Waggoner's Lad: Lyrics
As performed by Cisco Houston

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