Lyrics1. I made up my mind to change my way,
To leave the crowd that was too gay,
And leave my native home awhile
And travel west for many a mile.
2. It was in the merry month of May,
When I started for Texas far away,
I left my darling girl behind,
She said her heart was only mine.
3. When I embraced her in my arms,
I thought she had ten thousand charms.
Her caresses soft, her kisses sweet,
Saying, "We'll get married next time we meet."
4. It was in the year of '83
That A.J. Stinson hired me.
He said, "Young man, I want you to go,
And follow my herd into Mexico."
5. Well, it was early in the year,
When I volunteered to drive the steers.
I can tell you, boys, it was a lonesome go,
As the herd rolled on toward Mexico.
6. When I arrived in Mexico,
I longed for my girl, but I could not go.
So I wrote a letter to my dear,
But not a word did I ever hear.
7. I started back to my once-loved home,
Inquired for the girl I called my own.
They said, she'd married a richer life,
"Therefore, cowboy, seek another wife."
8. "O, curse your gold and your silver, too,
O, curse the girls that don't prove true.
I'll go right back to the Rio Grande,
And get me a job with a cowboy band."
