leather,
Tanned by the sun
and chapped by the rain

Give me a cowboy
Who listens for his missus' supper bell
But who isn't afraid to ride off into the sunset
Who isn't afraid to stare down the sky

Give me a cowboy
Simple and friendly
Calloused but warm
Who can lasso me when
I stray too far

2002, Meredith Fahey
