"We Raise The Kind The Cowboys Ride"
Did you ever have a colt so good,That you thought he could read your mind?Just show him what you wantedAnd the rest would fall in line. I found myself better mountedA better horse I could not choose. I had named him Clayton's Driftwood After the son that we did lose.
But when you have a great One the word will get around. The Waggoner Ranch came to look And Old "Drifty" was Vernon bound. To the home of Poco Bueno and Pretty Buck, Jesse James and Blackburn, too, Midnight, Pretty Boy and Pep Up Just to name a few.
I'd hoped he'd become a legend Because he carried Clayton's brand To be held in awe by everyone And known around the land. But, alas, this was not meant to be A freak accident cut him down, But if a horse can go to heaven He'll have a lot of stars in his crown. I bet when he got to heaven With that brand shining on his left side, That he was claimed by the boy who owned the brand Who now rides him with great pride. He'll be the best mounted cowboy in heaven As he rides through the hills up above And he'll cherish Old "Drifty" the same as I And he'll give him much care and love. - Lee Jones
