Thread Name: Strawberry Roan - ( & Sheepherder version?)
Subject: Strawberry Roan
While recently chasing cows in eastern orgeon I was playing some old cowboy tunes. One old timer who had worked that country for a while had an interesting arrangement based on sheep herders set to the tune of the Strawberry Roan. He said he had heard it while working on the ZX or MC ranch in southern Oregon from a Wyoming buckaroo.
I was wondering if anybody had it written down anywhere. I would like to get the words. The old timer said he couldn't remember enough to make it worth writing it down.
