The Songs He Sang

Waggoner's Lad: Lyrics

As performed by Cisco Houston

Arr & adpt Cisco Houston

Appears on:
My horses ain't hungry
They won't eat your hay
Your people don't like me
I'm going away

Your people don't like me
They say I'm too poor
They say I'm not worthy
To enter your door

I know they don't like you
You're poor I am told
It's your love that I'm wanting
Not silver and gold

I'll build me a cabin
In the mountains so high
Where the blackbirds can't see me
Or hear my sad cry

Your horses are hungry
Go feed them some hay
And sit down beside me
As long as you may

Of note:

Could any one sound as mournful as Cisco without decending into self-pity?
