Thread Name: Origins: Ballad of the Cowpuncher (Genny Haley)
Subject: Origins: I Am and Old Cow Puncher
I have been singing this song for years, and it is time I finally gave credit to the author. Is a spoof on traditional cowboy songs, to the tune of the Texas Rangers. First verse:
I am an old cow puncher
I punch those cows so hard
I've got me a cow punching bag
Way out in my back yard
This bag is made of leather
And so are cows of course
When I get tired of punching cows
I go and punch my horse.
Can anyone tell me who wrote this?
Thank you. Great forum.
