Artist's Description

This fellow was a part of the group that I was with at the reenactment of California Gold Rush Days. He sure did look the part, eh? I was so pleased with this picture, because he certainly depicted a cowboy as we would expect to see one in the 1800’s! Gruff he may have looked, but he was quite the gentleman! It looks as if he is reaching for a gun, but nope, that’s just the way he walks. I fondly called him, “Hoss!” He had no idea that I was taking his picture, since I had a 300mm zoom on him from ten feet up in the air! This photograph was taken with a Canon XTI in Old Town Sacramento. Here’s looking atcha “Hoss!”

For those of you out there who want a cowguy, here ya go – some music to help you visualize!!

Dixie Chicks – Cowboy Take Me Away

Cowboy Take Me Away lyrics

I said I wanna touch the earth
I wanna break it in my hands
I wanna grow something wild and unruly

I wanna sleep on the hard ground
In the comfort of your arms
On a pillow of bluebonnets
In a blanket made of stars

Oh it sounds good to me I said

Cowboy take me away
Fly this girl as high as you can
Into the wild blue
Set me free oh I pray
Closer to heaven above and
Closer to you closer to you

I wanna walk and not run
I wanna skip and not fall
I wanna look at the horizon
And not see a building standing tall

I wanna be the only one
For miles and miles
Except for maybe you
And your simple smile

Oh it sounds good to me
Yes it sounds so good to me

Cowboy take me away
Fly this girl as high as you can
Into the wild blue
Set me free oh I pray
Closer to heaven above and
Closer to you closer to you

I said I wanna touch the earth
I wanna break it in my hands
I wanna grow something wild and unruly
Oh it sounds so good to me

Cowboy take me away
Fly this girl as high as you can
Into the wild blue
Set me free oh I pray
Closer to heaven above and
Closer to you closer to you
Closer to you
Cowboy take me away.
Closer to you
