The Way A Cowboy Gives Thanks

Steve Lucas

Most folks’ lists is going to be fairly short, although the Lord’s been best to most.

They shouldn’t say an excessive amount of they sure shouldn’t boast.

But I’ll warn you, if your cowboy continues to be asked towards the feast

Be ready for an oration of 20 minutes at the very least.

‘Cause a cowboy’s seriously grateful for that benefits God bestows

Most days it’s just him and also the Lord, and you may bet they know,

The miracles he sees every single day originate from paradise above

He and God link it’s almost hands in glove.

So he can’t wait to talk about what he’s seen with anybody who’ll listen

‘bout the good thing about fall colors and spider webs that glisten

Each morning sun, and calves over sleeping the colour tone.

He won’t go ahead and take credit it’s all what God makes.

He won’t see folks getting antsy, or even the dinner getting cold

He’ll keep discussing his lengthy list. He can’t be controlled.

So go on and eat your dinner, he won’t actually anyway.

He’ll eat his later together with his dog and horse. It’s only the cowboy way

On Thanksgiving Day, folks will participate in houses across our land

To talk about whatever they are grateful for, both little and also the grand

Like health insurance and wealth and family, food, pets and buddies they’ve made,

compensated off loans, new smartphones, as well as their daughter’s passing grades.
