It’s called the Cowboy Way

It’s called the Cowboy Way

Shorty McDaniels was not short at all, but got ribbed because he was six foot eight inches tall.
Where he came from, no one knew fer sure cept it was said that he got shot in a wild card game down El Paso way. How he ended up here I caint rightly say.

Shorty was a tall and lanky guy. When he smiled, his eyes lit up the entire sky. Women would look at him and mutter, “Oh my oh my.”
He looked like a teen aged boy.
He wern’t too bright, and appeared kinda coy.
He went to the dance with Wilma Fay. What went on is legand, and is still spoken of to this day.
The band lit up a hot little tune, for Shorty and Wilma it didn’t come none too soon.
That cowboy took to dancing like a wolf to the chase. It was amazen to every one in the entire place.
For hours on end they danced to every tune, til the band said no more Shorty, let’s call it a day.
Shorty and Wilma were not ready to quit, and while they watched the band go away, they took their dancen out into the street. Now cowboys and dancen never cause much of a stir, but when them two got roaring it was just plain sweet. They kicked up a whirlwind that took em away complete.
Some times in the late of the night, just before sunrise you might see a marvelous sight, cause right there where midnight ends and daylight begins, you can still see em just a stomping their feet.
Oh life will roll on forever and a day, but down there near El Paso, why it is still called the cowboy way.
