I don't recall who I wrote this with. My mind is gone.
Old vaquero Red dust on your straw sombrero Ainít you weary of the rustlers and the rattlesnakes Find some shelter from the weather All these summers turned your skin to leather And how much more can your faded saddle take
Old vaquero Say farewell to that ranchero Canít you see time is running low in your canteen For once donít be stubborn mi amigo Find a senorita in Tampico Fence her off a grassy acre by a desert stream
So compadreÖvaya con dios And may evíry morning find you giving thanks For you have crossed many a rio Knowing dust awaits you on that final bank
Old vaquero Donít you fret about dinero Prove to your grey mare that prayer and fortune will provide Ride across the wild Sierra Madres Find a mission with a faithful Padre Let him walk you in a white robe to a riverside
Old vaquero Say farewell to that ranchero Canít you see time is running low in your canteen
Nice write, couch, I really like the verses and gone are the days of the AABA song structure which I feel can still tell a very strong story song. The simple acoustic melody is perfect for this one. Thanks for sharing.
The AABA structure suits alot of songs but it's not easy to write.
Yeah, I have a few songs in that structure. One I cowrote years ago, we re-did for sync. I'll have to share it sometime. And one was on Bill Scull's CD long long ago. I believe you had one on there too.
yes, he put out a CD back in the day LOL Entitled A NIGHT WITHOUT LOVE, and one of the songs was "Rough & Tumble" by Robert George and Wyman Griffith. Great song too. Guess I'm making myself ancient right along w/ you. lmbo
